FBL newb
Hey guys,

I am loving my fbl Aurora it feels sooo different from my flybared Vibe and Trex.

OK, not exactly an apples to apples comparison but I've got the vbar bug thanks to Jag72, it was his Aurora. I will slowly phase out my flybars and will start with my Vibe.

Can you guys give advice on a good fbl head for the Vibe 50? Is the Mikado conversion kit any good?

Thanks.

Lots of people use the RJX head.
It just depends how much you are willing to pay.
I think Jag uses the RJX head for a lot of his conversions as well. He would be the best to answer your question.

Anthony does use the RJX head but I know he has some new and improved stuff on the way .
As for a FBL unit, the VBAR has worked well for me. Right now it is at the top of the heap and is the standard. There are a few new FBL units that look promising but they are still very new and all the bugs have not been worked out yet.
The Mikado conversion will work great and don't be afraid of the plastic grips as they are the Logo 600 grips and many have used them on 600s spinning 2400 on the head and 90 sized helis as well spinning 690s .........Ron

vibe head
Thanks for the input guys. I've looked at some of the other forums and it does seem like the RJX head is the way to go. I remember readyheli had a 3DX fbl head for the Vibe as well... If Anthony doesn't chime in (he's probably in the electric only category), I'll definitely send him a PM. But I really appreciate input from everyone.

Agree! VBAR all the way for me man. It came with the Aurora and the software interface runs well on the Mac. There are quite a few guys at the field though that are really happy with their SK's.

An SK 360 is a good unit but it can only do 2 axis. When you add the tail to the mix, it makes it a whole new animal . The new 720 is supposed to be nice but it has not hit the stores yet so we will have to wait and see with that one.
I am not sure about the 3DX head as I hear they had problem getting parts for them a while ago.........Ron

Ron,

Thanks for the heads up on the 3DX head. Looks like it will be RJX vs. Mikado conversion.

On a side note:

I see that you are a FF/Paramedic. Please pray for our fallen heroes here in Memphis. One of our hospital wings crashed last week d/t bad weather. Our city lost 2 flight nurses (Cindy Parker and Misty Brogdon) and a heli pilot (Doug Phillips).

Kudos and God bless to you men and women who go in harm's way to help people.

Horrible to hear and I will certainly add them to my prayers. Thanks for the kind words..........Ron
