E-flight swash plate
I've upgraded my blade with the E-flight Blue al. swash plate and it seems fine to me, although I havent much flying time yet.
Heli-Direct has several swash plates for the blade and I have gotten supper service from them ordering other parts from them.

I went with the bell hiller upgrade, but haven't gone with any other upgrades yet(other then lipo and 9t gear). I think I will get the center hub in aluminum because it breaks to easily in minor crashes. The rest of the head I have not converted because, if I spend $100 on cnc parts and I have a crash it is going to be expensive to replace bent or damaged parts.

With the plastic parts, I can replace anything I suspect is worn or damaged. I have read of a few people that were not happy with their investment when they replaced everything with cnc al., I have also heard of some that were very happy. The al. swash from what I have heard looks nice but fly's the same as plastic swash at 10% the price.

At this time I think the weakest link for the Blade cp is the electronics, the servo's seem to have a little slop and the gyro is sensitive and the tail motor burns out quickly. If you get rid of the slop in the servo's you will find you have a much tighter machine with less yo yo and better response.

Just my opinion

Hi,
Is there any way to get rid of the slope other than get the servos from other manufacturer?

The aluminum things seem to be a little heavier as well.

Better quality servo's seems to be a good way to get rid od alot of the slop, but a good way to is to check all the moving parts if you have had a few crashes and/or have some hours of wear. check where your conections are at the swash I had some loose fitting conections there, when I replace the parts the blade became much more stable
