Hi,

I'm getting a bog standard 500e for scale use.
I want to fit a flyberlass head on it.
I know I need a head block and grips.
What else do I need to convert the standard 500e to flybarless?

Is this OK to buy ?

Thanks.

Hi, I don't know the scale, but it's the Align SuperCobra body to fit the 500E

I have just converted a 500 to fbl, if you find the post you can see the list of things I had to order, picked up a align dfc head, and in total with swash etc it was 77 posted to the u.k., next is just a gyro (3gx)

Quick question where did u get the cobra fuse, I am looking to pick one up eventually

I've got to be away from now until Monday, but I can take some pics after that of my unbuilt camo kit.

Align and Heliartist are the same product, just in a different box.

from the looks of the photo I wouldn't recommend that FBL head b/c on the Align stock heads, it don't clamp to the main shaft solid and had a lot play brand new and will worsen over time. Will still fly but you will have to turn the gains on the FBL down alot. You have to get a FBL rotor head like KDE style. they have 2 additional bolts that will clamp onto the main shaft solid.
