Default Three Problems Found

I found the following problems while assembling this heli:

1. No grease in the tail thrust bearing.

2. Tail blades were out of balance (fixed by applying a few drops of thick CA on one blades).

3. 3G version 2.0 90-degree tail blip.

Attached are some pictures of the heli.

I don't know what's more beautiful - your 550 or the amazing background in the pictures!!

That flying space looks pretty much like heaven.

Thanks man!

We often joke about our flying field with the million dollar view...just down the road from the county landfill.

But it is nice: no membership fee, no rules, two wind socks, a raised heli pad and some work benches.
Most days I have the place to myself.

More pictures of the place in my gallery if you're interested.

Man, I'm jealous. I use to fly at a field and my background was a sugarcane field.
