I have a falcon that the tail just sucks on. Now matter what I do to the slider and arms it sticks and is not smooth causing the tail to not hold steady in hover at all. I see that the g20 offers an upgraded slider with upper and lower pivot arms that even out the control on the slider, (just like my hirobo sdx) Does anyone know if these parts will work on the falcon tail? Part #hi3087c and hi6102b
thanks
Jeff

Upgraded T/R Slider
Hey Jeff,
The same problem I had with my Airwolf and ordered a upgraded century all metal T/R slider assy. Works great and have not had a problem since it was installed..

I Have a Love Hate relationship with this hobby, Love to Build, but Hate to Crash..

I don't think the problem is the Slider/Tube itself, I have been flying that stock slider for 10 years now and I have never had what I could call a problem with it, unless there is a bur inside the Brass Tube, also I did find that if the Ball (see photo) is to loose it can cause binding on the Pitch Arm, if this is the problem just tighten the Ball a bit. or check to see how tight the Ball Links pivot, if the Links turn hard, push the pins out and see how tight the Links fit on/over the Pitch Plate, if the fit is tight you can use sand paper on the Pitch Plate (not the links) <<< some may see this is a problem but I see it as fitting the part

I have to admit that I haven't messed with the falcon yet this winter. From what I could tell it seemed to be in the brass tube. I even took a small round file to the inside of it. It slides good until the pivot is installed, then it binds some. Neither parts will bind by themselves until joined together. I am building a radikal now and replaced the tail slider and grips with align parts that I bought with the heli and boy what a difference between the brand new stock parts and the align. The align uses a hard plastic tube as the slider and boy is it smooth. I haven't taken the time to see if they are the same size as the falcon but if they are I will be installing them on it also.
thanks
Jeff

it sounds like the Ball needs to be tightened a bit, try that
