Hi there fellas.
I'm pretty newbie and living in Norway over seas.

How do i mount this brass slider which is screwed into the aluminum control yoke of the tail pitch control unit?
I have a zap400 v2 and it suddently unscrewed under a hovering excersise.

Exsample pictures of the simular problem can be viewed here:

i don't recell the stock slider having threads. if i remember right, the innner race of the pitch slider bearing is a press fit over the plastic slider itself which has a brass bushing installed between the plastic slider and tailshaft. apply some ca and press it back in place being careful not to get ca on the moving parts.

hueyman: Hi there and thanx for your answer. The brass bushing did have some threads, but it was impossible to screw it back on, so i took some locktite and applied it to the brass and slided the parts together and added some more locktite to the yoke part, making sure i didn't spill any glue on the shaft. This worked perfectly ;-)
