Hi, has anyone converted to flybarless on an R22 Did you modify the existing head or use the vario complete head, I can't find a complete head on the UK website just the head block and blade holder converion kit.

Thank you.

I have made the conversion. I used a Vario conversion "kit" #722/75. I think that they may have stopped suppling this kit, which provided all of the new parts that are needed, but let you keep the parts that are carry-overs,like the head block, axle, bearings etc.

Hi Sandy, I sure wish that I had this info when I ordered my R22 head. I had the flybarred head and spent way too much time trying to convert it to FBL. The geometry of the standard blade grips just won't work for FBL use. So I ordered a new R22 specific head ($620), because I didn't know that this conversion kit was available. Anyway, Joe shows the kit on his website, so I'm assuming that it's available.
