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