I figured out what my problem is. The cx3x1000 can't operate the swashplate in heading hold mode.

The cx3x1000 is good for what is costs, but my helicopter is tail heavy, and that's why I was having problems. It keeps drifting. I tried raising the gain, but it just starts to oscilate.

I was fooled by the mCPx into thinking that every FBL behaves that way, since I can stick a bunch of heavy tail motors and it still flies with no drift, I guess not with the cx3x1000.

Maybe in the future, there will be a firmware update with a fix for that, like a hiller decay adjustment.

So in conclusion, my helicopter with the cx3x1000 flies about as good as it did with the flybar, not exactly the rock solid locked in feeling one would expect from a FBL gyro. Edit: Also, there is no way to adjust the phasing.
