Default Swash Plate

After 200 flights I crashed (yet again...) and broke the back link on my Swash plate - just replace with stock part? Or is there something better?
Thanks!

Metal ones are great. Less slop and more precise. By the way I'm selling a Rakon swash plate and many other goodies in the electric helis section of the classifieds (shameless plug, lol).

alot of guys will comment im sure in this. i have the MH alum swash and it works out
good. cant comment on the rakon or the other brands. def has less slop and seems to
be more precise imo.

I also have the MH alum swash and I like it. I was going to pick up one for a buddy of mine that got me into this hobby(he's still flight stock) however , I was told by the hobby store that they couldn't place the order due to its not in production anymore(that doesn't mean you can't find one) . They stated that they are/have made a new versions for the V1 and V2 availible sometime around July (also there's supposed to be a nice shiney red one for the V2)

If anyone has other info and I'm incorrect please let me know

This seems unlikely as the stock swash is the same for the V1 and V2 so I don't see how MH could make a different one for each. What they have done is to market a swash that has provision for a rear mounted anti-rotation bracket but that will fit the V1 and V2

I'll check that out when I get home.......work doesn't like us streaming things on their network. Something about being unproductive....

MH only sells the x-swash now. Same thing but the AR pin is on back. Comes with side AR pin if needed.
