Heres the issue i see with it yea it may work but at what cost tail weight. If i remember correctly DAvid K and the 7hv test team was testing a metal one and then elected to go to the plastic probably cause of weight. it may not seem alot but when its at the farthest point out on a heli thats were your gonna see a few grams or ounces make a difference.Team Compass Models, Team Hitec and KBDD

tail
I would venture to say it was cost and production.it is so much faster to do injection mold vs cnc each part....the cost of aluminum is up there also....I just did this for fun.eric b testing tail out of metal.I bet there's not much diff.[S]

Eric brandenburg was actually flying metal tail grips. And the metal ones he used were the ones compass made for the old knight series. The 7hv,6hv,3dplus and the old knight series use the same tail hub and tail grips. I was talking about your pieace you made.Team Compass Models, Team Hitec and KBDD

Pretty tail, great work Raptormandan! I still see no prob with the stock plastic tail. The Vibe.90SG has one simiular to the 7HV. I haven't heard of any problems with it? So I'm leaving mine stock but If I change my mind I will be using your thread! Awesome Job Raptormandan!!!Quit crying about your airplane and fly already!!!

Ok, I spoke to soon, I'm having a tail shutter. I can't get rid of it's really pissing me off! I just got to messing around with my 7Hv stock tail grips and I can move them both in and outward. Not side to side I don't know if this is the cause of my tail shutter all I can say is I don't think it's a tail gain issue so far it only does it in a fast tail down funnel. UGH! I spoke to soon should have kept my mouth shut!Quit crying about your airplane and fly already!!!

Hi Weaselbean,

it's normal with all size of Compasstailgrips that you can move them a little outwards. It has no effect on the tail because once they move the grips go outwards due to the centrifugal force applied to them.

Did you size all the links well on the tailsection ?

Grtz,
Dirk

No matter how you slice it the 7hv came with sub par tail design, Compass should release a new tail design for existing 7HV owners.
