well, got a extended head and shaft, xtreme 12mm one. the extension is the head, not the shaft!
fitting was straightforwards enough, although now in flying i get tbe. took off assembly, and checked for straightness on a friends lathe set-up, apeears to be drilled straight enough, so unsure of cause?
will try shorter flybar i think, and go from there.
also, main shaft bearings need replacing, so could be contributery to problem, so new ones on order.

Well here's my e-bay bargain, in all its glory. cost £45 and flies pretty well! really wanted a v4, but this is a good start. came with xtreme blades, 4 lipo's, xtreme v3 package, even a nice shiny flight case! clearly the previous owner had spent some money here, the only thing i added was the led flybar. however this needed balancing out, but all good now. pics here show the other e-bay bargain i got hold of for my mate shane, a co-comanche.
this hovers beautifully, but has little control due to lopped-off servo arms, so not enough throw on the controls!
