Folks,
I'm building my G700 Comp and the tail blades are super, duper tight! Can someone with a G700 Comp please measure your tail blade root and the blade grip spacing. I'd like to compare to my heli to see which one is incorrect.

Here's a picture of mine:

Agreed. I'm just trying to figure out if the blade grip is wrong size or the tail blade is wrong.

On my 700XX and 800XX, the main blades with shims were a very tight fit....

Don't remember measuring the delta....wouldn't be surprised if that situation were similar.

Again, I agree with you but I'm referring to the tail blades. I'm used to having the main blades tight but not the tail blades. Obviously, I'm not using shims as the blade root is bigger than the blade grips. I can fit them in but they don't move (without great force) event without the bolt and nut tightened. I'm pretty confident there is a problem. I just was hoping someone could confirm their measurements to help me isolate the problem.

Can you call a Goblin rep where you got yours?

Maybe it's a defective part/parts.
