DIY Dual arm tail pitch slider
Hello every one, this is my 1st post here and want to share something I created.

After about 80 or so flights on my ALZC 450 TT pro FBL the tail pitch developed too much slop. So I put on my thinking hat on and using the existing slider parts just added a pin and make a second arm. so far after about 30 flights it is still slop free.

Have a look

Nice idea, I'll have to try that. I have a whole bag of sloppy tail pitch sliders and other tail parts... Thanks!

Didn't Align make the same thing?

Sure, you can buy something for about $10 or so.

Cost of materials used in the DIY: 50 cents

Personal satisfaction gained from building something that works with your own hands: priceless

Nice work, I love DIY mods.

For me though ive never had an Align tail that was so sloppy that it affected flight, even on a 250.

Bit like carbon tail pushrods or DFC heads, bit of a gimmick.
60% of the time, it works every time!
