I am putting together a Rave 90 ENV. Question: is it normal to have about 2mm up and down play on the main gear?. After assembling the clutch, main gear and tail drive gear the auto sleeve is not snug, it has about a 2mm play allowing the main gear to float up and down. Every helicopter I have assembled before, mostly Hirobo, JR and Kyosho,the main gear is always fixed with no up and down play. Your feedback is appreciated.

Mine has very little up and down play. Try adjusting your main shaft collar a little more snug, up against the bearing support.

Hope that helps.

Main shaft is snug. The clutch sleeve is too long allowing the main gear play to float up and down. I noticed that Next D has 2 X 14 X 17.5 X 1 mm washers for the clutch sleeve assembly for the Balistic to get rid of this play I suppose, but it is not referenced for use with the ENV nitro. Are you using any washers on yours?
