Before I fly my new ZAP, I'd like to add the screws to the swashplate. I followed the manual - removed the 3 cranks on the swashplate, then removed the 4 screws they picture (below the main gear). But, the main rotor head didn't pull out. I didn't pull too hard - didn't want to break anything. What am I doing wrong?

rod

The instructions say "pull the main rotor head assembly out, and then remove the pitch control rod"

I can't get the main rotor head out.

You dont need to remove the pitch rod to get the head off m8. Loosen the screws on the retaining collars at the top of the mast,below the main gear (2 on this) and at the bottom of the mast. Then loosen the set screw holding the pitch rod into the pitch mechanism and then remove the linkages attatched to the swashplate (elevator and aileron) the whole mast and head assembly should then come out (it may be a bit stiff just use gentle persuasion) then take the linkages of the swash and it will drop off u do not need to take the pitch control rod out at all. You only need to take this out if you want to remove the washout!!

That worked - I only had to loosen 3 screws on the retaining collars and out it came. Thanks

It's amazing to be sitting in Utah and have people from Scotland help me!!! By the way, some of my ancestors were from Scotland. I descend from the Dunbar and Cameron lines.

Here a link to a pdf file of the entire manual but also shows how to replace the mainshaft step by step (the first half of the manual is german - the second part English)

Might be useful to download and refer to.

http://www.shop.graupner.de/stores/.../pdf/4441.b.pdf

Also here is a link to a step by step guide with photos by Panem on Zoomhelinet

Hope this helps

Happy flying
