Will a 690SX swashplate work with a 550SX? Thought about putting something a little more beefy on the 550SX.

Why wouldn't it work?

Same diameter main shaft. Same frame and servo positions. Same room for collective travel. The only noticeable difference would be a faster cyclic response because of the different geometry on the inner swash ring.

No?

They changed the swash ratio so perhaps not optimal anymore but it works.

Is the distance from main shaft center to the swash "ball" centers the same?

Are the "ball" OD's the same as that of the 550SX swash?

Works fine but honestly, I would wait for the new Lynx swashplate. It will be serviceable and have the same swash/head ratios as the 690sx swashplate but none of the falling apart problems of the Mikado swashplates.

I have one on my Logo 500 and it really improved the cyclic response. Flies even better now and looks like it belongs there rather than the puny swash that came with it.

No it will not work on 550SX
100% Incorrect. It works perfect. I have had one on a 550SX since they were first available.

yeah, I was asking for further opinions - but I saw a guy using the 690 swash on his 550SX, but wanted to confirm to see if any mods. we're required, but I think it's just a drop in.
