Well this is my second time dealing with this problem but after all the good reviews ive gotta be missing something..first off, the main frame..jeez. i had a trex 450 and that thing was a BREEZE i would change a main frame in like 30 min..which for me is good lol. but belt tention and just everything was easy..on a blade 400 i seriously have to put it in a vice and c clamp the boom to tighten it down,, and it just pops back out sometimes.. i tripple checked the book and i KNOW im using the right screw..it does NOT want to go together..i is this just how it is? if so its a complete turn off for it..it flies good but other than that its the biggest pain to work on..
secondly , i put it all back together and now when i spin the blades to auto, it seems really tight, but belt tention is loose, and i oiled everything....thanks for reading my novel! hhaha

Yep boom positioning is a bit tough. Make sure the frame end of the boom is not deformed, usually I find when I am having problems the end in the area of the keyway slit is bent, 2 things to try first if it's not deformed using a dremel with a cutoff disc I enlarge the keyway just a bit to get it to slide in easier. Second using some heavy grit sandpaprt scuff up the frame end of the boom seems to give a better surface for the plastic to grab on to. Lastly I have replaced the stock screws with 4 2mm sefl tapping screws I find the stock screws strip easily.

I ended up using one of those aluminum e-flite tail servo mounts to help keep the boom from slipping into the frame. Just clamp it down, and you are all set. The boom stays put. I've also used scotch tape as well, but this did not work so well.
