Default Sticky tail servo pushrod movement?

Hey, I assembled a trex 450 clone, the tarot 450, and i'm wondering if the moving the tail pushrod by hand is supposed to be a little sticky. What i mean, is like when i try moving the tail's collective with my hand, it is somewhat stiff. Is this how it is supposed to be, Or should i put some lubricant? I did add some and its a little better, but still does not move freely.


Thanks

Jason

My thinking is that is should be fairly smooth. Nothing tight. I'm finishing a Trex 450 Sport and it is smooth. It is also smooth on my 3 other HK 450's.  Maybe you have a screw too tight?

hm, i'll look into it. I was wondering becuase i think the servo got stuck midflight as i couldn't turn the helicopter to the right. I know it wasn't the gyro or anything so i'm pretty sure it was the servo and it may have gotten stuck etc...
