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!

Mine popped out second flight, pushed it back in and hasn't come out since (about 100 flights on it so far)

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.
