The top blades do however seem to move a lot when following the flybar. I would have thought this free movement could be limited to a certain degree which may in turn reduce the efect wind has on the helo.

Feel free to join in and comment.
Been done for the smaller Lamas in Germany by Skytec (if I understand correctly what you suggest):
They make a rotorhead called "Speed" in which the angle the flybar can have in reference to the rotor axis is limited to a certain maximum degree. (Because of the design of their rotorheads there is practically NO sideways (lef/right) flybar movement possible anyway and with this particular rotor head the up/down movement gets limited.
