I hope that MicroHeli tail slider works better for you than it did for me. I had to return the POS because the hole in the slider bearing, that the tail shaft inserts into, was just a hair too big. This caused extreme binding! I returned it. The KDE links that I got did the same thing when I first got them. They would bind if I tightened them too much. Then I tried to overtighten them and then backed them off. After doing that they seemed to "seat" or something. Then I was able to tighten the screws down with no binding. I really don't know what happened, but they've been fine for months and dozens of flights now with no binding at all.
