And most likely the reason why the "Swifts" are not in the list that I cut and paste above.
Actually this is a problem with the Hawk, Raven NX, and Swift.

The last time I used the washer fix was for my Raven NX from last season.
The other pilots I was talking about don't even fly swifts.
Hawks / Ravens and ran into the same problem with the upgrade.
They both use the same tail case, and had to use washers.
This was not a problem only with the swift tails.

Exactly Beavis. eeeky, Let's see a close-up of how you got that to work. On mine, nothing lines up with that metal slider.
Ya, I would be very much interested in some close up pictures too!
Wow, no one has close up shots of the tail

eeeky, What tail pushrod holder? Can I see a pic of
the tail servo to the pushrod guide? Also, is the control arm spaced down or not. Thanks

hehe, yeah thats what happens when you play around with REALLY low funnels... The tail pushrod is stock, with the stock holder. I did have to use one brass spacer, at about 3mm wide, but thats it.

I tried spacing mine down too. With the stock pushrod guide, the rod was not even close to where it needed to be on the tail servo arm.

Yes the spacer clears it up

I think we should ask Century to add the spacer and sell a swift version packed with the spacer!
