hi,One issue on maiden flight. Tail is trembling. I've reduced gyro sensibility to 20 %. Better but not perfect at all. I've noticed that tail pushrod rubs against tailcase. Also, i have metal tail grip...
Any help ?
Regards

I just posted something on the other topic, but I will try and help you now.

First try to mount your boom supports on the frame and not the landing gear.

Second, make sure you align the Push rod guides exactly straight.

Give it a try and let us know. The rubbing on the tail case should be to little to none if you align everything right.

Hope this helps

Craig

if you have the stock plastic tail case, the bottom bolt that is by the tail control rod is too long. i took mine out, used a dremel and cut off wheel to cut it shorter as i noticed that it was rubbing against that bolt.

once cut, no longer an issue.

also try what craig said in regards to the boom supports mounted to the frame and not the rear skids.

i noticed today in regards to another post that alex mentioned the aluminum standoffs to put the boom supports on the frames instead of the skids. i went to a local hardware store and picked up some aluminum spacers that are 1/2" long, but when doing that, you will have to move the horizontal fin/boom clamp back further towards and tail.

with the stock length of the carbon boom supports, the horizontal fin is a little close to the tail blades then i would personally like to see, but should be okay. i would personally get new boom supports and make them about 2-3" shorter. by the weekend, ill have the exact length to cut the carbon rods to so as to keep it in the same position as before and post the results here.

one more thing too if you have the metal tail grips.

if your using the thrust bearings, make sure they are in the correct way.

if your using the angular bearings, dont use the instruction inster included with them, use the one on the elyq website. the insert that comes with the angular bearings is incorrect. it shows to put the angular bearing in first towards the hub, then the radial bearing (incorrect), needs to be radial then the angular bearing.

let us know how it works out
