Some years ago we found Tyler flies on a whole new level, when he is mad usally at me telling him he is flying like a school girl.Some pilots need to be "Gassed Up" to reach their potential on the flight line. Like a football team in the locker room, before they hit the field.

So I painted it on one of his canopies to remind him

He liked it and adopted it as a way to fly, a mindset or state of being, in moderation.

He also like me likes Metallica and in the late 80's Jame's Hatefield had a sticker on his guitar "Fueled By Hate", so this is also very fitting.

Please dont mis-construe this there is pletty of hate in the world, but this has nothing to do with that in any way.

Hope this clears things up.

i respect your decision on "fueled by hate".....

but i think many people would agree with me that something like "fueled by passion" would be much more appropriate.....

Thank you for sharing this simple low cost flybarless head HybridHeli! You are THE MAN!! I just ordered an SK360 and was determined to find a way to use my stock 700 head. Perfect timing to find your threads!

Is your washout base on the 700 head locked like the 600? I couldn't tell. Also, I'd really like to get a copy of your SK360 settings/file to use as a starting point. That would be a huge help as I'm new to flybarless. All the best with testing!

Thanks again and rock on!

Hello, it will be my pleasure to share my info with you.

The washout on the 600 has to be flipped upside down and held in place with a 10mm shaft collar. The 700 washout base however was tapped with TWO 3mm set screws. I used the set screws from a t-rex 450 (use TWO of them).

PM me you email address and the file will be on the way. Just let me know is you are using 1.10 (.sk2) or 1.06 (.sk1).

By the way, BOTH helis fly like dreams! (I can track down the field runway hands off the cyclic)

Since there is so much demand...here are my settings.
The only advise I can offer is be sure to have a good set of digital servos. I am using ACE DS1313 with 173oz-in and .13 seconds and 6V.
The 700 can hold in plane like a tail gyro holds the tail. There is just enough gain to negate the use of expo.

You ROCK extremely hard!!....and I thank you kindly sir.

"The 700 washout base however was tapped with TWO 3mm set screws."

Where exactly are those set screws located? Did you have to drill 2 holes?

I'm so excited about all the advantages of this flybarless setup! Great hearing about all the success with your mods! I'll give you the version once I get my SK360. Thanks again buddy!

Hey, in the pic you can see the tap straight ahead. Sorry about the fuzzy image as the camera cannot focus that close (1 inch!). The second tap is diagonally opposite this one. Yes you do have to drill the holes then tap them.

I see, thanks! I'll probably have time over the weekend to do this mod and have the head ready for the SK360.
