Greetings,

While shopping for a replacement dfc swash for my current very sloppy one I notice that many are "dual digit" ones like this:

I have never heard this term " dual digit swash" but all I could find with google is about 5000 other places to buy one. What does dual digit mean? What is it's utility? Thanks in advance.

Dual digit, "new improved swash", And just call it a dual digit. Maybe, new name so it must be good. But with the ball 90 degree from what they were makes it easier to get the pliers in to pop the links off.

I have now idea of where the name came from, but the swash pictured can handle two different styles of links - the older kind that push in radially, for the outside pushed in toward the center and the newer DFC style that push on 90 degrees from that.

digit is probably just a poor chinese translation of finger or prong.

dual prong or dual finger swash--meaning it has two differnt sets of inner balls depending on if you want to fly DFC or standard.

if it ain't broke, break it.
