I honestly don't think it matters. If I can ever get my hands on some more a TDR comes with couple of pieces of a teflon-like heat shrink that is slick not grippy like regular heat shrink. It shrinks down super tight to the tail rotor pushrod and that part is what slides through the pushrod guides on a TDR. It would work perfect on a L500-L800 tail rotor push rod and maybe even the L400 I forget the tail rotor pushrod diameter on it.

That is what I need on mine. It works fine with two supports and there is no friction, but the TDR is like buuuuuutter!

I used that on my Logo 500. Thanks for reminding me - I'll add that to the 700 as well.

any idea what it is ? link ?

I'd like some also.

My 800 rod is partially sanded down and is a bit smaller in diameter after 60 flights

Synergy helis come with something like that: http://www.fblrotors.com/Tail-Push-R...eve_p_158.html

It can't hurt of course, unless you get glue in the bearings...which is why we tried it without, and never looked back.

Could use heatshrink either side of bearing?

Yea, that's it. I got mine from ReadyHeli years back. Try searching for "teflon heat shrink tubing".

Got the bag today. Yup - today! It has taken forever to get it. Both FedEx and the national postal service took their time...

As I promised, here are some details. It does fit. Actually it fits perfect - maybe even a little too perfect, as the L700X filled the whole thing with no room to spare. If you decide to get one - let's just hope there's no big production tolerances. I don't believe so, though.

That being said, the quality is excellent - really top notch. The outer fabric seems very solid, while as the inner padding is pretty soft. Nice design too.

Why does the manual show female bullet connectors for the motor side of the ESC motor connections? I assume this is an error and male bullets go on the motor side as usual?

I'm with you. The male side of the connectors traditionally go on the motor side. All ours are set-up that way. I guess it's and error, although since it ultimately doesn't matter, I guess it's not "technically" incorrect But certainly not the standard.

Thanks Dave. I just wanted to make sure there was no reason Mikado showed it that way.

It has a 13m swashplate leveler, and I am wondering if it might work on the L700.

Hope that helps.

Really sorry you weren't happy with my tool. Once you install it and give it a turn to level it, then turn the main shaft and make sure it is level, manually level it if need be turning the main shaft to verify it is perfectly leveled. Once it is level, you can now use it to level your swash. I added the main shaft turning part to the instructions since I had a few people who were having a hard time getting repeatability. If that doesn't work out for you, please let me know and I'll take care of you.

I just used the 12 mm version on my new Rush and it worked great.

I have been using Rick's tools on all my 7 helis with perfect results and could not have been happier. Just follow the instructions and you are set to go.

A while ago, Rick sent me a prototype for a new under swash leveling tool to try. Free of charge!

The new leveler features a clip-on piece, which makes the leveler a lot more rigid compared to the previous design. See attached pictures.

Thank you, Rick!


Best regards,

Best regards,
My pleasure. I strive to take care of my customers. I had fun toying with a different design.

People have been happy with the original design once they realize how it used so I haven't even advertised that one. Thanks for posting.
Rick
