Im looking for a place to order 3 diff tools. I need a swashplate level for a Trex 450SE, 600N, and Raptor 90. I would prefet the type that slides on the main shaft, instead of bubble levels if possible.

Yep, ReadyHeli would be my choice as well. I don't think anyone makes a slide over the mainshaft type leveler for the Raptor, but i'm not for sure about that. FMP makes a bubble type that would probably work. I'm sure others will chime in here with a few solutions.

Indoor plumbing??? No, we don't need that!!!

HelicopterJohn on here has quite a selection of the swash tools. May be worth a look.

I just used the FMP swash leveler yesterday on my Pantera. Works very well. I set up for 0 degrees pitch at mid-stick on both blades before using it. Then I leveled the swash at mid-stick and at full and low collective and all was well. You can get it from Ron's or GrandRC.

can anyone tell me which end goes up on the setup tool for the raptor 90? i bought one like helicopter johns from his gallery. My problem is im using a QUK swashplate and the QUK vmax conversion bearing blocks. Can I still use this tool or did i waste my money? The swashplate looks like the stock 90 but i will have to check on the bearing blocks. Any help would be great.
