Hey,
I have a Flyer LE and I am wondering if anyone has any advice regarding how tight or loose the arm post (the thing the gimbal handle attaches to) should be with regard to rotating. The arm post appears to be made with a bushing, not a bearing, and when I received my rig (used) the arm post was pretty stiff to turn. I loosened it up a bit, but not sure if that was the correct thing to do. Thanks. Dave

It is all about preference. I have a flyer arm that you can not change the tension, but on full size arms you can and it all depends on what feels right for you.

OK, thanks. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to destroy something.
