Default Almost done- Too much throw in the tail!

I have my 380 almost set up, everything 100/100 in the Brain software.....but the tail blades have so much throw they hit the boom. What is the correct way to limit tail so it doesn't hit the boom? I moved the servo linkage closer to the servo and that didn't help.

Are you talking about the slider hits or the blades. If the blades are hitting you have some serious mechanical setup problems.

Tail blades can hit the boom if they're folded. Not a problem when they're straightened out. Is that what you mean? Dan

Ah yes, they were folded. I'll double check them straightened out. Thanks!

**Yep, that was it. I'm an idiot **

I was gonna ask if they were folded but figured I might be insulting you. Lol. Sometimes I guess we just need to step back and take a deep breath.
