I finished rebuilding my 500 and realized I didn't have a set o 500 bom supports, I installed the 550 ones with no horizontal fin, they are inside the tail blade disk but at zero pitch I have about an inch clearance, this is reduced to about 3/4" at either end of pitch range.

I can't imagine flexing the tail feathers that much at the rpm they are turning ?

Has anyone else done this. any bad results ?

a dozen flights no problem, no feedback here but LHS did mention that I could put more stress at the boom support joint with hard 3D, then I reminded him that I'm not yet doing Hard 3D.
