Get the stock Align part

Just kidding, but if it is bearing play, then the best bet would be to replace it.

The I2 swash is supposed to be serviceable, ie, you can replace the bearings in it (unlike the stock Align unit).

I'd pull it apart to see if anything's amiss anyway.

A video of the play may be useful.

Perhaps you should shoot an email to the manufacturer and see what he says about it?

I just noticed my stock Align swash plate has a lot of play in it also. The rotating portion has an uncomfortale amount of play. I haven't taken it off yet, but from the bottom, there are 2 notches as though it is installed with a "spanner" wrench. I'm hoping I can tighten it up or I'm looking at a new swash plate also. I only have about 50 flights on the 500?
