First let me start by saying Im not a master builder but have assembled 4 Trex 500, Raptors, Vibe 50, Vibe 90, Evo 50, etc.. all with great success but for the life of me cannot figure out what my problem is on this X50.

I will start from the swash and describe up, with TX at center stick, pitch curve of 0-50-100.

Swash level
Radius Arms Level (line up across with eachother)
Long links same length
Short Links to Cage Same length
Cage level
Paddles level
Arms on grips 90 degrees with long linkage
Shortest links same length
Blades at zero pitch

Now the fun part..

Full collective
Blade 1 13 degrees +/-
Blade 2 10 degrees +/-

This remains true all the way around. I rotate head all the way around checking pitch of blade at front/back and both sides.

At full pitch swash is level. Paddles level, again checking all the way around.

WTF !!!!

Im checking swash with caliper to top of bearing block. Also the hole section on all arms is the same. This is the first thing I suspected. Next I thought maybe a warped blade but they look fine and if it were warped it would be a higher reading for either + or - depending on warp.

Completely lost. Im to the point that I hope its something super simple and everyone will laugh at me for missing it

Give this a try, Check all your levers from pivot point to balls. One of them might be off?

Yes one of the levers highest on the head.. the ones on the grips... was 180 off. DOH!!!! I found it after posting and going over the head several times. So now everyone can give me hard time about it

Thanks
