Yeah, the wheel bushings are tricky to get correct.There's a nice little trick I learned in here.I did'nt use a drill, just sand-paper and the wheels are turned out perfect and rotated with no slop at all...There is a member in RC Universe selling his 8S Habu beacause it will not take-off from his club's grass field..that's the first time I heard of a problem to this nature,anyone else having this problem??If someone needs a 8SHabu..its at RC Universe...
Must be really thick grass at that guy's field!
