Default Pro tail upgrade

I'm tired of the slop and vibes I get out of the standard tail on my FBL 500e, so I'm thinking about upgrading to the pro style tail.

My question is what goes between the tail grips and tail pitch assembly? In other words what do the tail blade grips connect to? I can't tell from any photos I've been able to dig up. Is it the normal pitch slider?

In photos:

What goes between this:



And this:



Is it this?



If so I guess I'm just not understanding how thit will connect to the tail pitch assembly above.

Ok, I actually just figured it out. Can I use my existing pitch slider to connect from the grips to the new tail mechanism? Or do I have to get the pro version?

The H50190 tail upgrade you posted above, is suppose to come with the longer 15.7mm slider bushing. The old esp slider bushing with the plastic bearing holder, is too short at 15.2mm.

The H50189 Pro upgrade does not come with the 15.7mm slider bushing, because the Pro already has the longer bushing.

If the H50190 upgrade does not have the 15.7mm slider bushing included, the you need to get one of these bushings

I bought a complete tail rotor upgrade, which did come with 15.7mm slider bushing.....

Here's the one I was looking at:

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Pitch-Assembly

Looks like it has the 15.7 slider shaft.

Thanks, for the heads up, it's these little things that can get you. This is why this is such a great place!

No problem, you can use the exsisting "T" arm and links....

It does take much of the slop out but it didn't do anything for my vibes.
