There are some suggestions under the same page you went to previously, but under the "discussion" tab

I'm finding that when installing the horizontal stabilizer (1) there is a small block inside the fuse, at the leading edge, which results in a slight gap at the fuse and leading edge, when, (2) the "slot" is used to locate the trailing edge.

Is this right?

Why is that block inside the fuse?

Missed seeing the spare blades.

Checked the swarm price on the head. $7.44 vs $7.99 and the shipping weight is 250g, so not worth swarming.

Could not see a swarm button on the blades page.

$ 7.99 for a head like that - madness.

That Head is perfect for the Minimum, Spyro 111, I think that the plastic is durable enough and I must admit that I have given it a bit of a bashing myself.{as long as you don't forget to reassembled it the correct way.} The blades will also be OK, for those people who don't wish to make there own.

When the blade is pushed upwards the trailing edge of the blade will lift up more than the leading edge. If you view this from the side as it lifts it gives more negative pitch to the blade aerofoil.
If it does the opposite it will not work!

O.K., Rich, I'm sure that's helpful to the learned crowd: how do "we" assure this result with the head "as delivered." (How do "we" cure the defect?)

Many thanks

Could some kind, well-meaning person post the layman's guide to reassembly of the rotor head?

Thanks!
