Ok, Technex & i recently gave my Logo 500 a bit of a clean on the tail shaft. It was getting quite gunky causing some stiffness in the tail & so we (well he) cleaned the tail shaft & the brass sleeve in the slider. That then was smooth but then we could feel stiffness in the ball links on the tail blades. Before i go about reaming out the links i wanted to know how tight your balls were on your Logo's, are they silky smooth or is there a little stiffness when trying to move the pitch slider (removed from the control rod) by hand. And did you ream out the links?

Mine feel smooth and i did not ream them, if its new links can be tight but they wear in quick.

I prefer not to ream links unless i really have to

I do not EVER ream the Mikado links and suggest not to as they wear in nicely and there is no need. Winter time my balls get tight.

Amazing how the "balls" threads always turn into a comedy show , think this is a mainly "mans" forum? LOL
