Default Tail Control Pitch Plate

Hi all,

Just building a Hawk 30 and the tail pitch control is tight and does not slide very easily. Anyone else have this issue? How did you loosen it up?
I initially thought it was the control rod, but after disconnecting it, the rod moves ok. Hooked up, I doubt the tail would be functional. I tried greasing it a bit and it helped somewhat, but still no luck making it smooth.

Any thoughts?

Had the same problem with my hawk pro, the supplied tail control rod had too much "flex" in it, upgraded to the carbon rod conversion, available from century, sorted it all out

You mean this?

Does that come with everything I would require?
Where is a good source to order from? Any good sources in Canada?
