The tail shaft is about 32mm long and no more than 1mm in diameter. I am almost unable to bend it with my bare fingers. Its hard, real hard, and bent. How on earth does an 80g object bend something that hard?!
Crashed into an electrical box in a carpark on Sunday. Lost a single linkage from the head. Upon further inspection I found that the tail shaft was also bent, I suspect this has been the case for quite some time though.
Having flown the helicopter I one again noticed that I’d broken the fixes from last time and the time before. This time I have chosen to use milk bottle plastic for the repair. It would seem to be more pliable and possibly less prone to snapping. A little more plastic than the other plastic..
