Hi Brian and all,

I seem to have dropped a ring from my swashplate.

This has happened a couple of times now, the heli still flies perfectly and I just push it back into position after each flight. I'm guessing it's just a dust cover and I'd be perfectly happy to cut it off if Brian gives the word.

I'd hate for the swash to lock and have a crash over it as I'm loving my Rave

Yes it is just a dust cover. Cut it off and forget about it. It will make no difference at all. We have seen this a very small handfull of times, but after removed it has no effect what so ever.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

mine did exactly the same thing mate, just snipped mine off with some side cutters and it was no problem, in fact when it was flapping around loose under the swash it started to bind the swash a few times intermitantly causing momentary loss of control.

Chopped it off and its been fine ever since, no worries.

Cheers, Will.

Would'nt a little thin CA do the trick, thus allowing the ring to do it's job?

Too late it's gone !!!

PJ... I flew mine again last night, two flights. Home from work, cut the grass and when the breez drops off in the late evening have a few flights in front of the house. I'm really starting to like it now. Fantastic little heli.
