Here they are kids.
The hole in the frame was not big enough for the bearings on the Elevator crank, so I had to use a rc car body reamer and opened up the holes to the proper size (8mm). It worked well, I just went slow and then finished with a jeweler's file.
I did a test hover and all seems to be well. It's nice to have everything tucked inside of the frames neatly.
I was able to increase my swash mix from 45,45,50, to 60,60,60. So I regained some resolution and have a tad more cyclic than before (around 8 degrees).

Looking really good there!

I might get the bell crank system myself to try, but i think i may just stick with the DTS since it suits my flying style a tad better.

P.S

I see you are also running the new metal linkages

After a day of flying I can say I like the way it flies with the bellcranks better than the direct drive. It feels more precise and give the heli a locked-in feel. I can also say that it feels like the heli tracks better in turns and rolls, as well as having a very locked-in flip.

I can just say overall that I like it better period.

It does fly a bit better with the Bell cranks. It makes for a more linear feel for sure.

Tracking, I really haven't noticed a big difference. I especially notice the difference on Piro Maneuvers, as it seems to have a more gradual feel, more linear, and precise. For straight line stuff, the direct drive is awesome. So it is a matter of preference.

I would recommend that every one try the Bell Cranks before forming an opinion, fly your buddy's and compare notes. I thought the heli really felt good with Direct, but when I installed the Bell Cranks, I was even happier.

I think its a matter of preference, but I myself really like them.

Hope this Helps
