I am having problems with a microbeast on a RC-Tec SkyShark (450 clone). The cyclic servos are located directly below the swash. My problem is there is not enough room for the servo throw that the Microbeast wants. When adjusting the cyclic swashplate limit (Setup L), I can just make it work with the limit turned all the way down (no led). Because of the way the servos are mounted, the servo arms hit the lower frames at low stick, full cyclic. What will the Microbeast do if I fly it this way? I don't see any way that I will be able to get the geometry that the Microbeast wants. The other thing I was thinking, was to move each servo arm up a spline. This would give me more wiggle room, but the servo arms would not be at 90 degrees at 0 pitch. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks
Alan

How much collective are you running?
I have a 450Prov2 and a 450L Dominator.
Both running BeastX
I can get +/- 14 on collective, and still get the blue light to just come on with cyclic limit with no binding.

Thanks, with creative use of the moto-tool, I was able to move the servos out (away from the frame) and mod the servo arms so I now have a blue led. Hope to have everything else done soon. Can't wait to try it. My first FBL heli
