I must confess my preference is for mechanical over CCPM, at least you can see the interaction and it is easier to setup. Plus my two E3 with VPUS looks so nice when the servos move .

hey simon, get rid of that ugly lump of a muffler and bolt on a Funtech, you won't regret it I've just started flying with it and I've never heard a muffler sound as nice as this, and I've flown a Zimmerman muffler before

I am actually going to try the new Hatori SB-17, and compare that with the MPII. I suspect the hatori will be quiter, but I will have to see if it significantly different. I have one E3 with the MPII, the new second E3 will have the SB-17, and I will decide later if I put an SB-17 on the first E3.

I have the Funtech in 1 EX2 and the Hatori in the other. Funtech beats Hatori hands down.

Try the (longer) Hatori version, not sure what part# (probably SB18) it was am using on my EX2, seems to beat Funtech hands down

... its like I'm on 30% nitro though I'm just using 15% (exaggerated though)

EX2 SSZ-III SWM vs HPM for F3C
I've been flying my EX2 SWM back to back with the HPM version. Both have the SSZ-III head and are identical except for the swash mode. I must admit I like the SWM a lot more!

too bad for me then!!

I just got another one and I won't be building it for a long time.

Do you prefer the SSZ-III over the SSR-VII? What about the Rudigeir modified SSR-VII underslung?

syndonitis,
I just followed the path of natural progression. I started with the stock SSR-VII, then tried the R/F and finally settled with the SSZ-III. I didn't like the SSR-VII because I'm no Hashimoto. The R/F was a very big improvement for me (actually a matter of personal preference, it doesn't mean the SSR-VII is no good because a lot of pilots use it successfully)over the SSR-VII. The R/F to the SSZ-III is hardly noticeable but I feel the more compact SSZ-III holds its 'tightness' better (the 2 feathering spindles on the R/F tend to loosen on the thrust bearings easily after some use/ abuse).

And then the shift to SWM. I love it!

Hi Junyi,
I epecially like how 'positive' the pitch/ colective command is. the heli responds to the transmitter throttle/ collective stick position almost instantaneously and stays put according to that position. When hovering, the yawing motion of the rudder/ tail rotor acts very independently from the cyclic which is very good when doing travelling pirouettes. In the aeros, the pitch is again very positive. The downside is that it takes away some of the smoothness at first but it is easy to cope with once you get the hang of it.

The hovering-it is 'numb' and control inputs take time to take effect so you kind if have to anticipate your corrections. More so when it gets windy. I actually spent a lot of time standing beside Mr. Hashimoto while he hovered and his thumbs never stopped moving albeit in very tiny imperceptible movements which did not seem noticeably translated to the heli itself.

When I was flying my EX2 with the SSR-VII, I had a hard time maintaining position over the cones and the heli would be all over the place during the travelling pirouettes. Height was also very difficult to control.

In the aeros however, the SSR-VII is among the best.

I must admit though, I've yet to try the SWM/ SSR-VII combination. That should be pretty neat.
