Hi, I am rebuilding my logo 10 with a longer tail boom. I had 50 flights on it and then its first crash...bent the tailboom and tail blades driveshaft. I ordered all new parts except # 2455, whick looks to be in perfect condition, but it will not slide over the new tail shaft! It doesn't even slide over the old tail shaft! I made sure to deburr the ends and there is nothing I can see making it not fit! I put a caliper on the shafts and they are both the same, but the control sleeve dia. is 0.005" under? Doesn't make sense... I took it apart 2 months ago and haven't messed with it since then. I wonder if cooler temps are making it not go together?

Is my part bad? Should I just buy a new sleeve?

thanks

In the crash, did the tr shaft bend? Possible you slightly kinked it and it may be barely noticeable to the eye... I would just get a new sleeve, you need that particular part as you know, "silky smooth".

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Yeah, replace it.
However, while waiting on parts I would probably have tested a drill in the same size as the shaft, to see if its fixable..
