Hey Guys, can I get away with using the cool looking FBL QUK servo wheels on My FB'ed 600N. I need wheels and plan on upgrading it to FBL after my next mishap.

Thanks!

Andy

I am not sure what the QUK wheels look like but as long as they fit on the servo and your links are nearly parallel when at servos and head is at 0 PITCH, you should be fine.

That's what I thought but wondering why they sell a different set.

I think the quick uk ones are for fb Helis as they only have one set of holes, align make alloy servo horns that have two sets of holes for fb and fbl.

Ok, I guess my question is: are the holes spaced differently on the FBL wheel.

Just spent some time on the phone with Ron Lund. He said FBL wheel is a little smaller than the FB wheel.

Yes you can use them. Using them as they are will result is reduced throw but you can make up for this in your CCPM settings. You'll also enjoy greater holding power too. This was a common option when flying contest where servo speed wasn't needed as much as servo holding power.

To convert your 600 to flybarless you will need to go in on the servo wheel ball locations to obtain the proper cyclic movement. In other words you must move the balls closer to the center of the wheel. Align has a two position wheel exactly for this purpose. It is plastic. Sorry but function trumps beauty every time.

And before you do this conversion you should look over on Ron's Heli Proz site for the material list and notes on what you need to do. In addition to the hardware changes, you are going to have to update your voltage regulator if you are running a 4.8-6 volt system.

Meowguy, you just answered this question for me too! And I have seen the article on heliproz south, what if I just bought an align flybarless head? It seems heliproz is refering to converting the head from fb to fbl. Greg

Yes, you can buy the whole head, but I can't say if it has the 201mm main shaft or the 190mm. The 190 is more desirable, and that changes the length of the pitch links. Heliproz guide is for the short shaft.

Depending on your flybarless setup, I have beastx. To get optimum travel (the blue LED) you must use the holes closer to the inside of the servo wheel.

I have JR8717 and the standard (small) wheel is perfect. IF you go metal, be aware IF you crash, you can take out other things. Consider the plastic as a better breaking point than the servo shaft or other things. Plastic has the advantage, you want it to break here!

PS: tried the KDE head and flew for a while, (months) the RJX head had much better geometry (got the BLE LED witrh this AND the small servo wheels) Do not have experience with the Align 3G but I can tell you the BeastX with this setup works perfect!

How do I tell how close to the center of the servo wheel to put the balls? For what its worth, I'm using a helicommand HC3-SX and align 610 servos.

You should check the website for that HC 3. I have 21.5 millimeter. Screw to screw.

I have align plastic wheels. They would not work when i went FBL.
