I also installed the new tail pitch slider and started to work on the rudder pushrod. My wire pushrod is still fine but I'm switching over to the CF rod since its apart.

I had the CF on my v1 until the first crash, it works great but I did once have the JBWeld loosen up. So this time no fooling around, I used hysol

(BTW, Ive used JBWeld on CF airplane pushrods forever without a single failure - some of those have lasted over 10 years. I think its just the higher freq vibes on the heli that caused an issue)

Shop time so far: 15+ hr
