I am examining the head of Evo50 and notice that the FBL conversion may be possible using 99% of Evo 50 stock head parts.

Here is a list of things that need to be changed:

1) swap Evo 50 stock blade pitch link with SDX CCPM swash link (2530-011).
2) convert Evo 50 radius arms to swash driver arms or use RJX one
3) get a pair of FBL links

I originally think of using SDX blade grip to replace the Evo 50 stock blade grip, but then realize Evo 50 and SDX feathering shafts are different in diameter, and thus they are not interchangeable.

Do you think the conversion is possible?

for the evo fbl all you need is
a trex 600 swash driver (it works better than a home made one from the hirobo wash out unit/arms)
trex 700 rods hn7100t (the std 2mm bend and fly off)
jr 94005 control balls (x2)

use the std sceadu swash, hub, yoke, and blade grips

note on the picture the trex swash driver wasn't used at this time

i've had no problems with the spindle (i'm not a hard 3d nutter)
trail edge was used as it is the std set up on the sceadu
but now the head is running leading edge
