Double Horse 9116 swashplate separating mid-flight?

Forgive me if I've got the terminology wrong, but I'm having a problem where the part of the swashplate that rotates separates from the part which receives the control inputs mid-flight. Here is a pic of what's happening: http://i.imgur.com/TsqluM1.jpg

This happened a few times after a hard landing when I first started, but now it's happening every time I lift off. Does anyone know how to fix this for good?

The bearing seemed loose, so I used a pair of needle-nose pliers to make sure it was properly seated. This time the swashplate stayed in place until the landing at least... guess I'll just order a replacement one.

I had the same thing, a new swash plate fixed it - I bought a few cos they are handy to have as a spare.

I had the same problem, soldering iron fixed the problem. I'll post a pick later when I get home.
