Check your tail isn't bent?
Standby, man I hope the damn tail isn't bent.

Edit: The tail does not appear to be bent at all. If anything, maybe the base it slides into is just slightly off?!? The camera is dead and I have yet to try and post a pic on this forum...(Do you guys just use Photobucket and figure-out which link works?)

I set the heli flat on the shelf and slid the tail off the edge so it would sit flat on the skids. Then I took a straight edge and measured the distance from the top of the shelf/bottom of the straight edge to the bottom of the VS. (With calipers) It seems the tail is .210" or 5.56mm to long. *shrugs* I guess I could grind this down..I don't know, it would be awful close to the first hole just to get it all touching the ground at the same time.
