First flight... ring on swash falls out.
On my maiden flight of my new Trex 700 I see something shinny that just didn't look right. When I landed I noticed the bottom ring on the swash plate had fallen out of the swash.

Anyone else seen this before?

that was very common a few months ago but I figured Align fixed the issue because I haven't heard much of it lately. Most guys I talked to just push it back in and never had any problem.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

It is the bearing seal. It should pop back in couple of more times depending on how late you discovered it loose. If it no longer stays in, then cut it off.

At that point, you have no choice.
