I have to say, the head looks like the mod I did to my N5c. There are three holes on the head in the original design that allows you to adjust the height of the head, but the manual has no mention of this. So it's up to the builder to figure out the length of the linkages. I have always wondered why the those numbers are not published.

I could not tell from the picture, but is that the same head block or no?

The N5c TT Edition uses the E5 head which is even lower than the old head on the lowest setting. The grips are shorter so the disc size is slightly reduced which helps prevent loading the motor.

The boom has also been shortened 60mm (same as E5 stretch) for the torque tube version, resulting in a more compact airframe overall.

I sure do miss my old N5c. 2 things I disliked on that bird, the belt drive and the elevator shaft held in place with a tiny socket head screw. Other then that, she was a solid performer.

Has anyone ever used anything other than that set screw for the elevator shaft?

I drilled and tapped mine to M4 and used a shortened button head allen screw, I also ground the bottom of the screw as flat as possible and made the flat on the shaft bigger also. Hasn't moved since.

60% of the time, it works every time!

The N5c has always used a 4mm set screw for the elevator shaft. I haven't had any slipping issues since the change was made from the 3mm set screw on the N5.

I found that the elevator lever itself fatigued and the setscrew itself had stripped the threads and would no longer hold. Caught it before flight though thankfully.

Sorry I didn't realise that, mine is the old N5.

I was confused by this comment:

I guess he meant the N5 NOT the N5c.

There have been 3 N5 releases:

N5
N5c "Contender" (Major upgrade to the original)
N5cTT (Torque Tube, new head, etc)
