I know I saw this mentioned before, but, during my pre-flight I found a screw missing from the top bearing block. Checked them out and sure 'nuf......1/2 to 3/4 turn on most of them in the upper and middle bearing blocks. The ones that also hold the servo brackets. Yes, I use Lock-tite and nothing else was loose. Oh well, maybe temperature changes and me taking it in and out of the shop.

Make that pre-flight. I'm really, really, reeeallly happy I caught this before

I watched a guy test hover a new 500 size at an indoor event. Just a hover, all well... then, anti-rotation pin, which was also elevator, backed out. Nice catch by the safety nets, but, ban on anything over 300.
