OK - most know of the tail slider modification using fuel tubing to take out the play.

Well be careful - I did it and ended up with damaged ball link threads and had to repair / remove the tubing.

But I found a good use of tubing in another area :

Canopy retention pins on the Trex frame ... over time the grommets get loose, maybe you lose one ... canopy hole gets enlarged and slides over pin too far ... touches main gear.
Cure ? Short length of tubing over the pin to stop canopy sliding on too far ....

Not for nothing... But I'd move the ball on the elev servo to the other side side of the horn. It'll give the rod a straiter shot to the swash.

You know - I never noticed !! I just rebuilt / fitted as per the 'out of box' but probably that's my fault ... everyone talks of the ball link being on INSIDE of arm - I probably never realised ... I was fitting wrong on that one !! Embarassed

Oh - dear that's another afternoon resetting link lengths !! Rolling Eyes

Well spotted and many thanks !! Very Happy
