Default Virtuall flybar for AP applications?

I was just checking this out:

And it occurred to me that it might be possible to create a very smooth and stable AP heli using a system like this. The setup is $200 and that includes a heading hold gyro - so call it ~$60 over the cost of a 401. Looks like you need a new head too - at $179 for the Logo, so $240 to go this way.

The marketing blurb claims less sensitivity to wind, reduced drag, lighter total weight, and it brings you coffee. :wink:

Anyone played with one of these? Anyone want to speculate how much advantage (if any) this would bring to an AP ship?
