Hi guys:

What metal washout base do you recommend to replace the stock unit? I installed the Rick's one and now it's sloppy. I know there're some brands.

Thank you very much.

Any brand should work just fine when compared to the plastic unit. I think I have the TT one. It was only 15 bucks and I don't have to worry about stripping it like I did the plastic one, plus you can use loctite to hold the screws in tight.

David,

The one you got from Rick's, wasn't that a Quick UK or some other brand.

I also heard the QUK parts are supposed to be pretty good.

The quick UK one is pretty cool. I've ran one for 12 months and no slop yet

I have the Quick one, not had too much use, maybe about 6 months & it has worn quite bad where the anti rotation pins run thru & needs changing very soon.

However on closer inspection it looks like the pins are pitted, so they are actually sawing their way thru, I cant understand why they are pitted they get lubed every time I fly.

Anyone had a similar problem.

The one from Rick's is one from brand X. I'm sure it isn't the one from Quick.

Wao, 10 gallons of use without any slop development is good for the Quick one.

Nice but I just want the base.

If I recall properly, the one I bought from Rick's was a bit sloppy when new. Can anyone confirm that?

Thank you very much.

I got this one:

Geoffrey Woodward from Australia makes them, I got his email adress from Raptortechnique... I have been using this unit for year now and still very much slop free, I also like that it`s a bit longer that the standard ones.

Look here @ Raptortechnique (scroll down...)

Cheers,

Rich

This is the one I saw from Rick's

Washout assembly

It's the whole assembly, not just the base.

That looks awesome. But it's an expensive bling, specially for the arms. The whole assembly could be ruined in a crash.

Thanks for mentioning Geoff Woodwards washout base!! I've used plastic, QuickUK and Geoff's, and last-mentioned has remained slop-free the longest. Perhaps the slightly longer shank makes the difference. Doesn't bind at all, even at max cyclic and collective.

I don't think Geoff makes them anymore. I e-mailed him a while ago and he said he was out of the heli parts making biz. Let me know if any of you know differently.

A pity, but can't blame him: each piece is made individually, and must be quite labour-intensive.
