The rotor head control link is rubbing against the spacing back plate when the head is rotated. I've tried bending back the spacing back plate a little, but I'm afraid it will break. Any way of fixing this problem? I'm using the HS-55 servos on the swash. Thanks.

are you refering to the antirotation device that keeps the swash from spinning. The 2" high loop in the back of the frame directly behind the swash?

If so remove it and hit it with a hair dryer or heat gun I had to bend mine when I went to the metal head.

Thanks, tyran. I applied a little heat with a soldering iron and was able to bend the plate back. Thanks again.

what i did was light a lighter about 6-8in. from the antirotation

thing and just bend it back.

I also did this on my woodies when the plastic got loose.

(i dont recommend this; i accidentally burned a hole in the plastic)
