Ok let me rephrase this I have a beastx fbl and want to make the head fbl without changing the whole thing.

I don't want to buy a 200 dollar head if all I need is a couple of parts. Really the mikado head is low due to the flybar carrier being over the blades. So really just need a way to lock the swash and longer links. Also I would think the blade gripcontrol ball would need to be spaced out more.

For a low cost fbl conversion (still using quality Logo parts) you can basically use the same rotor head, grips, and grips/swashplate links. Just remove the flybar bits and add the Mikado flybarless grip balls directly to the grips.

Then take off your stock washout assembly and its arms/links and add the Mikado fbl swashplate driver. You should still be able to use your existing grip/swashplate ball links, but you may have to adjust them a bit, or maybe buy longer/shorter links. Just study the Mikado Logo 14 FBL head kit details/instructions for dimensions and parts details.

Probably not the prettiest FBL conversion since there is a big U-shaped hole and end-bit sticking out at the top of your rotor head, where the flybar was. I think you could always dremel this off and fit a head button to it if you wanted to.

For ~$60 in Mikado parts, it's a pretty inexpensive way to go imho.

This was basically the way that Mikado first went when they initially tested out the V-bar on a Logo 10 3D except they had grip/swash link guides instead of the swashplate driver (which is much better).

Best Xmas cheers,

I converted a flybar head to flybarless. Super easy on the Logo. First: dremel off the top of the head and all the flybar junk. Then remove the pins. Buy the anti rotation bracket, and the cone shaped ball link ends for the blade grips and your done. Flies perfectly fine.

GL!

Well I purchased an outrage head for it off a fellow rr member. Now the big decision is do I put mine mini v in this one or my beastx in the logo and put the mini v in my protos
