Hello Ralph, Robert Pietch came up to me and told me to tighten the screws on the bearing and don't run them loose.

Ralph are going back to Florida before the worlds and are you trying any new set ups.
Thanks Billy

Pole I always get a glitch looking at the pole but after a nice drink no glitching just a long stare

But I have the problem when tighten the screws that the radio tray is not able to float because the tray is pressed down to the plastic middle bracket.

Does somebody has a solution for it (screw tighten but still floating)?

Make sure when you snug the tray the reciever box is not hitting the chassis. I actually have the back of my tray shimmed up 1 mm I also have a .3 clutch shim on top of the bearing shaft of the servo saver to stop the saver from bouncing up and down. Thick cushion double stick tapeonthe reciever In the box In our testing you reallY don't want any slapping around. You can put those nylon shims from electric motors on each side of the bearing of the radio tray to snug screw without over tightening. The tray will still float. Hope this helps. Phil
