Gonna replace stock tail with aluminum on T-Rex 450 XL HDE. Already have the align aluminum tail case. What should I go with for slider, t/r pitch control arm, hub, grips, etc. Duzi and MH variations look good......costly.....but good. Stock Align slider keeps sticking as it moves back and forth on tail shaft, as though there were some scratches on inside of bearing or on the shaft., and it casues tail to twitch as servo fights to overcome sticky movement. I greased it and it helped, but I want something better and more reliable and smooth, so it wont cause tail twitch. Cost is a concern....but not an obstruction.
Thx....

The problem with your pitch plate may be with the screws that hold the links to the pitch plate. If they are too tight the assembly can bind right at the mid point. It also binds at the extreme end points.
Loosening the screws a tad goes a long way towards fixing the bind.

Upgrading the parts cures the bind completely and also lets you take full advantage of the pitch window.
I like the pitch parts that came around with the SE.
As you can see in the picture the links are now pinned.
I have retrofitted my XLs with the same parts.

I just got the new pitch slider as well... I really think it helps a ton when it comes to the pitch window and a smooth transition from side to side... and only 12.99, but you need the new tail grips with the 90 degree angle for the ball ends for the slider to work... so.. $40 bucks goes a long way for upgrading the tail.... Although the price for the new MH Pro tail is only $95, so if you hadn't purchased the Align tail box, I would say go the MH way,.....

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....
