I spent a lot of time over the long weekend beating on my poor little MCX, trying nose-in landings on an elevated 8" x 8" helipad, backward circles and figure 8s, etc. There were some, er, "unintended contact incidents" as a result. Anyway, I was chasing the trim around all weekend wondering why I could not get a steady hover, until I took a good look at the swash and realized the anti-rotation pin somehow popped out of the guide. Oops.:o Yeah, that'll cause issues. At least I know that will pop apart before breaking in an impact. Side note, the trim is holding steady now...
