Default Lynx stretch boom is way too loose on Nano S2

Usually the tail booms on the Nano CP S/S2 are friction fit. This is true for the stock Blade booms and the MicroHeli solid CF booms. Only in cases of crashes have I had to use hot glue or other adhesive to get the boom to stay in the tail motor mount and in the boom mount in the body.

But right now I’m in the process of installing the Lynx stretch boom onto my S2. Friction fit won’t work. The boom can easily rotate and come out of both the tail motor mount and the body boom mount.

Both the frame and the tail motor are brand new.

Have others had this problem with the Lynx stretch boom? Is mine defective? I’m thinking of squirting hot glue into the holes and pushing the boom in, but I’ve always had limited success with this method. And I’d rather not CA unless others say it’s removable afterward.

The Lynx boom is definitely thinner at the ends compared to the MicroHeli boom.

The diameter of the actual shafts are almost identical, but Lynx shaved off a little too much off of the ends when they made the flat parts of the D-shaped cross sections, if that makes any sense at all.

Too bad the MicroHeli booms aren’t stretched. Was hoping to get a bit more length in there.

MicroHeli boom is on the left. Lynx on the right.

Do others have this issue?



EDIT

Decided just to hot glue the booger in and heat shrink the tail motor end.





Of course I forgot to add shrink tubing to the frame end. Not my first time forgetting. Probably won’t be my last.



Fingers crossed for breakage-free first crashes.

nice idea ... my stock boom is loose now ... something is probably cracked but I can't see it. It stays during flight ... only moves if I have a rough landing ... can somewhat easily twist it while holding it. These solid booms probably last better don't they?

They do last longer. Over the winter when I was flying the CP S indoors and learning orientations, I’d break a stock boom one every 3 weeks probably. Never broke a MicroHeli solid CF boom. But the connections to the frame and tail motor mount did still break sometimes, so that never changed.

Outdoors is much more forgiving. Zero broken anything tail-related so far on the stock boom.

I have always CA glued the boom to the tail motor housing. On the opposite end where it connects to the frame, I usually put a small dab of black rubber silicone glue. It’s strong and keeps the boom secure and can be removed with some muscle if needed to put it into a new frame.

Black rubber silicone glue?

You know, if someone looks a my collection of adhesives they'd think I'm OCD about sticking objects together. The things we become experts in within the hobby is just silly.

Now you've just made it worse! Need to find some of that black rubber silicone glue.
