Upgrade for Raptor 60 tail pitch slider

A few days ago a friend of mine in my flying club had a serious crash
with his Raptor 60. The crash was due to a tail loss (it suddenly
started pirouetting). The after crash investigation showed a broken
tail pitch slider which must preceded the crash.
Since we've heard of a couple of similar crashes of that heli, we are
looking for a metal replacement of the possibly faulty tail pitch
slider.

Thanks in advance for any info

Hi Michael... I'm new to RC helicopters and I don't know what =
pirouetting means? Is this the same as spinning? Thanks in advance.

Yes it is spinning round the main shaft.

Re: Upgrade for Raptor 60 tail pitch slider

Bill,

pirouetting is a rather sweet and spectacular movement of a helicopter
rotating around its main rotor shaft but which , when it's done
without pilot's control, it becomes an extremely scary situation with
the disaster being very close.

It can also be an extremely scary situation with some pilots 'controlling'
it :-)
