I would not use the DFC for F3C. Driving the swash with the DFC configuration places a side load on the dampeners in the head. As you change headspeeds for various components of the F3C routine, hovering versus upstairs, the load on the dampeners will change. This will also slightly change the head geometry and make the FBL controller do more compensation. There is no functional difference in the heads between the bottom and middle picture. Both use a dedicated swash driver. The replaceable grip arms on the lower picture may be helpful in a crash.

I did a little testing with the DFC head for f3c and was unable to have the model sit well at lower headspeeds; aerobatics abs rpm's above 1600 were fine.
