CCPM is a different arrangment of servos, in turn it moves the swashplate
differently. They are setup (usually) right around the main mast and with
this setup, (although usually requiring some special brakets), has much less
slop in the overall system. Becuase all of the servos, are connected
DIRECTLY to the swashplate, meaning, they use only 1 conecting rod. So
there are no unneeded ball joints and plastic arms all over the place. and
witht he 3 servos setup 120 degrees apart, they control the evevator,
aileron, and collective. by all moving in sync, they can tilt and push the
swashplate into submission. :)
