I have been chasing down a vibe on my protos and found a problem with my swash plate. The outer ring of the swashmoves back and forth or side to side when the inner ring turns. The main shaft is straight as an arrow. It looks like the swashplate ball is not centered up. Anyone else have this problem? Are there better swashplates to be had or should I just get another swashplate?

Thanks,
Harlan

This is a known problem as of late. There's an ongoing thread on the other forum (hf) about this.

I would return the swashplate to the vendor in exchange for a new one.

The swashplate for the Hirobo Lepton is a perfect fit. But they are more expensive and hard to come by. There is also the swashplate from helidirect for the HC500 which will also fit, but the quality is not the same.

There's also some from CNChelicopter:

I got another swashplate and had the same problem. I keep looking and found a bad bearing in the motor that was causing some vibes. It turns out that when I take the head and swash driver off and turn just the inside ring while the main shaft is stationary the outside ring moves just a little. I can put the head and swashdriver on and spin it and the outer swashplate ring doesn't move. I am guessing without the head and swashdriver, the inner swashplate ring and the ball can turn independently. The ball and inner swashplate move together when the main shaft it turning things.

Right now my protos is flying very well.

I wonder if any one else has the same results.
