Question Swashplate linkage

Okay, so still a newbie. But I replaced my LRH and swashplate with the alluminun upgraded one. So a question to those CX2 flyers out there. Does it matter which way the linkage attaches back to the LRH and swashplate? I noticed that there are two different size slots on there. Which way is up and which one is down? Also, is there a right way or a wrong side to the linkage?

I'm new to this stuff too but I tried switching it to see if it made a difference and i didn't notice it at all... So maybe it doesn't matter. I'm not a pro though so I could be wrong.

The larger slot should be towards the top of the heli. It allows movement between
the swashplate and the lower rotor head.

Thanks dude! I've been flying with it facing the other way with no problems so far. But I'll switch them around and give it a try.

Thanks again!
