Default help please... super noob :(

i recieved my rkh swashplate but when i install it the flybar and main blades are right on top of each other. keep taking it apart and going off the images from here
http://www.e-fliterc.com/Products/Pr...ProdID=BLH3180 but the only way i can screw everything in and have the main blades and flybar not lined up with eachother is if i have the flybar upside down.



am i doing something wrong?

They really should put an "UP" arrow on that anti-rotation collar. I'll bet there are more folks than not who have installed that sucker upside down at least once.

Remember, if there's one wrong way and one right way to do something, you'll always do it the wrong way first...It's the law

So does the RKH - and that's the one I've got now as I'm also a member of the UDCC (Upside Down Collar Club)

Im sorry.. all anti rotation collar questions must now be submitted in triplicate to UDCC club president Heli-Cat.

They will be passed to committe and we will get back in 10 working days... unless of course the flying weather is good then your shit out of luck


Oh no....


BTW i believe its trial and error unless you mark it before you take it off
