I just bough a used Diabolo airframe and in a midle of setup and I found that the swash plate kinda hesitate when I applied collective, when I took off the swash guide and the swash arm this is what I found, the brass tubing not turning anymore and overtime it had two flat spot from rubbing on to the swash guide. Instead of order the new tubing, I just stole the idea from my other Helis and make a mod for this heli, work real well on the bench right now hope it do the same in flight. Hope this help any one that have the same issue as I did.

Great idea! I had a similar problem but not to that extent. Where did you get the metal swash guide? Any benefits? Also, any difference due to weight of bearings?

I machine my own swash guide, it move a lot smoother no more binding and grinding. The Swash guide is about the same weight with the Black plastic one, bearings are 4-3x7x3mm I really didn't weight them at all.

I agree with Magneto and JC, although I only put a few hundred flights on mine, it is by far my favorite heli,

yes, I am bias, but I was totally sold on the Diabolo from the moment I saw it in the 2011 Speed Cup which won. The rest is history.
Everyone (almost) that builds and flies one flies nothing else
