I see one servo, and a linkage from another.

I only see the rear servo stuck into the side, with its arm going to the rear of the swash...
I don't see any trace of front servos, only the ball-links, and those could/would be fixed in what we're speculating it "is".


CrippleCopter!

EDIT:

And how, the Double Horse 9100 helicopter has a super-small diameter swashplate, and a large-diameter rotor disk ball base, as you see here. This means uber-gentle response, and sluggish danger reaction ability.
The Hot-Dog thing to do here is swap in a larger swash.

Maybe the front servo is hidden by the canopy if it has one. Too bad XHeli didn't show a photo of the air frame minus canopy like they did for other models in the past.

In this pic of the head, see the red wire, the linkage thats right near the wire is a servo linkage.

Water under the bridge.

I think this is a four-channel CP airframe dummy-down to 3 channel OP.
It is just that I figured that it would get more attention in that forum, guess my comments don`t count. Would have been nice for the single rotor forums to get a heads up.

That #9101 is an entirely different model.


EDIT:

The double Horse 9100 is an actual model, and it's found elsewhere.

I noticed that the description on that page also calls it a "3 channel" but there's that extra linkage. What gives?

Proof.

It's a real model- here it is a Ally-Blah-Blah.

It appears to be pretty well engineered and is a logical progression in product development. Many of us have been saying the self-stabilizing single rotor helis are replacing the coaxes, for some time. However, I fail to see why this would be a source of great excitement for the 3 channel fans. It will have the same complexity, durability and reliability issues as any existing 4 channel heli. It will handle like any other self-stabilizing FP heli with a 45° offset trailing flybar and Bell linkage. The "wild" performance (it can move faster than walking speed and can bank) and possibility of breakage is what turns off most 3 channel fans.

What defines success in this category is parts availability and how good the motors are. Gear driven tails are already obsolete.

It's obviously got fake front ball-links, folks.

It's a HobbleCopter.


EDIT:

The Double Horse 9100.
The "NEWS" here, is it's a "Hobby Grade" airframe from a cheapie maker, Double Horse, makers of the only recently "good" 9074 helicopters, apparently.

Looking for more pics...
If it doesn't have a servo attached to the front link, how do you suppose it moves forward and back?

It got to be 4ch. The tail is vertical and it's single rotor.

Well one fact remains, there are two linkages on the swash. Can't see why DH wouldn't go all the way, and design this as a 4 channel FP. They model is so new that there's no reviews on it.

There IS one servo in the back, it raises/lowers the back of the swash only, giving it fore/aft.
If you look close at all the pics, you see a dummy ball-link on each side of the front of the swash.



EDIT:

The Double Horse 9100 has a fairly decent sized motor, and with some weight reduction and gingerly flying, could last somebody quite a while.
