Just got a new set of forward swash links (bellcranks to swash). If they are "fixed" length, and not supposed to be adjustable, why were the links facing the same direction? I had to rotate a link on both to get them on.

I bought mine used a while back, so I don't know what the previous owner did.

rotating them does NOT change the length, the rods are not threaded, thats how they come new it the kits as well, there is no problem here

How are the ball links attached to the rod?

pushed or molded onto the rod with groves so you can spin the link, to line them up

I like the fixed length rods this model uses. No adjustment necessary and the length of both links is perfectly matched.

Don, On pages 21 and 26 in the manual it mentions the rod lengths are fixed.

They all are (from cyclic servos to swashplate), but not being the original owner I assumed that the forward swash links would be twisted and fixed.

The links that go to the main blade grips and the T/R push rod are not fixed.
