Removing locktited Tail hub for tail repairs

Removing locktited Tail hub for tail repairs

As shown in this build log, I use a glob of thread lock all inside the tail rotor hub to secure the tail rotor. I have had them come off even with the key mark. So i apply thread lock to the tail shaft and then install the hub. This will make the tail rotor hub nearly glued to the shaft. The problem with this is when it comes to having to do maintenance or repairs to the tail shaft, steering slider or other parts. It will be nearly impossible to just yank the tail hub off. So this is how i remove mine using a Walkera pinion/gear puller.




This is what it looks like on the shaft after removal:
