Rafael23cc: its a trex 450 pro.
Thanks for the clarification on Brand and model, but that is not the point of the discussion. The discussion was started about a general warning (brand-less) regarding the pitch slider. When suggestions started flowing, a question about one of the suggestions arose, and I'm trying to keep the suggestions general and brand-less.

That's all. Hope nobody gets their undies in a twist over this one. I'm notorious for doing that.

Bottom line...fly what you like and deal with the issues as you go. I did this with my 700. I investigated the problems, bought what was needed to solve the issues and moved on.

The point to all of this is maintenance, maintenance, maintenance. you need to inpect you heli often, otherwise Newton's law will happen.

P.S. This post makes my 1000th... I am now a Key Veteran.

Way Cool

That is true and since we do not have maintenance manuals, it is good to share findings that some may have not noticed before. I've been into heli's for over 3 years now and this is the first time I have seen this problem. Until reently never knew to look for it and it bit me good. The litle unknown things can be just as critical in aviation maintenance. In fact I just watched a show on the Discovery channel call Fire in the Sky. A lot of deaths happened because something small and unknown started the problem.

Absolutely, there is no substitute when it comes to that, and part of it can lead to common sense. For most we talk about that but don't really know where or what to look for. For some the manual can be an issue like Solmanbandit said. This forum is great and definitely do help people on varieties of issues. Accident will happen and will continue to happen, a good maintenance plan will reduce mechanical failure to bare minimum. Back to the main subject, I always used blue lock tie, I don't recall having an issue with tail pitch slider after over 2,000 flights on all my machines combine. But I did have some failure for not using lock tie at all.
