Question
Honey Bee King swash problem

Time to pick your brains, those of you that have at one time worked on a Honey Bee King. I know it's old, etc., but that's not the issue at hand...

My rotor control arms appear to be binding when the swash is tilted. My battery times went to nill- I first thought it was my ESC, until I accidentally noticed that if I manually spun the rotor shaft with the swash inclined, the control arms would bind and force the swash to level out. It seems the servos are working hard against this binding, which is causing the battery to prematurely go kaput. I have the stock plastic control arm setup...I am at a loss. If I disconnect the arms from the head, the effect goes away

I suspect that something is incorrectly set up in the head, feeding back through the arms. Straight main shaft, new parts thru. Thoughts?

Closing the question...

Okay- after a few days and zero replies, I figure that a) no one has an idea, or b) no one is interested. SO- I'll take this one off the list.
