Do you guys have the same problem that at full negative collective pitch and full elevator deflection, the elevator servo arm is hitting the tail block? I discover this when I am adjusting the cyclic throw in my BeastX, and I am not able to get the blue light because of the blocking.

I will need to grind down the tail block a bit with a dremel to give the servo arm more travel.

I just looked at one of my 500's. To get the servo arm to whack the tail boom block...you have to have some mighty extreme servo travel. If you're converting to FBL, was this a problem before the switch?

I do not have this problem before with my previous FB 500, but I only had 8 degree of cyclic pitch with it.

I am now using the second hole from the innermost for the cyclic arms. Should I go for one more hole further out?
