This may be an option: http://www.ehirobo.com/copterx-cx450...-450-heli.html

It's probably not the highest quality, but certainly pushes it into the realm of affordable experimentation. piper92, i think in your previous post you were explaining a method of locking down the degrees of freedom of the rotor head but i'm not sure i understand.

is there maybe an aftermarket tail rotor part that I could adapt to the axel in the above listed piece in lieu of a multi-DOF swash plate? that may be the simplest option.
I was thinking of turning a non-DFC head into a form of a DFC head, but then removing cyclic. Pizzano's post, the second pick. The head fits on the shaft, and a sleeve goes over this, followed by a screw to secure the head to the shaft. This sleeve has ball links, so I bet it could be modified to control collective with a single servo.
