Hi all, I have a 50 titan thats about 12 months old and lately during flight (very mild 3d) the tail boom slips forward and so belt becomes slack and so loose performanc of tail. Have reset and retightened several times but continues to slip on every flight now, has anyone had same issue? How did you fix?

cheers

Use tape around the very end of the boom. It will give the boom a little extra diameter, so it can clamp a little better. I did this on my raptor. Quick and easy fix

had that problem with my rapture v-2 mostly using a carbon boom its slightly smaller diameter than an alum. boom. You could use a dab of C.A. or use a wrap of ele. tape then clamp it down

What boom are you using? You can scuff the insides of the frame with heavy grit sandpaper but I've never seen with a stock boom that it wouldn't get tight enough to stay put.
