Default how much slip should the tail gear be?

Hi,

I have just finished the assembly of my 120 and noticed that the tail gear can slip if the tail blades are obstructed. Is this normal and how tight of a fit should the tail gear be? If the slip is too much, will it affect the tail authority?

Default RE: how much slip should the tail gear be?

You should have no slipping. It's ok for the TR blades to have a little bit of spring to them because of the wire flexing. They shouldn't slip though. It will adversely affect yaw authority.
