The oval links are binding on the blade grips on my 50V2 after rebuild from a crash. The spindle was bent, so that was replaced with a new part. Does anyone have any ideas why this could be? Thanks,

Thanks Tron, but no, I never even had to remove them, just replaced the spindle. At first I thought the spindle was shorter, but it appears the same length.

can you post a picture. the only thing i can think is that when you took off the blade grips (did you have to?) the oval link might have turned on you and ended upside down. I know you said they aren't. thats why the picture.

Thanks

I thank you all for responding. I found the problem just now...I put the washout on upside down, hence, the mixing arms were backwards! I can't believe I spent 2 nites working on this? Well, that is what I like about this "hobby". There is always more to learn.

Messing up mechanics is like crashing....either you have done it, or you WILL do it. At least you got it figured out...

Flying a heli is like seeing the Matrix, it is a mind bending experience.

Well I'll be honest and admit that I've also done that, took me ages to figure it out
