Nice: where did you buy the upgrades and what did it run ya. Was thinking of doing same to my 550. Really don't like the slop in the tail especially. Thanks

Okay, the swash definitely looks badass and will really get the balls in tight to the swash. Couldn't find it on anyone's list yet. Where'd you get it?

wow...i like that...im running the vbar on my 550 and with the 600EFL regular flybarless head...i had to use the KDE blade grip arms to get my numbers right...when i go DFC will this swash remedy that for me? no KDE blade grip arms?...they make arms for the DFC also, it would be nice to just use this swash and have perfect numbers for the vbar...any vbar users with this swash and stock DFC head?

Amazing that it's even much cheaper than the standard 600 swash.

You guys looking for these?

I just got them today and hope to get some testing on them soon....My birds are ready to go for the weekend so I won't be able to do anything with these until after the Holoday or after a Big Crash......which ever comes first.....

The new DFC swashplate solves the push rod angle in the V2?
Thanks in advance

That swash would most certainly work, as would the shorter swash balls for getting the resolution needed for some FBL controllers, but not sure if it will do much for the servo to swash linkage angle.

I just installed the tail slider and the push rod guide needs to be a little shorter. It makes the push rod flex up where the guide is... anyone else have the same issue? Not sure if this hurts it.

Is there any word if the new tail slider, DFC head and swash will be added to the future 550 kits as standard components?
