Default Rakon Swash w/anti-rotation Guide

I noticed Rakon has a new swash setup in stock. Has anyone tried this yet? It seems to have a better design than Microheli's (at a glance).

Got my swash in yesterday seems there was a delay in production due to some bad bearings as I was told by the vendor. I have flown about 10 packs so far with the new swash and I think it is GREAT.

Bearing is super smooth like butter nothing binding even slightly. It fits very well on the main shaft doesn't seem tight or loose at all. The little mini drill it comes with to install the rear AR bracket is kind of small especially if you have fat fingers like me. But, if you just take your time the plastic of the frame is very soft so it is not tough to get through at all just a bit of patience to make sure everything stays straight.

The flight characteristics are very drastically improved IMO. Flips are now very straight no drifting to one side or the other. To my surprise piros are also much much better. Before I could do about 3 piros before the heli went off like crazy. With this swash and rear AR bracket I am able to do at least 6-8 in a row the piros are nice and tight. I haven't had any major crashes yet so durability has yet to be determined but it can't be any worse than stock.

All in all I am very happy with my purchase. I picked up some lynx blades at the same time and together with the swash my nano now feels much more responsive and precise. A couple pics attached sorry for the poor quality but all I have is my crappy phone.

Hope everyone has a great weekend of flying.
