Home Made Flybar Lock/Swashplate Level
This morning I looked out the window to see this:

So I decided I would putz around in my basement and make a new tool to help with setup. Inspired by Ron's tool (which is very cool and a great idea) along with some posts I have seen here, I came up with this:

My key objective for my version was to not have to remove the head button to mount it. I gave it a try and it works perfectly on my Fury 55, T700 & T600.

That is the part that allows you to measure/determine if the swashplate it level and well as to measure/determine CCPM interactions. The basic concept is that any changes in swashplate are translated up to the paddles (assuming you do not have a ton of slop in the system).

For more info, check out Ron's video on his tool:

Looks cool. I like how it slides back and forth to fit around the head button. Very nice.It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
