Awful forecast, so a maintenance day for me. First I finished the discharger. Then I retired the orange Yak and moved the Rx to the blue one.
I thought I had a wonky swash on the A but it turned out to be a bent mainshaft. Also found the main grips didn't rotate freely. I opened them up and the thrust bearing cages had turned to iron fillings. Replaced those and it all seems good again. It will be interesting to see if I get more out of the Rx pack now.
Raining all day tomorrow, so will finish setup on the B. Hopefully some mid-week flying next week.
