Hi guys,

Some advice. Is this amount of slop "acceptable"? Seems to have worn with time. See video:

I personally don't see an issue with it.

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I have noticed varying amounts of play on this part over the years. Even on new helis. I am sure that it changes the phase a tiny bit, but i couldn't detect it. I would be most worried about it catching on the pins if worn unevenly.

That slop isn't going to make much of a difference to the way it fly's. If you want, you slip some plastic packing tape on the block (sticky side to the block) on either side of the pins and that should take care of the slop while not creating any friction. I did it years ago of a shuttle that is still that way today.

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

There usually is a small amount of play even new. Personally I haven't noticed any issue or interaction. We did consider making a either a slider or slightly larger pins at one stage but everything has gone FBL now so kind of pointless at this time.

If you are worried about phasing, just setup the phasing against the side this is being driven by the head. In other words turn the swash in the opposite direction to the blade direction and use that as your reference point as that will be how it will work when flown.
