how much cyclic slop do you guys put up with? I did some maintenace on my bee this evening replacing the black plastic " I think delron" bushings in my walking beams with some smaller id aluminum bushings, moving the stick on the ground the stick is way less sloppy. is this ok or should I put plastic bushings back in there? my bee responds like a cessna on the cyclic, not like the typical youtube video where the guys hand never seems to move. I might have removed 2 inches of slop at the top of the cyclic stick before the rotor moves! :eek:

Try some of the brass bushings available in the aircraft supply catalogs. I think your aluminum bushings would wear pretty quickly.
