    Thank you for your help Xviper!
    This afternoon I managed to bend the rod back. If necesarry in the future, I now know that the rod can be removed from the nacelle.
    Hopefully I can fly again soon, after the current corona related restrictations are over.

    Regards,
    Paul

      That's the way I usually do it - bending it while on the plane. If not for taking this second plane apart, I would not have done it that way. Having the rod out by itself, I can tell you that the whole rod is very soft and easily bent on a rod bender of with 2 pairs of channel locks. I finalized the straightening by lightly pounding it on a wooden surface with a hammer, while rolling it.

        I've been flying this every day that I can get out to the field (weather is a bit "iffy" right now). This video is from this morning's flight. It was near perfect in every way. Hovers around great, transitions to and from airplane mode was smooth and drama-less. Landings are also pretty good, except for wrestling with ground effect and wind. I'm getting better at it each time.

          That's pretty good flight time for a 4000mah 4s pack. I may get that battery. It will replace the Turnigy 3200mah 4s pack. I haven't flown it since last summer. Now that the weather is warming up a little, I'll take it out of storage. I only fly skidders generally in Winter. Good piloting skills xviper, keep it up bro!👍👊👍

            I think I could have flown for another minute or 2, maybe more. The batteries I used for this video were Gens Ace, 45C, 3800mah. One came down with 49% remaining and the other came down with 65% remaining. I don't remember which one was in the flight in the video. I've used the Admiral 4000's and the HobbyKing Graphene 3000's in the past and I must admit that the Gens Ace gives the best performance and flight times in this plane, although I wouldn't hesitate to use any of them in the V-22.
