Default Condor tail Boom

Any one had trouble with the condor boom fitted into the preadator boom mounts? my boom still moves no matter how tight i get it ! the only thing that stops it twisting is the cutout in the boom i hovered my turbine today for the first time what a heli ! just need to sort the hover and throttle curves now

ive done the conversion with no probs try 2 turns masking tape cut out the lock ing bit that
stops the tail from rotating

Yes the masking tape is what I've done too. The new Century kits seem to have fixed this little irritation. 2 sets of boom supports are the order of the day with the Condor tail Mini, or else your tail may vibe a little.
