Precision tail control and authority is critical for high-performance flight and KDE Direct is proud to release the new KDE Direct TREX 550/600 Performance Tail Control system. The new assembly is the ultimate, slop-free control system available on the market and is the perfect compliment to the continually advancing, high-accuracy gyros and flybarless systems. Dual-radial ball bearings provide extremely smooth, near-frictionless control mechanics throughout that is truly noticeable in flight and further advances the flight performance capabilities of F3C and Hardcore-3D pilots alike.

Save $0.95 when you purchase the Performance Tail Control with the Performance Tail Upgrade.

Note: the KDE Direct TREX 550/600 Series Performance Tail Control assembly is the ultimate, slop-free control system available on the market to provide precise tail control and authority. Add the KDE Direct TREX 550/600/700 Series Performance Tail Upgrade V2 to the system and you now have a complete, dual-radial ball bearing supported assembly throughout for the ultimate flight characteristics. With the mechanics of the dual-fork supported tail slider, there is no worry of abnormal wear or torque loads on the tail shaft slider for a continuously smooth, failure-free operation even under the hardest and most extreme flying conditions.

Important: due to the precision CNC-machining of each component, correct installation is key for proper, bind-free operation. Please pay attention to the Installation Instructions, take your time during the install, and make sure to apply medium-strength Loctite (Blue 243 or equivalent) to all screws during assembly. Once fully-installed, a significant reduction in slop throughout the tail mechanics will be clearly evident on the bench and in actual flight.
