Believe he said 12 o 15mm as each side frame will accept different servos.

Left side of the frame can handle 12mm rudderservo.
Right side can handle 15mm rudderservo.

Love the look (including the tail fin) except for the landing gear ... it looks odd to me, but it's all in the ye of the beholder.

Love the shape of the canopy.

It does rob alot of power though, atleast on the Mini Protos.

I think my good old 450 has found a replacement.

Very cool looking design! And I for one am pleased to see it has a name that makes sense (360) instead of 450.

Looks great to me! I do have a question, though. Batteries. They're underslung in the nose and not mounted between the frames under the main shaft, correct?

Definitely some interesting ideas here. Things I like:

* Compass head links, no swash follower
* Good motor cooling
* No boom supports - awesome!
* Cyclic servo placement, should be easy to install
* Low main shaft

Things I would change:

* Strongly prefer one piece aluminum main grips
* Different landing gear
* Longer nose in the canopy for visibility
* Cooling hole in canopy for ESC

Nice work!
Daniel

I am assuming a rigid head will give insane cyclic response and fast stops.
what are the drawbacks?why are there not more rigid heads?

off the top of my head I would think you will have to run really high headspeeds as a heli with stiff dampening(sp?) will wobble and act funny with low headspeed so i can only imaging what NO damping will do.will also most likely be really touchy at center

The dampening will come from the carbon blade grips.
