Sounds like the same people that make the JR Forza 700 swash make this swash also. Just kidding (sort of), as there is a similar problem on the swash on that heli.

I would contact Mikado USA and let them know about the issue. I have two Mikado helis, 600SX and 690SX and neither had a tight swash, but I got both of them used, so the previous owner might have seen the issue and gotten it corrected or just broken it in to where it isn't tight.

FWIW, I am assuming you are referring to the large ball that goes over the main shaft, right? If so, I wouldn't be sanding on it, but rather, let Mikado get it fixed.

I would hit It with some 3 in 1 oil n move it around bet it will loosen up. IMHO I prefer a tad tight vs loose, but it's gotta move as the servos will needless be worked to hard. Try lube ing the socket n ball n lets us know
