Default How do I split the mCP X Swash

I have a few mCP X swash plates that have broken some of the outer horns but the inner bit of the swash is fine.

Any suggestions on how to "split" the swash? i.e. remove the centre bit with bearing and inner plastic bit, so that I can use it on other swash outer bits that are still ok.

Hope my question makes sense.

I think the plastic of the centre piece is molded over the underside of the bearing, so you might have to break that to get it out. After that, it's probably not going to stay in its transplanted bearing so you'll have to glue it in and hope. Save yourself the trouble and upgrade to a CNC swashplate (Microheli or Rakon) and be done with breaking them.
