It was a pretty easy convert. I replaced the ball link on the swashplate going to the bladeholder. To get better value on the cyclic gain. I replaced the stock ball with a brass ball I found in my stash. This decreased the radius by 1mm.

Got some help from MrMel on some tuning advice, I don't have the file right here but it can be posted.

I prefer to use expo in the transmitter and I max out the slider for agility.

There was some working betting v-stabi to do the blurr. Finally Ulrich stepped in at the vstabi forum and helped. To get vbar to blurr you have to run the tailrotor value in the gui to over 200. When I use 220 I get a decent rotation rate. To do this you must not use v-bar expo but use expo in the transmitter. For normal flying without blurr. A value of 200 and Futaba expo of 90%, felt quite comfortable, with good agility.

Hope yours works out.
Petter

I am running with 350 blades but I don't notice much difference doing autos. Autos are bit more tricky since the helicopter doesn't level out as it does with a flybar.

I do experience an increased flight time of about 30 seconds to 1 minute. But that is hard to tell because of flying patterns and stuff like that. Not really scientifically based.
