TIPS on Tail Failure:

I just recently learned to use Locktite Blue on all "metal to metal" bolts, pins, and screws. Another Heli pal told me to locktite everything before you fly a new heli the first time. He was right!

This is what happens when a screw backs-out of the tail blade holder...

The tail blade and grip came off the hub and hit the main rotors. After new set of blades and a new hub, we were back in the air!
