I agree the swash develops slop very quickly, and mine is sloppy as all get with almost 200 flights on it, unfortunately I still havent got my QUK swashplate installed yet.

I didnt have EXP activated on my JR9XII so i am hoping MrMel has solved my problem it is now on and i just need to test fly the heli. I did notice that once activated i had to increase the swash mix value to get the same throws.

Futaba dont have it/need it, they "default" to same as EXP=ACT when you set 120 degree swash.

14MZ has a "advanced" version though where you can manipulate each "mix" by yourself.

Yes, the new unit is very much more precise and smooth, however, the unit I have in front of me has no dimensional or ratio changes from the stock unit. Maybe across the pond they have yet another version:
there is a difference in the spacing/alignment of the balls on the swash and the alignment of the pins/washout i do know fact, i have both units infront of me.

Yes I lost overall pitch range, all set to 60, I went from + - 14 to + - 12.5 so my guess was there is averaging going on here.

I would have to move the collective travel?(in the swash menu) up to some number to get back to 14degrees. I will go up to 13 I guess but dont really feel I need 14 at this time.

I have been told this is same on the Spectrums as they are JR as well.

yep, just up the numbers in the swash menu.

Spektrum is using JR's system so yeah, its the same.

JR/Spektrum should change programing in their radios so when you select 120 degree swash EXP should be set to ACT... oh well, you cant get everthing.

I get like 15/15 with the quickUk before hitting the pashing ring aka center block

I reduced it to 13/13... more than I can manage anyway

No, all numbers are "affected" so you need to adjust your collective AND your cyclic.

wow glad I checked I was all set to do that, move just the collective. Was given advice to only do the collective. I think you have saved me from issues here.
