Let's here your opinions. Which gives more travel, the MicroHeli or Xtreme swashplates? Which is better the shorter outside arms or the longer inside arms?
Are there quality issues with the Xtreme swashplates?

Let's here it.

I have the Microheli one and it sucks. It seems to weigh down the heli and makes it fly worse.

I just got the Microheli swash. I don't like the way the links fit between the swash and the flybar when on the long balls. They look like they could slip out of position easy but so far no problem. I'd like to try the Xtreme swash because I think it would be the better way to go with the shorter outer swash balls.

I ended up going with a Micro Heli swash. It works great.

I have both the Extreme and both the original and new SE MicroHeli swashes. Having flown all of them extensively i find that the new MH SE swash is the best of the bunch.
First off... while the Extreme swash has shorter arms, it does NOT relate to the same overall control throw and response quickness as the new MH SE. with the shorter arms it presents a possible conflict with the tail motor connector where it meets the 5-in-1,(the issue is with the bottom of the ball end contacting the connector within its control throw) and there's not much you can do to prevent this from possibly binding with a control arm. On top of this the quality of the large bearing is very poor. there is considerable mechanical slop in the bearing that adds alot of play in the whole cyclic works. The last problem is that the anti-rotation pin on the back is very short... too short in-fact, and too easily pops out of the guide slot on the main frame when forward cyclic input combinations are performed. The only way to fix this shortfall is the attach lengthening pieces to the main frame guides.
The old MH, as well as the new SE swash, are made to a much higher standard of quality and are really nice pieces. The original MH swash is good but lacks the real extended throws that we're all looking for. The new SE swash addresses all the areas of low quality/performance that the others fail to meet IMO.
I was overjoyed to see the improvement in flight and build quality of the new MH swash.
