I'm not a hardcore 3D pilot, but I'm wondering about the longevity of the tail control rod, having only a single guide. Has anyone had any control rod failures due to the single guide?

If I could get one that wasn't broken from the kit or package, I would be a happy camper

No issues after many many flights. Same with the 700.

It will be fine. I've seen Fil Lowe fly his for a couple of months and no wear at all.

Thanks for the replies. I was more concerned about it breaking, but sounds like all is well
Trexn8, you've had worse luck than I did with my kit. Apparently you're not flying yet?

Yes I have had the worst luck with this kit for some reason

Not a super big deal, guess I just wanted to vent a little

Gonna probably be another week before I can even get a rod…

Seriously would have been flying this thing over a month ago if I didn't have such bad "luck"

Do you just need the cf rod? If so, send me a pm and I'll send you one.

Perfect condition carbon rod received from captrip, thank you

The rod was packed well and supported so I did not receive a broken "new" part. Pay attention RH

Thanks again, this is a great community
