Hey Guys,

Need some advise, just the other day I dumped the 360CFX noise in first. I replaced the blades, canopy, canopy standoffs, main gear, main shaft, feathering shaft. Everything else seemed to be ok. However, I do have a concern because the swash doesn't seem to be leveled at stock settings, and the maingear is fluctuating up-and-down while rotating. I have included a video for your viewing please take a look and chime in at your convenience.

You definitely want to level the swashplate.

Did one of your servo arms skip a tooth, or are any of the servo gears stripped?

For the maingear, it doesn't look too excessive, did you get the mainshaft spacer back in when you put it back together? The thin washer at the top of the diagram.

If your servo arm did "skip" a tooth , there's a good chance the arm itself may be split at the spline....

Also, your main gear "wobble" to me looks like the gear itself is warped or your main shaft may be slightly bent..... what I see in the video is definitely not "normal".....

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....
