How to limit flybar pivot on the 400D.

Came up with a nice simple but fairly effective method of reducing the flybar pivot.

I had some O-ring cord of varying thicknesses laying around, so I took the flybar retaining cap off. The 400 is like most Walkera setups where a cap with vertical slots in it retains the flybar and limits how far the flybar pivots. I cut a piece of cord to the same width as the slots and cleaned the cap in acetone (it is a metal head) I used the trusty Loctite Prism (CA) to then glue the cord in place. Picture to follow at some later time once I get it "tuned".

This has reduced pivot by a reasonable amount and acts as a nice bump stop type damper. This weekend should prove interesting as with a bit of luck I will get the time to put it through its paces.
