Ah but the one issue is that it assumes the helicopter itself is level in both axis. If not then your swash will not end up level. EG, if your helicopter is sitting slightly nose down, then when the bubble says the swash is level, it will actually have aft cyclic in it

Wow that device looks complicated. I still believe my technique is still the most accurate as you can actually measure the differences between each pushrod.

To answer your questions, yes it is easy to use and this V2 looks as if it will work with more heli (like the electric 450's) than my V1. Also it has more adjustability than my V1 (I actually modified it a bit).

The money....well I think the price is a little steep but it definitely is a good setup tool. That part you have to think about yourself. If you dont have anything to level your swashplate with then I would add it to my setup tools

The simple way, do not need to remove the head to use this. Just clamp on spindle. Sets correct swash height also.

The case against politicians simply is that when they legislate for all men, they always omit themselves

I have used 3 point swash levelers, and found taking the head off to be time consuming.
I made a homemade version of this:

I used 3/4 " alum. stock, and a piece of a 250 tail boom cut to lenght, bolt with wing nut. I used it on a second heli, and needed it a little longer, just added come washers. works like a charm, and slips on and off in a second.

by sliding down the main shaft it does not matter if the heli is level because its perfectly squared to the main shaft. you could adjust it sideways or upside down.
