Thinking of putting a full size Vbar 5.0 and the new JR FBL head on my Vibe 50. Does anyone here have that combo and what do think of it?

What head are you running?

What do you mean used too, you must have switched to something else?

I was thinking of running that combo. I think I'm going to hold off until Futaba releases their FBL unit. I'm in no hurry to get my heli going since there must be about 4ft of snow at my field.

Same here, we got about three more months before good weather is here. I thought I would spend those months learning how to set this FBL stuff up since there's nothing else to do.

Works great ! I put g-force mixing arms on mine that improved the geometry a little. Running vbar5 ...can't wait for 5.1 and I'll lose the MultiGov. I was going to change back to 140ccpm, but as it is now, I'm max-ed out at full coll/full cyclic on the bellcranks going to the front points on the swash. Going 140 would require more travel on the bellcranks to get the same coll/cyclic. Besides, I've never noticed any interaction using 120ccpm and 8717s.

<< EDIT >> I was just looking at my vibe manual and I forgot that with 140ccpm, the balls move to the outside of the bellcranks.... I guess I will switch it back. The reason I switched to 120 is that I was getting some interaction with 140 using the vbar. I've since learned that you use a 130 setting in the vbar for the Vibe's "140" configuration. Go figure So the binding at the bellcrank base won't be an issue.

I've got pretty much the exact same head set-up as Kevin but I'm running a Microbeast v2. No problems here.
