So I installed a metal pitch plate on my TR600. In less than 3 mins of flight the interior threaded sleeve had unscrewed its self, resulting in loss of tail control.

So what are you guys doing to prevent this, Locktite?

Loctite on engine parts is like Ketchup on a hot dog, it doesn't belong and it won't stay there for very long.

use red locktite on that sombitch! just clean threads with alcohol, and use locktite sparingly. do not get anywhere except threads.

a good cleaning, a drop of locktite, plus ample drying time goes a long way. using this method, blue locktite should even be more than fine.

As to the OP...My 700 slider came aprt like that too and I put it back together with blue Locktite and it has held for several gallons now.

My general rule of thumb when building models is to throw away any screw lock supplied with the kit. I then use Loctite 221 or 222 on any metal to metal part which needs to come apart again. I use Loctite 648 on any metal to metal part which never needs to come apart (It needs a blow torch to separate) All thread-lockers need to cure for 24 hours to reach maximum strength unless an activator/primer is used which speeds things up at the expense of joint strength. Check out the data-sheets on the loctite website.

I don't think having a double control arm (which I've never read a single good thing about) is going to help keep the slider bushing in place.

Align should be forced to put a warning label on their parts that the required thread-locking compound may or may not be applied.
