Things to locktite:

1) The stainless steel set screw in the green machined portion of the rotor head. This set screw, when tightened, should rest in the flat machined onto the main rotor shaft. The set screw should be at the top of the flat area, per Venom.

2) The knurled collar (also annodized green) at the base of the rotor head. I have loosened mine, applied a small amount of blue loctite here , and tightened this back up as well.

3) The black set screw in the silver collar on the main shaft immediately above the frame.

4) The black set screw in the aluminum main gear hub at the bottom of the main shaft.

All of these things should be locktited and kept tight.

Please note that there is a collar above the main gear and identical to the one above the frame. This collar is used as a spacer and does not require a set screw.

I believe that Venom does fly each machine prior to its leaving the factory. Chris of Venom (C of G) would have to comment on this.
