In the extra screw parts bag, there should be a small brass tubing. It fits well over the pitch slider pin. So I drilled out the hole larger on the bell crank to fit the little brass tube. I didnt' have the right drill bit so I used a smaller drill bit I had to drill a pilot hole. Then I used the supplied Phillips screw driver to ream out the hole. The outside diameter of the philips screw driver is a tad bit smaller than the outside diameter of the brass tube. So after I reammed it out, I hammered it in with the flat side of my plyers. Leave the longer side of the brass tube hanging down wards. After press fit is done, I used thick gap filling CA and CA accelorator to hold it in place. I can feel it moving really smooth now. A bit less slop but there is still a little slop. But moving more freely was my goal.

Here are the photos of the mod...

Tell me what you think..

I run the same mod but with the shorter bushing, it works great.

Elongate
Actually as WILLY pointed out the geometry of the pitch controll is wrong. To have it proper you would have to elongate the hole that the brass tube is in.
