I just converted my Trex600N sport to the torque tube setup. First flight very solidly. After the 3rd flight machine has a lot of vibrations on tail,but nothing seems lose on the outside. Tomorrow I will check inner bearing and cup support. Is this normally mounted midway in the torque tube or does it need adhesive to keep from sliding forward or backward?

Thanks
Luis

Yes you should glue it to the tube.
Yes you should carefully glue the bearing to the torque tube and it is supposed to be shifted forewards if I remember right about 20mm foreward of the center mark of the torque tube for just this reason and resonance. See your instruction manual if you have one. Some are putting 2 of them on their torque tubes but you have to remove the pin on the end to be able to slide another bearing and holder on the tube.

I think it is supposed to be mounted 5-7cm(I think) toward the front (epoxy)
You can make sure your TT is not bent, and you have pulled the boom out 2-3mm from fully seated. Just a couple things to check.

Sorry not a 600N flier, but I bet you will find the answer in the Align 600N forum ;
