its for a hex screw..put one in and run it down till it touches the boom..that makes continuity from the mount to the boom.

What does that do over and above the connection already in place from the idler gear to the boom?

Not saying I won't do it but can't see what it is adding from an anti-static point of view unless I can remove the wire altogether.

I will measure the resistance of the carbon and see what sought of continuity I am getting.

EDIT: It looks like I can remove the wire and put a screw in the tail mount. Only problem then is the hole already in the boom but an option for the future when a new boom is called for.

with the new metal tail mount, you don't need the wire in the back. as long as you have continuity from the mount to the boom.

I ordered (back ordered) one for my 550sx. Since the flange bearings mount in the fins which look like G10, I'm guessing I still need to use it. Since I already have it hooked up, it won't hurt. I'm just hoping that it helps with the box alignment.

I checked the measurement at the top and bottom at the front of the mount and needed to make a small adjustment to get them equal, so do check yours and do the screws up a bit at a time.

Unfortunately the spaces that go either side of the idler gear are just a fraction short and pull the frame in. Not by much but it is an error. Fortunately it uses a nylock nut so it can be left a fraction loose. Unfortunately it holds the anti-static wire so it needs to be done up tight enough to hold it.

I spun the model up on the bench with the tail blades and no mains and the analyser in the vbc showed just 22 which was only 3 or 4 points higher when I didn't have the tail hub on.

I am very happy with the Rotor Tech blades.

Can someone please post a detailed picture of their new metal tail clamp installed. Also is pinning the tail recommended? How would belt adjustment be accomplished with pinned tail in the future? thanks

I don't think there is any need to pin or insert a screw in the threaded hole you can see on the side.

There is no magic as this just replaces the 2 plastic halves.

The only thing required is to do the front 2 bolts up to get an even measurement top and bottom.

I threaded a hex into the hole so there was continuity from the metal mount to the boom and did away with the wire at the tail. I think that's how the lynx tail and the hawkrc mount works too. I have all 3.

I assume the aluminum is heavier than the plastic?

On my cheap gram scale the 22mm mount is 16.4grams, the two piece plastic is 8.6 grams.

The 25mm mount is 16 g and the plastic is 8 grams.
