Hi i have no issues so far with original swash plate on the titan se ,got a spare quick uk one ,but seems as if the groove as in the hole at the bottom isnt big enough , when using full negative and adding back cyclic it hits the at the bottom on the frame behind the collar as if the groove is not big enough ,the original works fine ,i read on another topic that the old swash plates the groove wasnt made big enough,any thoughts thanx.

I can't see how it's doing that with the main grips running leading edge.

QUK Swashplate
The Quick UK Swash plate comes with a smaller collar that clamps onto the main shaft by means of set screws. If you use the Raptor stock collar you will get severely limited cyclic deflection.

The stock swashplate still has slightly more total throw even with the magic collar. It's a thicker unit so various parts that hit will only hit sooner. Do everyone a service and measure your total pitch before and then after both individually and compounded(together) Hey it is still a fine swashplate but people should know what changes may be involved.

OK guys thanx so much i managed to get the collar that i didnt have ,i got it on ,i dont no why one can still get more throw from the original swash ,going back to basics setting cyclic up 100 percent both ways on the radio the original swash will go all the way ,with the quick uk swash i had to drop to 80 percent both ways before it just touched the collar on full neg and full back cylic ,the result being more than enough cylic which was 9 degrees,i only need around 7 ,the original swash being way over 10 degrees ,just a thought why quick uk has less travel,thanx
