Too bad you need a leveler to make sure the zip-tie is true to 90 degrees to the mast at all times. Do you use the same zip-tie to hold the allen wrench to the mast or use a second one? That's what I didn't understand... This 90 degree thing takes the beauty out of this tip and makes it really cumbersome indeed...

Hey mckrackin, just kidding with ya... couldn't help it. Sorry...

Really like your idea. Too bad you didn't post it about a month ago. Had to level a swash on a Century Predator but couldn't remove the head. Almost destroyed the model and my house in the process... was pretty brutal.

In the end I ended up with broken fins an a hole on my hardwood floor

Well done.

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

What did you have to do? Beat it against the floor to get the head off??

Sorry about your floor, but maybe next time you'll want to just use a sledgehammer instead. Haha.

mckrackin... that's one heck of a tip. thanks! I could have used this last week when i worked on leveling mine... and took me hours. i got it when you mention zip tie the first time and didn't need the vids... some people will argue no matter what! that's there lost and you shouldn't have to sleep over it.

Excellent idea. I already have an "expensive" tool for 450 and 600, but this saves me the money for my 700 at least...

I think what these two ideas have in common is it points out the people that should not be flying helicopters really quick...

as the song says "I like it, I like it, yes I do"

with all the crap you got to do to get a Heli in the air it's nice to have something as easy as this to make things simple..

the thing about this is it can be used (as the clip shows) with the Heli completely intact, and I have always wanted a simple way to check the Swash with the Head intact, and now I have it, I wish it was my idea LOL..

HUH???? Are we talking about helis here?

Cool zip tie idea. Eyeballing is still easier, For me anyway.
