Default Tail Slider Position

I just got a Furion 450 supposedly RTF.

Major tail control problem on first flight. Can someone tell me if the slider is supposed to be centered on the drive shaft with rudder at neutral in rate mode?

The slider on mine is much closer to the tail shaft bearing and is not centered.


Thanks,

Jim

Should be centred, pitch arm at 90deg etc. If your tail is twitching around, look carefully at the hub and shaft to make sure nothing is bent.

Thanks Dauste,

My pitch arm IS 90 deg but the slider is way over towards the shaft bearing (left side as you look at it tail-on. Don't know what's going on but it must be the source of the tail problem.

I replied in your other thread. Download the manual from MA.

Thought I'd just check this out and if we are being pernickity, then I'd agree with you that there is less shaft showing on the tail case side. If yours is more than this, although I don't see how it could be, then you have a mechanical issue to resolve.
