I am sold on Flybarless setup after I outfitted FBL on my logo 10 and tried it a couple weeks ago. I just finished a FBL conversion for my E620 also using Logo 600 FBL head and a Logo 10 main shaft. Can't wait to try it tomorrow if the weather is good

Very Nice
I have an E620 with a SK360 that I am working on. I got it flying but am still working on getting a head setup that I am happy with.

Thanks, Eddie M. I'm putting an E620 together for a scale fuse. I saw it was a Z-Power but wasn't sure which one. Have you flown your bird yet?

I put a couple of flight yesterday late afternoon and this morning. The weather is no very good on both flight and with the wind blowing at 25+km/h which doesn't help at all. I did up the Hiller Gain to stop the heli from drifting in whichever direction on my initial test flight. It does handle very well in 25+km/h wind gust to my surprise. It is far better then the stock Fly bar setup in such windy condition. I need a few more flight to get it work the way I like. Hopefully the wind will die down in the next few days.

The battery in the pictures is 10s1p A123 pack. I normally get around 6-7 minutes sport flying time with 10s1p setup at 1750 to 1800 rpm head speed. At 1900, the flight time will go down to around 5 minutes. This E620 will eventually go into the A119 fues.. I just need to save up for it

I've put in a half a dozen of flights in the last two days with the sk360. I can't say I get it all tune up and perfect and I am no 3D pilot also. As I have it now, it track perfect in hovering and FFF. It is so smooth and stable in FFF is like "It is On rail"! It is also just amazing to fly it in windy condition and the flybarless system really does make it a lot easier to fly in such condition. The stability and the smoothness really inspire me to start pushing my own envelope I now flying mush faster and make a much tigher turn then before...

What makes the FBarless system fly better in the higher winds?

You have three gyros now instead of one.

Flybars. Who needs `em.

SK360 in the WInd
With a flybar you have to change the trim as the nose or tail goes into the wind. With a SK360 it holds steady all the time and is always in trim. It’s also much easier to control during gusty weather. Wind gusts effect the flybar paddles but not the flybarless gyros.

I am happy with the Mikado 600 conversion kit on the E620. The only down side with this conversion is that 620mm blade maybe too long and my hit the tail blade since the distance between main blade bolts on the 600 FBL head is about 10-15 mm wider then on the stock TT head. With my current 610mm blade, the rotor disk is as wide as with the 620mm blades. The other thing is that you will need is a Logo 10 main shaft and preferable to use a clam type main shaft lock ring like on the typical logo setup. In the pictures about I use the Quick lock ring but I change it out to a clam type lock ring since they did move about .5 mm on the shaft after my first two flights.

Eddie, could the Skookum unit be made to work with the stock 90 degree swash.

Outrage has a FB head available for 100 bucks with follower and the grips are bigger than the ones on my OR 550. They are the ones that will be on thier 50 nitro

I have a complete spare E-620 airframe with metal mavrikk head and tail that needs some love Ill transfer the head to my E-620 that I fly with a stock head/

Have you got everything dialed in nicely. How is it flying ing . I am interested in setting mine up flybarless with an Outrage FBL head.

Im flying 620mm Mavrikk wide chords on mine and I have plenty of clearance with the tail blades Over 3.5 inches at the closest point

I am still playing with the numbers but it is pretty close to how I like it for the flying I do as of today.
