Lama V4: Increasing Flybar to Blade Grip Cyclic Pitch transmission

I previously did this mod on walkera 4#3B and was successful.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1127892


The idea in simple mechanical sense is to extend the ball links on the flybar outwards.



This increases the pitch angle on the grips on a per flybar pitch angle. This as a result increases the amount of stabilization correction from the flybar to the blades allowing even small shaft tilts to be corrected.


As done on a LAMAV4;

* This was done by taking the ball linkages from an old flybar and transfer them to the Lama V4's flybar.






And a short test video;

As always EQMOD, I love your vids, both the indoor and outdoor. Dang, I wish I had another V4. When I'm done testing some blades and blade grip stiffeners for a member, I am considering a double flybar link. That indoor flight was incredible..great left/right AIL. Heck, great flying...PERIOD
Thank you (Again) for sharing,
Mike.

Don't know if I mentioned this in this thread before (in this case again):


Awesome job EQMOD!!!

Would you tell me if you are using the stock transmitter for your double swash plate helis or did you do the mods and use a "more professional" (I didn't want to say "real") transmitter (spektrum, futaba, hitec ....)??

Thanks,
Sven

Hi Sven,

i am using a futaba transmitter although the stock transmitter will do just fine.
