Hello, I have misplaced my manual and was wondering if anyone knew the parts numbers for the tail control rod and the metal standoff for the boom supports that comes off the frame? Also is there a carbon version of the tail control rod? The metal one gets play in it where the set screw hold the links. It was giving me a tail vibe. Thanks-Jay

Jay,

2523-015 is a 2mm carbon rod. Very light. Make SURE you use some heat shrink telfon heat shrink where it passes through the rod guides or it will wear very quickly.

Jay, for the control rod , I replaced it with a Raptor 90 metal rod (as per John Benario ) because of the play it developed as you mentioned .

Hi Jay,

I remember reading somewhere that it's a good idea to glue the pins on the Aluminium rod to stop that play your talking about developing. The teflon heat shrink is a must with the tail control rods as well, the MA clear telfon heat shrink works a treat

What do you gain with the carbon rod?

Is it just a little weight savings?

Is the freya part# 0414-136 the same as the d3 part?

I was trying to find it on ronz site and the size seemed the same.

Whoa mule.

I goofed. The rod for the D3 is the same construction as the Freya rod, but it's length is different/different part number. That puts you back to the 2mm rod option.

I'll edit the first post I made.

The 2mm carbon rod is a good deal lighter and not susceptable to the wear issue you experienced.

The part no. for Hirobo's heat shrink tube is 2400-020.
I also put a little CA glue in the set screw holes.

+1 for the heat shrink on the tail control rod. I would put it on whether you use the metal or carbon version due to wear. I can't confirm whether there is any clearance issues with the metal one as I use the carbon rod but I haven't had any wear since using the heat shrink.

We have seen a couple of failures at our club were the rod has cracked due to wear. I think Hirobo should include it as part of the kit and assembly instructions as it is a must. I also epoxy in the link rods and never had any issues after.

Also worth noting, I havn't needed to heat shrink the shorter rod to the servo as there isn't any wear, atleast on my heli, around the guide.

Carbon rod

When you order the carbon rod set that Dr Ben mentioned, what comes with it? Do you still need the ends and links or does it come like the metal one, with everything.

The carbon rod comes with links and link rods like the metal version. You need to get the heat shrink separately using the pn. above.

Which rod did you order?

The listed heatshrink fits the 5mm rod only, not the 2mm one. Small Parts.com has the smaller stuff for a reasonable price.

Hi guys

Do you get teflon tube for the 2mm rod?
Do you need to drill the rod guide out?

I seem to remember the 2mm being a snug fit without any extra tube.....

regards
Paul

PS: i have seen the 2mm carbon rod done 'SDX style' with a long plastic tube over the entire length.

I bought the 2mm rod and a different teflon covering

I hope it fits, we will see. It was whatever black teflon that ronz sold.
