Any flybarless head will work with any heli as long as the mainshaft is the right size, which it is. Sometimes you have to change out a link end or drill a hole in the head or mainshaft, but they are universal.

I'm very jealous of you winning that head. That's the beat lookig FBL head I've seen. I want one but can't justify the cost.

the compass fbl head should work fine. eury is right, basically as long as the mainshaft is the same diameter (10mm), it should be okay.

the only thing you might need to do is have longer links from the swash to blade grip, but since they are the delrin tubes, i wouldnt suggest making your own. go to nankin hobbies website and get the tubes that are from the track fbl head, they are 10mm longer then the compass ones.

compass makes the tracx fbl head, so all the parts are interchangable, just the tubes are longer on the tracx head.

everything went on beautifull. rods were plenty long enuff. only thing i dont like is the X50 mainshaft head bolt holes (2), dont line up with both holes on the head. i used the top hole on both to get as much mainshaft in ass possible and 1 jesus bolt. it doesnt look like its gonna be a problem but 2 is always better than 1 lol. Thanks for the info and ill keep the build updated. I just got a micro beast and im using an AR7100r rx. will update soon

so i got the beast installed and setup with the tracx FBL head. looks awsome!! i mounted the beast on the top deck where my gy520 was. i hovered it for a few min and flipped it once real quick as it was dark out and hard to see. ill get it in the air again hopefully tomorow with more light.

That is the same head I use on my x-50. Also went with the top two holes, they are fine. I use the cgy750 with it. Setup both electronic and mechanical were a breeze. The proof has been in the flying... It is freaking awesome. I love how this thing flies with a fbl head and the compass head looks gorgeous on there. Plus the rod design simplifies the linkage so you don't have to have the exta dummy linkage that just keeps the linkage lines up withthe head. Love this combo, good choice sir!!!

yah FBL on the X50 is awsome !! i love this setup. i feel like my flying has improved so much now that im not always correcting for the mechanical flybar. FBL is the only way to go. my titan SE will be getting this upgrade as well as soon as funds allow it
