Default Axe CP main shaft collar

Hello, I have a problem reinstalling the main rotor shaft on an axe cp. Does the main shaft collar (with the setscrew) go above or under the top frame member? That is, under the swashplate or under the frame? When installed above the frame, the main shaft can move upwards until the main gear seems to make contact with the upper frame. Your answers are highly appreciated.

Jimbo,

The top collar goes underneath the top part of the frame where the top bearing is located. The main gear is inside the frame on the bottom and becomes the other piece that keeps everthing tight and running against the bearings.

It goes under the upper bearing. Don't forget to put the spacer on the shaft just above the lower bearing.

Thanks guys, my heli went awry and hit the ceiling, hard. But, due in no small part to your help, I fixed it. Additionally, the main wire running from the e-board to the battery (or the other way around) broke and I delicately soldered it back on. Whew, no new e-board, at least.
