Back into RC's ooold Axe CP with FM Radio :)
Grudgingly accepted a fairly nice Axe rc heli, in trade.
Swash looks like it has separated. Picture.

The blade grip is broken, previous owner, crashed it.
Fortunately, rebuild parts and extra blades are there.

Advice from anyone that has re-glued the swash.
My finances are pretty low, and the last thing I needed
was a heli again, but I hate to have one sitting there in a broken state. Something about OCD and heli's that goes together.

The swash separated on the one that I had 10 years ago. I just pushed it back together and flew it. I remember mine as being a friction fit. The blade grips are weak. Use plastic ones instead of upgrading to aluminum and you will save other parts. I finally started keeping a few on hand.
The best upgrade I made was using plastic flat bottom blades. It was much easier to fly then!

Thanks for the input.It's actually not a bad looking
little bird. Agree with you on the metal parts.
If something goes,metal wins over plastic, most of the time.

On the early ones, the "gyro" was a rate gyro at best. I learned to fly the tail on this bird.

Looks like you are having a great time. I enjoyed my old Axe CP in a similar fashion. I found a canopy on ebay. It seems to be the only one in existence.

It's kinda fun. The helimax belonged to the guy that owns the newspaper here, and he wanted to see it fly. So, gonna see if I can get it flying a little better and then take it over.
I haven't flown any rc in a while, almost like starting over.

The helimax is challenging with the old tx.
I kinda bypassed having to learn all mechanical.
Been interesting so far. Didn't want to invest much in it.
My financial situation is still not the greatest.
Last 3 years haven't been so great.
