The thought crossed my mind having the pin eject and doing some blur piro's into the ground.
Hmm that makes more sense than what I did. The slider has more surface area to hold the pins than the forks. Also I could ca it in there better. Maybe I should have 2 sliders just in case.

Finally getting around to working on it today. I just checked the tail slider. The ca has hardened, the pins are stuck in the forks real good and the slider still slides nicely.

Just to be clear, when I said the pins were loose I just meant looser than originally. they couldnt just slide out or anything. I only opened the hole of the inner part. The outer fork holes I left alone.

Should I still replace it?

Looks good dude, love the cat photobomb

It's hard to say without witnessing what you did to give advice. If it was me I'd replace it, especially over a 12 dollar part

Thanks. Yeah I probably will replace it since I ordered a new one already. So it's ok if there's a little resistance there initially?

Here's an update for today. This is a long one.

MSH servo arms match the servos. Cool.



Did I mention this is my first 700? I need a longer table.




Servos installed. I was going to go without the rubber grommets but after trying it both ways, I put them on because I didn't like fiddling with the servos to keep them lined up right. I cranked them down pretty hard so they feel pretty much as solid as hard mounted anyway.






Assembling and installing the main grips.






Washout arms. Oh look, another plastic fork and pin. Don't worry, I resisted the urge to do any modification.






Assembled head, except links:




That's where I decided to stop for today. Almost done (with the build part anyway).

Why do some servo horn adapters have slots in them and some don't? Most of the pics I see of them seem to be without slots, yet look them up as a spare part and they have a slot in them.

Keep the pics coming...

I'm not sure. This is my first experience with them. I assume the ones with slots are servo savers and the other kind are not, or maybe break-away type. I really don't know.

I'm not quite sure what you guys mean.

The ones in the max v2, are the ones with slots.
Its just how they work. First you attach the center hub to the servo splines. Then you attach the servo arm, and use the screw to fix them, to the center hub, so the slot is there to be able to fasten then.

Maybe the the pictures you saw where not using the included servo adapters, for example mks x8 servos need to use their own because the kit ones do not fit.

The centre hub in ultrataco's pics have no slot, like in most of the pics I see posted. Mine have a slot. Look them up as a spare part and they are shown with slots. I was wondering why. I guess the design was changed sometime.

They are referred to as 'servo horn adapters' in the manual, so that is what I called them, to avoid confusion, which seems to have confused everyone lol. Center hub or round bit in the middle might have been a better choice lol

Anyway, there appears to be two styles, without slot and with slot. I guess with slot is prolly a v2 version?

heh I just read "slots" and assumed the arms. My Monday morning reading comprehension is not so great. I'm not sure what the slot would be for on that inner part.

As mentioned earlier in the thread, I apparently have an older tail fin so it's possible I have other older parts, too. That would be odd since I just ordered mine from the most recent batch a week ago. Oh well. I don't mind.

I can't wait to get back home and work on it.

My kit also had the solid fin using 3rd bolt.. I also had the washout arms pre-assembled.. My first kit also included Gorilla gear...second one didn't. Must depend on who packed the kit and to what extent some items were assembled..

This sure makes turning links easier.




links installed




Batteries partially mounted. When I have a better idea of where cg should be, I have some 3M industrial velcro to stick onto the trays.




ESC: Hobbywing 160, the first thing I bought for this build a few months ago.




I soldered on bullets for the motor a while ago, soon after I got it.




Now this is the part I'm most unsure about in the whole build. Hooking up the ESC/battery wiring. It also seems like it may be tricky to hook up the motor wires. They are going to have to bend pretty good. and I have to keep it all away from the motor. Also, I need to buy some tape to stick on the esc.




This is how I want to hook up the batteries.

Using zipties for now. Not sure I trust it enough to fly like this though.
