Take out EVERY screw that goes into metal and replace it using threadlock. The nice people at the factory are very experienced at not using any...

Do not put threadlock on screws that go into plastic...

Just got the SE kit. Do I really need to remove every screw on the head like Ball links? or is it more the main frame stuff. If that is what I need to do OK, it just seems like a lot of screws.

My head and tail seemed pretty good.

The frame was not as good, I did every screw on the frame.

Boy, I am sure glad I got HS-65's to put in this. The HS-56's just don't fit as well based on Bob finless video. Because the tabs are higher on the HS65's it looks like I should mount the front servos with the taps on the outside of the frame. Right? Any ideas for the back servo? Tabs inside or outside?

Thanks in advance,

Larry
