Stage 25 the front bulkhead. I Had my first problem with this stage. The gearing was not turning smoothly like others had found so got out the hammer & block of wood to protect the shaft like the advice, gave it a couple of hits from the opposite end to the 43T gear. Does seem a bit drastic to give it a bash but hey! It worked & now I have a nice & smooth rotation BigGrin

I really do like this one as its more in the class of model engineering. All if those parts just look such precisecquality parts.

The way the servos fit the tray - all precise and neat.

Hope you are having a great time with your build.

Thanks Tony & Alan for looking in.

Yes agree it is a bit like that. I do like the fact that its all very neatly arranged as well BigGrin

Not liking the transmitter & receiver though especially with no failsafe. Confused Think ill change it to a 2.4ghz. Just need a KR200 receiver as will use the same transmitter as the RB7.
