Kordon, that is the swash plate lock Gaui# 20470 that used to come with the hurricane flybarless conversion kit.

Has anyone found a swash lock plate alternative? This item is no longer available so I'm pondering this X4 or X5 headblock and related parts approach, but I want to stay with my stock Hurricane blade grips if possible to save money.

The early Trex 500s had one that was similar (but better) and used a 8mm main shaft also - this is what I used on my Hurricane after the thread in the Gaui one stripped. Part number H50127
