Not sure if anyone has done this yet....

I got sick of the play in my grips. I figured it was caused by the feathering shaft being to long. So I squished my blade grips together tight to the head. Then I stuck my digital calipers in and took a reading of the distance between the grips while tight. Then I pushed the zero button on my calipers while open to the tight measurement. Then I removed the pressure pushing the blade grips tight and pushed the calipers open to get the distance of just how much longer my feathering shaft was. Turns out .25mm is too much. Because after I filed .25mm off the feathering shaft the heli holds a no hands hover like a champ.
