i mean... i just can't be the first one to think of this... just staring at the heli last night... and notice something, the bell mixer arms have a short side and a long side, the short side is attached to the head while the long side is attached to the swash plate. So I said to myself, is it possible for me to increase the bell-hiller ratio? ie increase the effect the blades have on cyclic per amount the paddles have. (this increase cyclic and is very good for people like me who intends to do mild 3D with the blade before going up to a rex) And then I realize, what if I switch the mixer arms around so that the long side is attached to the head and the short side is attached to the swash. This will increase leverage and thus increasing cyclic response. The long side of the mixer arm will have a chance of simply ‘touching’ the paddle control frame push rods at extreme negative possible, but this simple ‘touching’ will not provide any ill effects and will not bind (when it does touch, the paddle control frame pushrod will simply rotate alittle bit and prevent binding).

I have flown it and yes, it provide a much more responsive bird. Yes, it will make it more unstable and thus not recommended for newbies. The weather is real bad (sunny, but windy and –20C) and so I can’t comment on the flip or roll rate or how it handles in fff.

If this is a CP/Pro and it sounds like it is then that might be ok - If it's a CP2 then it would probably become extremely sensitive and hard on the servos which may likely strip in crashes or maybe even in flight as the CP2 mixing arms have a lot of leverage that would be turned against the servos - It would probably also exagerate whatever slop is in the head/links making it difficult or impossible to track etc.

yep, it is a cp pro. i just flew it today, it will never be like a trex, without increase in headspeed, the stability was noticibaly less. circuits were less precise, something i still need to work on. i dun have any expo programmed in, but the roll rate was DEFINITELY faster. something i really like, but lipos don't seem to like the cold, as i was flying like -25C and the lipo has no power wat so ever.
