Dude, I think it takes all seven channels just for the head Shocked
I can borrow you my multiplex for that, it has lots of extra switches and channels for all that cool stuff i can't figure out. Plus Roger D assured me it was the heli radio of choice Very Happy

Don't mean to be the turd in the punchbowl but...

That's cool and all but you will need to learn how to balance blades. I'm not sure how easy it will be to find 3 pair of blades close enough to each other in terms of balance. The big issue though is when you crash now you have 5 blades to replace instead of just 2. Yes, you may need some sort of stabilizer to get it to feel right.

On the bright side, flying a head like this doesn't require any more radio channels...and it looks cool.

2 blades and a flybar is what I am going to do, just for simplicity and reliability.

I did run across some video a couple of years ago of some guy who was experimenting flying 3d with a multiple blade head. It was nuts but he was doing it. This was before flybarless controllers came to be. He said the control was really sluggish.
