T-REX 450
FBL Upgrade. DFC head or regular head conversion.

I am converting my 450 to FBL using a BeastX. I'm still a beginner and donít need the increased performances of the DFC head but it's cheaper to just buy the drop in DFC head than the pieces to convert and existing head.

So the question is will the DFC head work for me or is it going to make the heli to fast and hard to control? My thought is pitch is pitch and control input in control input the rest is just mostly marketing so just go with the DFC head.


Thanks,
Dave

I just converted my pro to DFC and my sport to v2 FBL. I don't really notice a big difference. I would get the one you want. The feel is going to come from how you tune the fbl controller mostly. I haven't crashed them yet so I dont know how each one holds up to crash damage. If I had to pick something, I say the DFC head feels stiffer (a bit) when it gets beat on.

I just put a dfc head on my Pro with a 7200 BeastX. I only have a few flights but it was very smooth. I was impressed for the short time I flew it. Unfortunately I had a light crash and bent an arm coming off the dfc grips. I was able to bend it straight, but I don't really trust it anymore. Kind of dissapointed that the first small crash bent the arm instead of popping the link off. Hopefully it will hold up better next time.

If you are going to get the DFC head I'd recommend the DFC swash to go with it. Having the ball links turned 90 deg makes sense for this design.

Funky,

interesting. I think I would prefer that to what I've had happen on two occasions with the flybared head. Even in light crashes I've sheared the ball off the grip leaving a broken piece of thread in the grip. The geometry of the arms would make that imposable. Those arms are $15 cheaper than the grips.
