What's the best method to stop thes from sliding. I'm sure CA would work, any better ideas?

Thanks guys!

I wasn't to sure about the kit supplied zip tie under the ring method but tried it because other guys at the field had used them and said it worked. I'm now using the zip tie method for all my helis, it works that well.

The trick is to leave the thin end of the zip tie on then slide the ring over it. If you pull the zip tie up near the end before cutting it off you can use the same zip tie for more than one ring. Use a pair of wire cutters to clip the zip tie so you don't nick the boom.

It tells you in the factory manual, and so far is the best way.
You are supposed to wedge a zip tie in under the top of each guide.

I tried using epoxy, it worked, but was not ideal.

Zip ties are a bit of a PITA to put in, but they work very well.

For the love of the hobby

Also I found it's really worth putting a 4th guide on, really supports the push rod better.

To get them in , first push a very small screw driver though about the same size as the zip tie , this then makes getting the zip tie through much easier.

I used to CA them also but the zip tie method is awsome and there easily removed if you put her in.

Something not included in every Trex assembly instructions, but common to all. Bottom half of the page. A shot of CA to follow up locks it down tight.

No screwdriver needed, just make sure you put the zip tie with the teeth down, toward the boom, pinch the push rod guide a bit the zip tie slides right under it.

Then take your X-acto knife and trim the excess zip tie, that's it. You can also move the guide up and down the boom and twist it around the boom and it will stay where you leave it.

Works great.

I wouldn't use the razor blade to cut them, nicks the boom. Use some wire clippers and careful not to hit the point on the boom. Not that the scratches bother me much but if they can be avoided... I didn't need the screw driver either, just put it teeth down as said above with the thin end and slide it over.

For years I used a drop of CA to hold each ring. However once moving to Nitro the fuel would eat away the CA after a while and the rings would come loose. Since then I've moved to what the manual suggests, small zip tie under them. Must say it works perfect, holds then tight, and it nitro fuel proof. Use a Xacto to trim the zip tie on each side of the ring.

If you are super anal, there is an answer. Lynx is coming out with alum rings that clamp to the boom.
