If someone has a better idea, PLEASE let me know I'm sittting at full backwards trim and still have to pull back a little to prevent forward drift.

I removed everything from the shaft today due to TB effect problems. Discovered the outer shaft has a hole in it for the top screw of the lower blade holder. Once I lined it up and mounted the screws, life got much better for me. This will prevent improper spacing between the blades, and will get the distance for the swashplate correct also.

Hope that helps.
