Tail pitch control lever broke today on the maiden flight, just a few minutes in and it broke and the landing gear broke on landing could have been worse

is the pivot bolt correctly assembled? any incorrect/missing spacers/shims, did you use the correct bolt?
is the blade holder bearings correctly assemnled, the correct spacers/shims used? are the blade holder free to move,even when pulled outwards to simulate load on them?
is the pitch slide free to move on the output shaft?
is the assemble binding?
was the tail knocked in transit?
are you over driving the tail with the servo travel?

you need to check the above before fitting a new lever
