I just discover there are lots of play on the elevator arm. I can hold the antirotation pin and move the elevator arm by +/- 20 degree.

Does anyone of you have this problem?

+/- 20 degrees is 5 degrees more on each end of the total pitch!

If the movement is from the elevator lever rod, then it might be the set screw on the elevator control arm is not in the elevator lever rod hole.

thats really the only place it can come from. You may have missed the flat on the rod for the setscrew when tightening it

Yes, the set screw is loosened. I am glad that I spot it during regular check.

Are you people using Blue Loctite on that set screw?

I've come to believe that most varieties of blue threadlocker are useless. It almost requires a primer to grip well. I switched over to Vibratite Wicking Green for most locations. But have now also learned that the red 242 product which Thunder Tiger includes in kits is excellent as well. It's not permanent like some red's. Alcohol cleaning seems sufficient for a good bond.

I've always used the red TT 242 with good results. Thought everybody did. Never have broken any screws or had any vibe loose.
