The way I see it, it is a dynamic system with a lot of outward pressure. Also consider how hard the servos have to work to maintain AoA of the blades compared to some light notchyness in the grips.

Thanks. When I built my Rush 750, the grips were quite tight until after I had spun it up once. I thought maybe these were similar. I managed to get the grips upside down while watching Paul and Ringo play so I get to pull them apart anyhow. I did the first side right but must have flipped it prior to installing the second one. I hate when I do that.
