If your blades are just over horizontal to the boom, you won't see the mechanical interference until you turn the blades, but they will go over centre like you say. Poor design imho!
There should be maybe something like a shoulder out from the casing, or a bush, to stop this happening. When I took mine out of the box and span the blades by hand, I felt something rattle but couldn't see what caused it because the slider had re-centered and the links were still attached.
When I set the tail up for full travel with no bind either end, I still never spotted the problem untill I gave it full right stick on the floor and the links flew off
