I installed a Quick UK swash on my Trex 600N and had to lengthen my swash link rods by about 2mm, from 31.5 as specified in the manual to 33.5 measuring between the Align links. This only leaves 3mm of thread in the link on each end (at best!). This doesn't seem safe to me. The swash is also hitting the pins below the washout base as well so I'll have to reduce either collective (from 13 deg) or roll rate. It looks like I can use the rods intended for the throttle linkage as they are 8mm longer. Has anyone else been thru this? Thanks

You can split the difference and lengthen the rods at the "top" of the swash that go to the upper mixing arms. You will need to also lengthen the rods that go from the flybar down to the washout mixing arms. I have Quick UK swashes on all of my 600's. Great upgrade.

Waiting for parts

Got lucky, had a set of three 44mm rods from an old Raptor 50 in my spares, perfect! I noticed that Raptor plastic links are longer than Align links and I could have used those but they are sloppy on the Align balls, they are a perfect fit on the Quick UK balls though
