Well I think I've decided to take the plunge and give flybarless a whack. Let's see what all the hype is about eh?

My question - what all will I need to set up the head of my Raven? I have the aftermarket aluminum head on there, and would like to keep it on there, although I do have the plastic one as well.

I've got the flybarless follower on order. What else do I need to get going? Long links? I know there's long balls that come off the grips in a lot of flybarless setups. Will I need those?

Any idea where to get 'em? Or part numbers?

Here is a little video on what stock parts you can use for your conversion.

Watch at YouTube

I bet yours would work better with the Century follower and the
Sk-360

Longer balls if needed

Hope this helps

Flips and rolls like a 500 size electric without any loss in the ravens stability. Flybarless is highly recommended. I am truly amazed the life it has brought out in this machine.

Human_Enigma, are you using any kind of Flybarless Electronics ??

something to add, I have noticed the Metal Grips do make a difference on the stock Raven head, they make the Raven's cyclic feel a bit lighter and quicker..

I am using a skookum 360. Although for best results, I also recommend strong fast servos, and zero slop in the mechanics anywhere.

I don't have strong fast servos, but I'll be running the SK360 as well. I already ordered the flybarless follower from the LHS a couple weeks ago, but alas, it's come in the same time as RH50's NX kit. May be more than a week out still. Anyways, I couldn't wait, so I just used the stock washout.

I hope to get some pics today (as I'll be headed out to fly), I'll upload 'em when I get 'em.
