Settings on the "L" program of my AR7000bx indicate that my Swashplate servos are not showing enough travel to get the desired parameters. Servo arms are set per the MA manual. If I increase the travel with the radio I get binding of the servos.

I am looking at installing longer balls on the Swashplate to accommodate the receiver settings.

Has anyone run into this and is there a serious down side to changing away from the stock ball lengths on the Swashplate?

You will need to use the longer ball (MA 0109 3x8mm) on all seven swash ball locations. This will increase the resolution for any FBL system and it will perform better.

I just built a gasser whiplash and used the AR7200BX. Every Thing worked fine when setting up the AR7200BX.

Have you double checked your built, servo install, and links?

Strange, my gasser kit had MA 109 for the inter ring and MA 107 (3x6) for the outer ring.

The manual also called for 19mm spacing on the servo arms.

I followed the manual and I passed the tests with lots of room left over when setting up my Ar7200BX.

You will need to acquire more of the MA 0109 for this change.
