just picked up a SK-360 im gonna put in my 500 esp,I also plan on doing the freebie conversion to the rotor head that is posted here.Seems like it will work ok to me!

Anyways is there any "tips" i need to know for a total FBL newbie??i noticed guys with FBL helis always pop the heli off the ground on take off! is there a reason for this? will skidding on take off mess up the sensing on the unit? ..also what headspeeds can i run with a flybarless 500?..i mainley do your basic 3d practice moves and fast big air tricks and circuits..

Thanks alot!

dude..wheres my heli?????ama#902014

t500 FBL

Do yourself a favor and just pick up the RJX head for this machine.

it's cheap and better than converting the stock head...if you really want crazy...get the I2 head...

you can easily sell the stock head complete and use the cash for a flybarless one...

as for taking off....yes...you do need to pop off the ground because if you touch down after lift off it can make the sensors react and cause a tip over.

there is no magic headspeed number...but I prefer 2800 myself.

Mikado conversion...

I have the Mikado conversion and would have to say the RJX is still a better choice...the Mikado extensions are very soft and bend in almost any hard blade strike incident....

I'd rather have a specific flybarless head setup also ...

well i got all my stuff today..and i got everything together..i will order the RJX head next week,but for now i just wanted to get the SK360 up and running on the stock ESP head incase i smash it i wont mess up the new RJX head! haha

all i need is one more mainshaft collar and two plastic mixing arms to finish converting my rotor head..The metal ESP arms wont let me swap out the radius arms on the ball link side cuz the threads are different..damn..

Im using this conversion shown here

http://www.rchelimag.com/pages/howt...howto=33&page=1

The SK360 didnt seem to hard to wire in and mount,i got that nice and neat..but i am nervous about setting up all the paramaters in the unit with the soft ware...for some reason i couldnt get the sk360 to connect to the usb but i think it has to be powered to communicate with the usb...anyways..back to wrenching on the bird
