Default Align Trex 450 Sport Assembly

So, this is my very first helicopter build of any kind. I did have a Blade 400 3D but I didn't put that one together. Started with putting the ball links on to the flybar cage, re-assembled it with loctite and slid it on to the seesaw holder. Used my handy-dandy pocket caliper for an exact measure from the holder to the paddles....exactly 65 mm on both sides.

This is a great learning experience for me so if you guys have any pointers at all I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!

Spence

P.S. the last picture is my daughter - little helper & pit crew Grace

I'm also relatively new to these helis but it appears your paddles are on backwards. As view from the top they will spinning clockwise.
Hope this helps.

Thanks
