Magnetic Swashplate Leveling and Centering Tool

  • Sale
  • Regular price $9.99


Swashplate leveling and even pitch travel made easy.  This simple tool slides under the swashplate and positions it perfectly level and at the exact height for a perfect neutral pitch, with magnets ensuring it stays in position.  Use sub-trim to center your servos, then adjust servo-swash linkages so that the swashplate sits directly against the top of the tool.  Once that's done, you can then adjust your swash-grip linkages to the length required for exact zero pitch on the blades.  

With adjustable servo arms, it's even easier: loosen the clamping screws, push the swashplate down onto the tool, and adjust your servo-swash linkages until the arms are perfectly neutral, then lock the arms into position.

Please, remove before flight.  Do not try to fly with the tool installed, it will not end well.

Note that on some helis, depending on how your main shaft is shimmed, you may have a small offset from perfect neutral.  It's usually only a fraction of a millimeter and not enough to have any significant effect on pitch travel linearity/evenness, but you may choose to compensate for it by slightly adjusting all 3 swash linkages as needed once the swash is leveled first.

Due to the small size of the OMP M2/M1 versions, they are being manufactured by a third party in resin.  This is why they are more expensive than their size might suggest.  While it is possible to print them in FDM myself, I was not happy with the print quality at such a small scale.
