cross posting from the Align forum

Take a look at this conversion kit http://www.grandrc.com/inc/sdetail/227153

Intro price of 49 bucks, and converts your stock T700N head to FBL.
I picked on up today to give it a try and see how it stacks up against my RJX head. Looks to be another great option for the folks not going to the Align 3G combo. I am going to test with an SK360

You can use 6mm stand off QUK balls on it as well for folks that have already converted to QUK links

Many pilots at my field have been using the ADK conversion kits with both Trex600 and Trex700 with great result. They pair it up with either the Mikako V-bar or the SK-360.

It is a very good alternative for those who want to use their existing heads and other flybarless system besides the Align 3G.

I will try to find the photos I have taken earlier and post them here.

all T-Rex will ADK conversion

some use Mikado V-Bar, some SK-360

I believe that they make it in black to match the older black color head also.

Don't know about the 600 and 700 Align heads but the 500 head's ratio is a LOT different than other heads on the market. It was very close to 1:1 whereas most other heads are 1:1.5. You might have to make some adjustments to servo wheel distances to accomodate...........Ron

I found more pictures

The ADK conversion was released in October last year which is a few months before the 3G. This is the reason why only the SK360 and V-Bar were used. It will definitely works with Align 3G.

The ADK works with original Align or QuickUK swash plate without any modification (on the ball link's width).

Those pictures were taken in October last year at the end of our rainy season.
Right now is the beginning of our Summer and it is perfect for flying.

well I sent for my ADK 700 conversion kit this past week from GRAND rc,I should recive it by monday Lord willing,and the flybarless electronics that will be used on my 700 will be my Aling 3G.
I figure it should work just fine.
where I do have some dougt is in the balls that go in the upper part of the swash plate that connect to the connecting rod's that also connect to the main blade grips.
I read here on RR that these balls that come with the 700 3G combo kit are a little larger.
I do'nt have these balls cause I oredered the 3G 500 combo for my 500 so I can use my skookum for my 500 and the 3G for my 700.

ADK comes with connecting rods between 2 balls on upper swash plate to the blade grips and 4 rod ends.

You don't need to change your existing swash plate's balls at all.

the ADK was designed to work with the original balls (size and overall dia.) on the upper swash plate. It is a complete conversion kit in itself. Just plug in your 3G, set, and enjoy flybarless.

FYI, my pilot friends here have been testing and comparing between Align 3G, SK360, and V-Bar. The V-Bar is the winner.
