How do you keep the heli from shaking on rotor decell?
I installed the bearings and it shakes so bad it falls over on spool down.
It was glass smooth with the orings.

edit: It seems the problem is caused by the blades moving forward in their grips on decell.
I run an Arc 110 motor and the freestyle blades. The cogging on the motor, which is severe, and the loose fit of the blades (they are thinner at the root than stock) come in to play when I replace the damper with a non damper (bearing). They simply slip forward in the grips, one more than the other of course. I'm sure a 1 way clutch would solve this as wood a non coggy motor, but it is a micro after all.
I guess its back to o rings... sigh
