Hello

My swashplate on my Logo 400 Vbar har split. It is the collar that holds the "pivot" ball (the ball that slides up and down the main shaft) that has separated from the rest of the swash.

Short question, is it possible to glue this ring back on using epoxy or is the swash defective?

Thanks for any thoughts

Tried planks, but after all, wood is best on the bonfire.

no u can`t not glue it together. it will come lose again.

i would take a puncher and punch close to the edge in 4 places so the hole get defected and it will stop the plastic liner from coming out again

i started with nothing and still got most of it left

Did you get it from ReadyHeli? I had the same problem a few months back. I sent them the swash and they replaced it free of charge.

Sorry helihover, I didn't notice you were from Norway and probably didn't get it in the USA. Anyhow I had the same problem. I was told that it never should have come apart like that and it was replaced for free.

agreed, mikado and whatever rep is in norway should take care of that for you. I was there for some flights on rnkasps logo 400 when the swash was split but before we knew it. Made things.....a bit interesting.

Thanks for all your help. I actually bought the heli from ReadyHeli, and contacted them today. No replacement, as this was a wearing part. I was told either to buy a new swash or to glue the bushing using epoxy.
I used Hysol and glued it bak in. No problems - I have even tried to press it out again using quite a lot of force - but it is stuck, and I think problem is solved. Needless to say I will keep an eye on it

So all is well

Thanks again!!
