So the last mechanics part but probably not leased was main rotor parts upgrade and tail blades - more about tail blades later on.

Flasher/Chaos swashplate was so hard moving at the central bearing I have lost any hope for using it. By changing swashplate I changed also main shaft and ball joints.

Articles used:
- Swashplate; ... xc-05.html
- ball joints; ... h2031.html
ALIGN main shaft for TREX 600E/N article: H60159T
SpinBlades asimetrical 105mm scale blades

Rotor head dampening was too hard by stock dampers so I have changed the plastic for o-rings, the softer ones even softer than ALIGN gray solution. I bought them localy from company producing them . On the picture are dimensions 7x3mm are the right ones for Trex600 main rotor head.

So that is information about majority of mechanical upgrades. I do plan to use a scale main rotor head, but regarding that I still need to decide on solution. I will use one or two entire posts just regarding that part,....

Next taste of what I want heli to look like at the end of this build
