I was hovering my Hawk Sport the other day. The Nylon or Delrin insert on the swashplate started creeping up the main shaft. The only thing I can see that holds it in place is a crimp that runs around the circular portion of the swashplate. Anybody have this happen to them. I got around 40 flights on the Hawk Sport. I guess its time to replace the swashplate as I didnt want to fly it like that.

Jeff,

Contact Century and they will replace the swash for you if you send it in. They've had some of them come apart because of a faulty crimp.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

I just got off the phone with Century Helicopter. No luck. I sent an email and Red Nylander said to send it back., gave me an RMA number and everything. I guess it depends on who you contact. Thankyou Steve.
