Hirobo Controller

His Hirobo is set up using (2) servos per head, modified swash plate with the Bavarian Demon.

Ya. What he said!

Mark helped with the swash plate setup and Sandy "Mr. Tandem" provided some invaluable advice. Hovers very nicely. Did a few turns in the small space and it handled very nice. She picks up forward speed quickly!! Need to get it outside and spread its wings a bit to see if she really is setup properly.

Later flights I was taxing it around on it's "hind legs" so ground handling was very good, did some longish rolling takeoffs with ease, and preformed a couple of tight turns. No white knuckle moments with 4 flights. So pretty confident full forward flight/turns/circuits will be a pleasant experience.
