I put the freya paddles on for the first time the other day and they stripped???? It says in the directions to make sure all the threaded part goes through until you get to the smooth part to put the set screw. Well it never went all the way through, the damn things just keep turning in there. Does anyone know if you can buy just the metal thread part for the paddles? If so where?

Thanks

Volkul's right!!
Jeff is a first class guy, and he stands behind his products!!

I sent him an email 2 weeks ago about a stress crack that developed in my Sceadus swashplate. 3 days later, I had a replacement in my hands!!!!

Make sure
Make sure you have the metal peices installed with the threaded portion facing out. Only one side of the metal collar is threaded. Also it needs to be to the outside so that when the set screw is tightened and flattens the threads and you need to remove it again you can.

Inserts,
Hey dude,

Let me know if you cannot get them to work and I'll get you another set. They can be tight the first time. Also make sure the holes between the stopper and the paddle are lined up so the flybar can go thru. The stoppers can rotate until the flybar goes thru which would give you the same type of thing. Remember to place the threaded portion outwards on the flybar so the set screw bites the flybar and not the threads.


Thanks

Paddle Inserts
ok, i took the inserts out off the paddles and tryed to thread them on, I got one of them through no problem but the other gets half way through and just wont go any further. I would really appreciate it if you could hook me up with another set of the matal inserts.

Thanks for the support

No Problem
As this is the weekend and you wont get them until next week, try this. Chase the threads with a 4mm bolt, ie a blade bolt or muffler bolt. Make sure there is no debris in the threads either. Try this and see if it works and then I'll get another set on the way to you.


Sorry about the trouble.

Jeff

4 mm bolt
I threaded a 4mm bolt throught both of the Metal inserts no prob. I do have 2 flybars so I tryed putting them on both but the on insert WILL NOT go all the way on the flybar. I tryed holding it with vis grips but I still couldn't get it on. I will send you my info If you could please send me a new set of the inserts. There is no hurry on getting them out, when ever you get around to it is fine, I am going to be out of town for a week or so.

Thanks alot

Now yall are making me wonder if I did mine right. I don't feel like realigning the paddles if I loosen them and if its wrong it should be a couple mm's off, so is 127mm (5in.) about right for the exposed part of the flybar? if yours is smaller then mine is wrong, so let me know.

Thanks,
Joel

Oops, forgot that this thread was about the Freya, but they must be the same length as the Sceadu if they are that close. I feel dumb for not thinking of this before but I can take out one setscrew and see if I see threads and not mess up the alignment.

I took a paddle off since I saw threads, so I took it apart. I guess the Sceadu is different b/c mine is threaded on both sides and you have to unthread over the smashed threads no matter what. I guess its not too bad b/c those set screws are small enough not to smash the threads much anyway.
