Default Swash link rubbing

Greetings,

I am putting a FBL head on my x50 and the new ball links (both on the grip to swash rods and on the swash driver) BARELY rub the lower swash plate. If I sand a flat spot on the bottom of the links (would not take much) would that create a weakness issue of significance? Anyone ever had the need to do this? Thanks in advance.

Yes it will cause a weak area and if bends in that area under stress it will let go eventually. I do not have experience doing this but I've seen tail push rod break from grit in the rod guide weakening an area

Was 'fraid of that...I'll put the thunder tiger ones back on the swash end. Thanks!

To whomever moved this, I looked for a "FBL head" forum and a "ball link" forum and did not see one. Since this issue could arise on any helicopter and not just the x50 I chose not to post it in the x50 forum. Thanks.
