I found it.

This is a double arm follower but you'll only use one side. The follower arm will be right up against the bottom head collar and will need a little filing on the side that touches the collar so you can get the full range of movement that you need. I'll try to send a pic. The Vario one would look better.

I am entering the parameters in the ESC. I switched to a Castle Ice2 HV120 just to be on the safe side.

However it asks for the final gear ratio. I seen on RC Helicoperfun.com he got 14:1. Is that correct?

I got the turnbuckles from Davinci today. However they seem small in diameter. I checked the specs on the website and they are 2.2mm.

So I ordered the Lunsford 3mm turnbuckles.

They are strong enough and will fit the ball link size that you need for the Century head.. 3mm is to big for the ball link. You can drill the link but it will weaken the link to much.

Their good. You'll need to add a ball for the follower to the swash.

Got the 56mm turnbuckles on. But something doesn't look right. I have tried clocking the head but they seam too long.

Or is that for the longer Goblin main shaft

They are to long.. I thought you were getting the 44mm. With the 44mm you can make the links to 65mm tip to tip to get you to the pitch range you need to be in.
The angle of the link to swash will be 90 degrees forward of the blade grip [advanced] when you lock down the foll0wer. So facing the back of the mechanics you need to put one blade grip 90 degrees to the right side or 3:00 oclock. The swash ball link for that grip needs to be directly behind the elevator swash ball, then tighten follower.. This is setting the mechanical phasing.

Ordered a Goblin 700 main shaft for the mod. Found a 12" brass tube at the local Ace Hardware store. Fits perfectly on the Roban main shaft.

Waiting on the new 44mm turnbuckles to come in as well.

I don't know bud.. maybe you should give the Roban shaft a try and not worry about doing the mod unless you have issues with the roban shaft. The brass you got is more then likely SAE Standard and not metric. You need a correct 12mm fit or there will be slop. I am getting the 12mm ID 15mm OD bushings this week that TXMikeBG is using. I can send you one if you need it.

It is tight, I measured I.D and its 11.96mm, O.D is 12.76mm.

Do you think this will work? Or is it too thin of a wall?

I just want to to have a good flying machine and have no troubles...
