I am building one also. Tried to get the tail slider apart, apparently not enough heat as it broke where they are all breaking, factory installed too tight. New one on the way at no cost. In the mean time I tried a 600n Align tail slider, not happy with the way it works, If you use the outer holes in the shaft the slider will lock up. If you use the inner holes there is very little travel in the blades, so will not be using it. Everything else seems to be pretty good. Manual is off a little but common sense will get you by.
Can't wait to maiden it.

I just swapped the brass part for an Ely-Q slider. Cheap fix.

I filed down the brass bush at the end closest to the tail gearbox as it was a little thicker than the Gaui part. The two tail sliders are dimensionally exactly the same. I've read a few posts stating that Gaui will replace the part, but I had a spare in the box so just modded my own. My Vision 50 comp has been flying for over two years with the same slider with no problems.

Not sure why the formum is so quiet, but its an amazing little model which I'm really enjoying. Bit expensive in the UK which I think will hurt sales which is a shame.

Regards,

Simon

Yep, the only part I re-used was the bearing carrier. The cheapest Ely-Q part is all plastic though, so I would only use the brass sleeve if buying that part (very cheap).

The moulded arms on my Ely-Q tail slider seemed to be better moulded than the Gaui ones, but I might have got a bad set being in the first batch of kits.

Cheers,
Simon
