When you move the cyclic stick you are now telling the FBL unit to give a certain rate of turn, not a specific angle of swash - the FBL unit usually give lots of angle for a short period of time to get the rate of rotation requested. This is one of the reasons why FBL can be much more agile then FB, and why they need better servos.
The way in which it behaves on the bench is very different to how it behaves in the air - you have to forget some of the Flybar based ideas unfortunately
I took the plunge and went ahead to fly it. It was ok, everything was fine. When the bird is in the air, I could feel the big difference between a rate of 100% vs a rate of 70%, even though there are no differences on the bench.
Thanks Mike for your explanation.
