HINTS & TIPS - Stopping binding of the tail control on a Belt CP

The tail control mechanism on the Belt CP V1 is frankly not the best of designs, and can bind quite easily, so here are a couple of things you can do to try to minimize this.

First, move the rudder control so that the tail blades hub moves INWARDS TOWARDS the aircraft, and then rotate them slowly. You will almost certainly see that the screws on the links to the tail blade holders are hitting the hub.  You need to use a small file or Dremel to remove a little bit of material off the hub to stop these screws from touching.

Second, check whether the tail drive shaft that passes through the tail hub etc is not recessed inside the blade holder hub.  This is locked in position on a flat section of the shaft, and for optimum performance, you need to ensure that the tail blades hub is pulled OUTWARDS as far as possible.  To do so, just loosen the grub screw that locks the hub to the shaft (not too much) and them pull and push along the shaft to make sure it is sliding in and out a little bit.  Then pull it as far outwards as you can and relock it in that position.

This will also help the binding mentioned above.
