Tail drive and tail assembly is up... For ease of video I will leave the tail off and do cyclic servo install, setup, electronics, etc and come back and do mounting the tail assembly to the frames.

More posted....... Servo wheel selection... Folks this is super important to understand how Century designed the CCPM bell cranks on this heli and to get the proper servo arms so you dont have interactions!

Getting the servos right mechanically is something I always stress and I think getting it right here will make the heli fly better in the end and reducing having to tweak radio setting to remove interactions.

Let me know what you think!

Yup, servo install video works now. But now the servo wheel video is linked to the servo install video.

Bob with regards to servo arms for the elevator there is a better solution when trying to find a factory arm that will work. Futaba makes large aluminum arms that can be drilled exactly for what you need. The top gold one is perfect and I have seen the longer 2 arms (purple) be used by drilling them out for the Swift. Nice and strong too.

Yea, I am aware of the metal arms and have used them before on Nitros.

I just wanted to show people what was needed for servo arms STOCK.
Keep watching and I will show my final Futaba stock solution. It is pretty good. I made my own arm from a BIG wheel.

What about JR? Any ideas what people did here?

Also so you know those red X arms for Hitech are hard to find and dont come with most servo choices. It's there only wheel that will work too. Same problem some of the Trex600 people are having as it needs the red X arms too.

It's very odd the swift was design around none standard arms????
