Are anybody using the Align metal tail case with the XL carbon bom. I cant get the tail case to fit. It`s tooooooooo tight.
Anybody have a fix for this?

I used a wedge in the slot/clamp area to open the tail case a bit.

The front on the Align CF frame is very tight also. It will go in both ends.

Just lightly sand the ends of the boom to make it fit. That's what I did. Just enough to take the shiny coating off.

Did what balbs did - worked perfectly and is the easiest way to go with this. Measured the depth in the tail case where the end of the carbon boom will seat and marked the boom where the tail case end would be - this way I don't sand up higher (in distance) on the boom than what's needed. This way you don't see any sanding marks or the dull finish when you put the Aluminum Tail Case on. Like balbs said, only enough to take the shiny finish off. Just sand - fit - and sand a bit more for what's needed to do the job - this way you will still have a nice tight fit when finished.
