Heads up

Next up was the main rotor assembly. Slowly worked from the swash up. The kamasa head assembles much as the stock one accept for the metal blade grips. The metal blade grip had to be heated in the oven to install the radial bearings for a tight fit.

The washout arms and the bell-hiller mixing levers have 2 holes on each side of the pivot point. They can be adjusted to give different pitch range to suit different flying style.
Red dampeners and green ultra light paddles used instead of stock ones.
Kasama tail feels solid and no slop.Hands were starting to ache after all that screwing. lol. The mechanics part is done. Up next will be the electronics setup...
