Winter is comming and time to bring the hornet 2 out of moth balls. Is there any upgrade besides a $100 swasch to tighten up the slop. There is not that much flight time on this heli. It's just amazing how sloppy in got in a short period of time. Is there a upgrade or do I buy a metal swasch plate???

Thanks
Hoss

I had exactly the same problem. The slop was in the ball-bearing
which was of low quality (at least in my case) and was getting
worse with time. You can buy a new ball-bearing and use the plastic
parts of the swash. I bought duzi swash instead and the difference
was amazing! Now I have many flights on it and still no sign of any slop.

Normally the HII does not have a ball in the swash. So I don't see how it can wear

A cheapo improvement would be to introduce the ball-mod (abt $10). this is already a "dramatic" improvement over the slop in the swash.
Offcourse going to a full alu swash is a serious upgrade but costs serious money.
I would first look at the ball-mod and do some improvements in the head and tail to make it a bit more rigid(implement some alu parts there).

Just my 2 cnts.

Greetz,

Its not the ball in swash mod, its the swash bearing itself becoming loose over time. Mine is the same way. I need to get a new one, otherwise some pretty significant stick movements don't get to the rotorhead.

Jiri,

Which bearing are you referring to? Are you referring to the the stock plastic swashplate (no bearing) or DeeTee's upgraded plastic ball-in-swash?

Don't forget, the stock swash has one bearing in it. (between the rotating and non-rotating parts)

hmmm, you're right. I guess he was referring to the stock swash. DeeTee does sell the plastic upgraded ball-in-swash for for 40 something. I'd think that should do the trick of you weren't wanting to spend the 100.00

I was refering to the big ball-bearing which is sometimes very
sloppy on the stock swash. The ball-in-swash mod is something
different and it is probably the first mod to do (no need to buy a new
swash, just buy the ball for 8 or 10$ and put it into the stock swash).

Hi, I got rid of a lot of slope just by adjusting servo position to have straight link (specialy on the front servo).
