not sure of your problem but it's something I always check now as a precaution.
Thanks, I might try swapping part by part between the Logo grips and tarot parts and see if I can positively nail down the culprit. The thrust bearing diameter appeared to be ok, there was the usual small difference between outside diameters (and inside) between the two races, and they were located correctly with the smaller ID on the outside. It could that the difference was not great enough, but there was a difference (about 0.2mm).

My old RJX 600 used thrust bearings like that but the tail blade grip was designed so that the bearing seat did not contact the upper thrust bearing race.

same with the TZ Frenzy 600E. thrust bearing OD was the same for both races, worked fine.
not the case with Trex models.

I got out to Whittier again today, with five machines in the car.

Due to time constraints, I only flew two of them, but I had a great time with just the two!

I put in nine flights:

Six on Fusion 180 #2,

Three on the Tarot 600!

The Tarot is uber smooth and precise (the JR 28X and JR servos are extremely precise).

An excellent flying helicopter!
