I didn't think I would, but I will be trying it with the copterx3000 and as a test bed didn't want the gyro to screw up because the head binded.

If you reduce the travel of the swash there would be no binding.

Thanks guys! I'm really happy with it... as you can tell from my celebration at the end of the flight! I was skimming my music library for good music for the video - I almost always mute my videos because of the Peanut Gallery and wind noise - and thought Candlebox would be a good change. Glad you guys liked it!

Prescott Valley.

A little forced perspective trickery.
