turbogti...

A swashplate leveling tool is probably a very good idea. That's next on my list of tools to acquire. I'm tried of guesstimating the level of the swashplates of my heli's.

Later...

I think EVERY manufacturer should supply in each kit, a "swashplate jig". One that would hold the swashplate level, at the location on the main shaft that it should be in, when at 0 degrees collective and 0 degrees cyclic.

Such a jig could easily be a very inexpensive U-shaped molding.

Minair used to provide two wooden blocks to do something similar with their old X-Cell kits. But today, a U-shaped molding, that could be slipped between the top of the mainbearing block and the bottom of the swashplate, would be simple and very effective.

I have the heli & I know see the need for a ball link pliers.
Getting to the ball links on the swash can be tricky..

I may order the deluxe kit sooner than i thought along with the dial indicator.
