Comparison of V1 to V2 Tail
Hey boys

Made a video comparing the two tails. The V2 is MUCH better in my opinion, I can't wait to get this baby rigged up to fly

Watch at YouTube

I have the SE version which has the bearings, but I'm sure the bushing versions are just as good.

Wow, thanks Nathaniel! Great vid! My V1 tail had even more slop than that, no wonder why it didn't fly well.

That V2 tail looks rock solid, I wonder if the bushing versions are as good. Anyway when back in stock I will try them out, hopefully I'm not wasting my money on the bushes.

Thanks again for the vid!

make sure you use green locktite to assemble the brass bushings onto the pitch links

I think either version should be great. Speaking of green loctite, also be sure to the green loctite the nut on the end of the tail output shaft.

What about the upgraded pitch sliders:

i) MicroHeli Precision CNC Tail Pitch Slider 18.99
ii) Gaui G-203598 CNC double-joint tail slider set 13.50

Is it worth upgrading to either of these?

Gravity Works...no, the other left. ok,ok

Do you have a V1 or a V2? I can't comment on the Microheli part but the Gaui part is the slider that is used with the v2 tail system...if you have a v1 you'll need a lot more than that to make it a v2 tail.

If you have the v2, I think the gaui 203598 is already installed on your tail?

While this is a good idea, the tail hub will spin onto the tail shaft and not off so you are in no danger of losing the tail hub.

True enough, but I was forewarned and thought I'd pass it on Apparently it has happened...

Just quickly guys, Readyheli don't have the metal CNC slider in stock, shall I just stick with the plastic one? I've seen some really hard flying with the stock plastic one and the V2 tail, so I guess it's good?


203665 CNC Aluminum Tail Gear Case With Double Joint Tail Slider (Shaft Drive)

203598 CNC Double Joints Tail Slider Set (W/Double Bearings)

203596 CNC Tail Pitch Link Set

203632 CNC Universal Battery Plate (also went for this, give it a shot I guess!)

Look okay?

the micro heli bell crank is made for the V2 watch this video. the plastic slider works ok, just make sure you check it after a crash.

another nice video...
I have a question...
the screws that go into the double tail slider...
should you use locktite on these ...
when I try to tighten them down, the slider doesn't move well and the tail wags...
if I leave them loose, everything is good...
and ideas?
the other two screws going into the tail grips seem fine, with alittle locktite...

it's confusing, because it's all soooo small, what can, and what cannot be locktite!

Gravity Works...no, the other left. ok,ok

Thanks rotorhead.

Loctite everything metal to metal. Nothing in plastic mind you.

Blue or purple loctite, red is crazily overkill.

I use purple loctite (low strength on both my 450's, my 200 and my nitro Truggy's, works fine...) I am also using medium strength blue on any important areas such as feathering shaft screws or tail grip screws.

i use blue on most metal to metal. i use red on the tiny screws you can not tighten too much, like the mixer to grips, and the tail pitch links

and what about the tail grips...
they can slide up and down the shaft...
even when I get all the screws tight in place,
this ability for the tail grips to slide on the shaft...
it seems like it may cause slop...
does it?

Gravity Works...no, the other left. ok,ok

Perfectly normal, slop will never be created like this, the amount of force pulling them out is immense, they will not have the chance to move when spun up, same with main blade grips.
