I noticed that you did not put any CA on the outer portion of the bearing to plastic fit in the head.

I talked with a few people that did this to limit the amount of slop that developed after pushing the plastic head hard. They stated that the plastic grips would develop slop, and the head would not be as rigid after flying with out it.

Not sure what you think.

Download did not work for me either so as wesjanik said it was the wrong name I sent the link to myself and then modified the link name as above and opened it from my email and hey presto it worked. It looks like the link needs modifying by Bob.

(If you want to download the file now, right click on the Video link and then select "send to" and your email will open. Send the web address in the email to yourself. When you receive it modify the link name as above and use it to go to the download page by clicking on it. The rest you know).

Mr. Bob I have a question: I'm very new in this facinating hobby, and I would like to know if is posible to see how to set up the rotor head, but the entire process (including the radio, blade, gauge etc) with the Pantera50. May be the time is an issue but some advice would be apreciated. Or do you have some videos of that?

Saludos.
