Managed to maiden the black nitro today! Had a minute in the air before the tail gave out and had to hit throttle hold. Luckily the tail jammed up but I still managed to panic and it came down on the wonk on landing. Looks like I forgot to loctite the tail control pivot screw, so out it came in flight. The tail blades managed to hit the control rod as it was flapping about. Lost most of the assembly but managed to find a few bits. Had 4 flights on the 700 Comp after and lost a bit of confidence so nothing special. Thanks to Dean for all the help at the field.
