Default Rotorhead - "Can someone help?"

I'm trying to figure out if there are some pieces missing in my T-Rexs kit. So far there were screws and a cracked swash plate that I needed to replace, for free of course, but as I'm setting up the linkage rods I think I am missing a few.

Can some one show me some good pics of the head set up and also advise how many linkage rods are on the head? I am going from a Axe CP to a T-Rex and although I have built RC cars for many years, a heli is more complicated because you have to get everything right to avoid mishaps.

1 more question. Are the illustrations in the manual of the linkage rods close to accurate? I used them as a guide to set linkage rod lengths.


Thanks everyone.

go to this post. It shows a copter x head but they are the same.
Its the only one I could find right now.
The measurments for the rods in the manual are a good starting point.

These are great JBolt! I realized that the kit I bought are missing a few pieces. None major but it sucks to find that's what my problem was. I need to get a linkage for the rotor that wasn't in the box. Other than that, the heli came out pretty good for my 1st build.

I'll post pics once I paint it.
