Just wondering if the FBL main shaft with three holes will still work the the original FB head.. those are the shafts i ended up with . just wondering if they'll work.. any help would be appreciated!

I believe it will work, but you will use the lower of the two top holes with the FB head. The FBL shaft may need to be trimmed at the top if it interferes with the flybar.

Some slight linkage adjustment may be necessary... I believe the distance from the bottom hole to the first top hole is the same as the spacing on the FB shaft, buit I am not positive on that... in any event it will be very close if not exactly the same.

Thanks for the input i talked to Brian at CYE today and he told me to use the top hole.. in any event i'm gonna use one for setup and for a little flying then order some regular main shafts .. just to be safe although i'm sure the shafts will work fine i just don't like having a hole below my headblock haha

I'm pretty sure your links from the swash to the head won't be long enough if you use the top hole... but I could be wrong.
