ML400/500/600-PTC
Performance Tail Control for Mikado™ LOGO® 400/500/600 SX/SE Series Helicopters

  • $88.95

Overview

The KDE Direct Performance Tail Control assembly is the ultimate, slop-free control system available on the market to provide precise tail control and authority. The assembly utilizes the KDE Direct T-Rex 550/600 Series Performance Tail Control, KDE Direct T-Rex 550/600/700/800 Series Performance Tail Upgrade V2, and a custom Design Adapter (replacement available, ML400/500/600-PTCDA) to produce a complete, dual-radial ball bearing supported assembly throughout for the ultimate flight characteristics. With the mechanics of the dual-fork supported tail slider, there is no worry of abnormal wear or torque loads on the tail shaft slider for a continuously smooth, failure-free operation even under the hardest and most extreme flying conditions.

Important: Due to the precision CNC-machining of each component, correct installation is key for proper, bind-free operation. Please pay attention to the installation instructions, take your time during the install, and make sure to apply medium-strength Loctite (Blue 243 or equivalent) to all screws during assembly. Once fully-installed, a significant reduction in slop throughout the tail mechanics will be clearly evident on the bench and in actual flight.

Specifications

Material: Aluminum 6061-T6, BRONZE SAE 660

Models: All Mikado™ LOGO® 400, 500, and 600 series helicopters with the carbon-tail case.
