Blade mCX mods

Got my BNF mCX today, bound her to DX7.. It flies great. It is very stable. A bit too stable for my liking. Forward stick? It will fly 1-2 ft and then stop. There is no such thing as forward flight, this thing is just cutely hanging around

So.. First mod is quite obvious. I removed the flybar and sanded off approx. 1/4 of the flybar weights, making those cylinders look like paddles (shape doesn't really matter, I was after weight/momentum reduction, not shape). Re-balanced the flybar by carefully sanding on the "heavy" side, then reinstalled it back.

Voilą! If you let go the sticks, it is still super stable, but once you give it some good elevator and add a little throttle.. Zzzzzzzap!

..Any other mods?
