    Im looking at upgrading my 2axis to brushless and getting the mount and legs needed to make it a 3axis as well and putting a Raidan on the pan axis. My issue is I do ALOT of single man flying and wondering if there is a way to have the Radian "Lock" the pan axis to the nose of the aircraft so when i turn the craft it will follow and hold it in that spot. I don't want to have to "tie down" the gimbal as other people have said they've done as i don't want vibrations going into the gimbal. Thank for any help.

    Most folks pull the power to the servo and then use velcro or tape to strap the back boom to the number 5 boom. Don't know of any other method having been mentioned. Also no one has commented that the strap method caused vibration problems.

    What about slop? Wont the be some movement on the pan axis are the craft moves. What about running the servo wire to an unsed port on the receiver? It would give power to the servo to hold it in place and as long as you don't hit that channel on the transmitter it shouldn't move. Anyone willing to give it a try?
