Ballistic swash leveler
I kept the one I bought for my Trex700 but it doesn't work, it won't reach all 3 points. I've used an allen key for now but would like a real tool. Any suggestions as to what works?

The GForce Swash Pro version 2 works well. I use it on everything from my 450's to my 700s

I use a very simple method and it works quite well.

First I mount a carbon tube (you can use just about anything straight) on top of the rotorhead in the place of the head button. Then set your pitch guage at 0 degrees and put it on one blade. Next, turn on your radio and raise the collective until the pitch guage aligns with the carbon tube. Now, check your main blade at 90 degree rotational increments to see if your swash is level and adjust it as necessary.

Also, it's easy to raise or lower your pitch to any level then realign the pitch guage with the carbon tube and check your main blade again at 90 degree increments to see if the swashplate is level and adjust as necessary.

For me, it's simple and much easier to see very small changes in the main blade than the swashplate.

Keep up your rotor speed !
