What good are tail boom braces?
Speaking about the Belt 250, I find that the screw (that tightens the bracket attaching the braces to the tail boom and guides the pushrod) cannot be tightened enough to keep the brace from sliding on the tail boom without clamping down on the tail rotor control pushrod, keeping it from moving. Also, the braces are too small in diameter to take much of a compression force and they are not attached in a manner to take a tension force. Therefore, are the braces just for looks?
