Here is a simple mod you can make to get the large pitch ranges that are popular with some of the hot 3D setups the pros are flying.
The stock Swift bell mixers are 1:1. this mod uses the bell mixers from the Swifts big brother, the Raven, which are closer to 1.5:1 ratio.
This will directly increase the collective pitch range and the cyclic pitch together.
You need HI3189A Raven bell mixer set. Also will need 4 3X7 bearings as the stock swift uses 3X6.

This is how it looks installed on the head.

Needless to say you will want to check all linkages for binding and centering with this setup. Radio setup may need tweaking. The extreme pitch ranges this can provide will also be a lot harder on your motor/ESC/battery. Blade torque load increases exponentially with pitch angle. Most of the experts who run this setup get their batts at a discount LOL.
You will find your flight times shorter and temps hotter. Watch it !
