i just read in another post about the ball links on the tail blades should be hooked to the leading edge of the blades.....mine were not....my tail hold fine. i switched them anyway, but what can i expect the next time i fly ? could someone please tell me what the difference is and what it causes ?

thanks, biggster

Most of the energy exerted on the blade is placed on the leading edge. With the ball link controlling the leading edge, blade deflection offsets are minimized (OPTIMAL). When the ball link is placed on the trailing edge, the energy exerted on the blade will slightly change the pitch of the tail rotor blade. Some people prefer this since this helps to make the gyro a little more effective (lower gyro gain is required). Either will work, but most prefer the ball to be on the leading edge of the blade so that the tail rotor pitch is more controllable.
