I upgraded my Beam E4 to FBL with the Beam FBL kit.
Using the new Skookum 540.

Pretty much all plug and play.

This little dude has now replaced my Furion 6 as my favorite... and I love the Furion 6!!!

yesterday was my first flight with my recently acquired beam e4 and I can only imagine how much crisper the fbl version is. My new fav 450.

Changed the servos on my Beam to MKS-92A+ on the cyclic and MKS-95i on the tail.

Also made some adjustments on the SK540, but I need to do a little more tuning.

I'm thinking about converting my Beam to FBL too. Which head did you use? Do you get your parts from A-Main?

Thanks,

Jeff

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

Its cheap and fit perfectly.

I made way to many changes all at once, including upgrading the Sk540.
They I stupidly failed to go over everything and whamo!
Some servos where reversed. I had even read about that happening when upgrading.

Anyway... started from scratch and all is well.
Still need to up the gain a little on the tail.

I was flying Edge, then switched to Radix, scrapped the radix in the unfortunate "wamo", now using edge again.
I'm probably going to order the A Main Eco blades to give them a try.
