I seem to have quite a bit of freeplay on my collective. Is it ok to fly? It seemed fine during my last flight.. but just concerned it may not be good in the long run. I've checked that the linkages are still tight.. but i think the freeplay comes from the swashplate and seesaw/washout arms..

I'm flying a Shuttle plus so most of the components there are plastic..could this be another contributing factor?

Much appreciated...

Some slop on the swash is no problem for the standard hovering and flying work. Raptor standard swashes tended to have quite some slop too.
