FBL Conversion Completed
It takes me 3 days to complete the conversion with a couple of problems encountered here and there, but everything is resolved at the end.

Well done Rudyy. I just converted my SDX also using Hirobo's beautiful, blue, but expensive flybarless head.

I am using the Ace GT5 flybarless controller and it too requires around 9mm on the JR/Spektrum servo wheels. So both SDX and Turbulence mechanical geometry is alike in this regard- which is no surprise.

I have flown mine and it has been fine but a rear bearing problem is holding me up until next weekend.

Agilefalcon, well done to your conversion also. I am just waiting for a warm day to do the test flight.

Would you mind sharing out the picture of your SDX?

SDX Flybarless SL Head GT5
OK, a couple of pictures of my conversion using Ace GT5 flybarless controller and the Hirobo SL flybarless head. The engine isn't installed as it is off to Magnum Fuels for the center glide bearing conversion.

Hello rudyy, very nice Turbulence.
Right now I'm also building similar heli.
I have one question, could you tell me what is the part that I've marked on your photo ?

This is not included in stock Turbulence kit, right ?

I could be wrong but I think it's a custom adapter to support the Eagle cooling fan cover.

From memory there were a couple of guys using it because it forced air over the engine head better and their engines where running a little cooler than using the stock D3 fan cover.

Basically what rudyy have in his D3 is the WC divisional fan shroud instead of the one that came with the kit. When the D3 first came out there was some cooling issues with the engine.

Some of the owners who also got their D3 when they first came out experimented with using the regular WC divisional fan in lieu of the stock one. However in using the WC divisional fan, the mounting tabs that came with kit's fan shroud was not present. Therefore some devised a custom mount for it. I'm guessing it was either Agilefalcon or TMoore that did that. They took a pair of crossmembers, a pair of cap screws, a pair of small, rectangular cut CF sheet, and tapping screws.

What you see in ruddy's picture is how it got installed. The outcome of this experiment was successful. There was a significant change in temperature.

Those blue pieces were designed and cut on Terry Moore's own CNC mill. Rudy's model was originally built by a friend of MRC team pilot Tim Tripoli, who obtained the shroud mounts from Terry for him.
