Century FBL parts
So I have two Century upgrade metal heads. I plan to use them both on FBL machines. I have the follower already, but I can't get the geometry right using the "stock" parts.

What I need is a few pieces from the FBL head, but I don't want to get the whole thing since I already have most of what I need.

I know Century offers the full metal fbl head as in: http://www.centuryheli.com/products...7¤tid=439

But what I really need is just this: http://www.centuryheli.com/products...2¤tid=439 except the FBL version with the big long balls.

Anybody know if they can be obtained separately? Or some other manufacturer that uses M3 threads on long balls?

Call Heli-world. I would almost bet money that they will do it for you.

As a last resort, the plastic grip can be used with the long ball stud and this is what I do. But if your into bling then this may not be an option.

That's exactly what I'm doing right now (except with the metal grips because I'm into the bling ). Problem is the geometry still isn't great. I can't get rid of all the shakes because the mechanical gain for the FBL system is too high. So it wobbles with hard collective changes no matter what I do.

Since I'm in Canada, I think I'll give oldfart a call and see if there's anything they can do for me.

If you go with the plastic grip and the long stud then you end up ZERO Delta (no mechanical gain). These fly very well.

This route may not be what your after but they do fly well. You could always give it a shot while waiting for your nicer parts to arrive.
