Mine snapes together fine and i could push the tailshaft through the bearings without resistance, so its confirmed it all lines up. It was actually a little too wide and put an extra shim om the tailshaft to give a slight pre-tension outward on the tailshaft bearings.
I assume you will spool up without mains to make sure it runs vibration free?.

You seem impressed now...lets see your reaction when you fly it... hehe
Thanks!

I spun it up on my bench without the mains and it was smooth as silk. It was so unusually quiet it was almost not scary (like it should be, lol).

I got to hover it out front last week on a warm day but I'll have to wait for winter to break to get some real flight time on it. I was VERY impressed with the initial hover!
