Default tail rotor noise- squeaking

I've finally got my Corona flying nicely, but there is an annoying squeal coming from the tail. The tail rotor shaft spins around the push-pull rod for some nice metal-on-metal action and I'm certain this is the source of the noise. I tried silicone spray lube, but the noise remains.

I used graphite on mine.

If it's in the bearings then there's no hope.

same thing happened to me, all I did was take some LMH litelube and put it in that area and all over the rest of the areas where the noise could be coming from. It went away right after I applied the lube.
