"Something is not set up right". correctomundo

It was supposedly pretty much as new, only hovered a few times by a complete novice and then given up on yatta yatta

Turns out that one of the 6 blade grip bearings was missing, as well as 2 step washers and the washers at each end of the feathering shaft...my guess is someone changed the feathering spindle and in doing so lots of 'little bits' fell out on the floor and didn't get put back

It's all sorted and flying ok now...just a bit weird how the t/r spools up at high speed before the main blades get up to hover rpm..kinda makes it want to tip over straight away just from the t/r thrust....all good fun tho
