Swashplate might be a good idea, but everything MicroHeli makes is such soft metal. I think those aluminum blade grips (while looking nice) will probably bend very quickly.Avant RC

Yeah, and if you ever have a problem with anything, good luck on getting any satisfaction out of them....

I can vouch for the microheli aluminium being soft. It came in a bit bent and I used some pliers to bend it back. No biggie.

It's a nice swash, don't get me wrong. Not as tight as a quality 50 size swash or anything, but you know. I don't think I will actually bend it in a crash anyways. I also like the fact that the balls for the links are screw-in.

Anything else is over kill for this heli I think.

Just buy spare links and fly it as is.

I had the opposite experience. I received a mCPX swash plate shipped in a padded envelope. One arm was bent, probably due to post office processing.

I sent an email to MicroHeli and they asked for pictures. I sent as requested and a while later a replacement showed up. This time it was shipped in a box and was in excellent shape.

I bought one of the first full Rex 450 tails from them and it was defective. I sent it back to them thru USPS and luckily I put delivery confirmation and insurance on it. It was delivered and they said they never received it. The post office even had the recipient name. They wouldn't return emails at all so I finally emailed that I was filing a claim thru USPS. Still no response. I did get my money back, but never any satisfaction from Microheli. As far as I am concerned they have poorly made shiny products and very suspect business practices.

When Microheli first started along with many other small heli related companies, there were many problems with parts not holding up or working well. I have noticed a huge improvement over the years.

Yeah there may be negative about both microheli and rakon.

I bought the rakon swash and found it to be only slightly better than stock, just recieved the microheli swash and it is hands down no question better and a great improvement in stability. no grommets needed.

No play in the bearing like the stock one or rakon's version.

SO I just ordered a second one for my other heli..

I'll have a rakon swash for sale soon.

Isn't the advantage of the Microheli or Rakon swashes the fact that the elevator balls don't snap off? I mean besides the better tolerances....

Rakon bearing is as sloppy as stock negating 1/2 the value IMO

Just got the Microheli swash yesterday. It's a very nice piece of equipment. Changed out the swash and test flew it, no problems. Very happy with it. I almost always order a swash from Microheli on all my small helis. The main reason for me is to get rid of the plastic balls. I wish these helis would come with a swash like the ones from Microheli.
