Default New swash probs?

Today my 3rd re-kit arrived, [ yes smashed another 1 ]

Just opened the box to check everything through, its all there even the new CF gyro tray which is nice.

However, the swash is different to my others, it only has 2 balls for the delrin rods [ no problem ] and all the balls are black in colour and shorter [ as in the inconsistent parts thread ]

The originals had a 1.5 mm hex screw, these a 2.5. Also there is what looks like a washer built into the whole thing. This renders the silver spacers from the old swash useless.

Is this now the "New" norm here? Looking at it, looks like the links will not be as 90% as before.


Cheers....

I have heard rumours of the new swash with 2.5mm balls+screws.
I have not seen one yet either. Would you be able to take a photo of the swash and post it?

Many Thanks.

Here we go.. also noticed the anti rotation/elev pin is longer too.







The old swash is toast so no chance of using it instead of the new one.

I haven't fitted it yet to check the geometry of the links, however i'm imagining they will be out a little now with the short balls.

Interested on this too, hopefully we'll hear from the Compass support members to see what's the official reason for this.

have they updated the anti rotation guide as well as the gyro plate??
Seems you have a mystery on your hands with the swash as no-one from compass is offering and explanation yet.
