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.
I will assume you filed it off the 'screw' end of the spindle?
