I apologize for the crumby picture, its an old cellphone. I recently added this aluminum tail boom support on my X400. It also began to have glitch problems. Right where the tail rotor pushrod goes thru it is metal-on-metal contact. Is this possible to cause a glitch?

It might be...

The solution to metal-metal contact glitching is to bond the 2 components electrically. Try running a wire from the pushrod to the boom support. Make sure there is enough slack in the wire that it doesn't interfere with the free movement of the pushrod! (You can probably use the head of a screw to hold the wire to the support, then just twist the wire onto the pushrod while you're experimenting. Beware of any lacquers that might stop you getting a contact.)

If that works, then you can figure out how to make a more permanent connection.

Aha! Found the source of the glitch, a worn thru spot on the servo wire that contacts the frame. Turns out this tail boom and pushrod arrangement does not cause problems after all. Flying glitch free now!
