Flybarless: 600N 8717's cyclic, (QuickUK swash damaged) , Microbeast

Tipped over on lift off, New to FBL + wind

now for the damages:
broken link on one of the two long arms ( I was wondering why all the extra links that came with those rods. )
small crack in 1 main blade
bent front base arm of QuickUK swash

So I'm looking for a suitable swash and I loved the QuickUK but... The one I have IS machined thinner on the three lower arms.

The front one being bent now, (I see the stress cracks) has anyone thought about the weakness of the "older" QuickUK swash not being a good choice for FBL because it was machined thinner on the three lower arms (for weight) and therefore weaker?

I looked at the QuickUK add and it reads now suitable for fbl
but it might not have changed at all. Is it sufficient?
Is the Align one better because its thicker?

There are several Align swash choices:

This is the Align upgraded swash

Or the QuickUK

Did they change this ? or is it just re branded?

Regarding the Red Black RC swash. My friends one wore out rather quickly. It is rebuildable though. I use the newer style align swasplate on my 600N FBL.



Why buy?? when you can borrow and no return

Kona, there are a few do you know which part number you have?
(Check the links in the first post)

(I'm not flying without it

I emailed QuickUK yesterday about noon. I had a reply in about an hour. Amazing service. Budd said they could rebuild my existing swash swapping out the lower unit for about 1/3 the cost of a new one.
$30 US ~~ not bad. He also told me the difference in the NEW Quick Swash was the inner swash is smaller in diameter. This makes the swash more optimal for the FBL setup. Using Align upgrade parts the geometry is better. (the default inner balls were too long)So there WAS an issue with the origonal , ONLY as it relates to perfect geometry. Interesting news.
