Looking to convert my 600 LE nitro to flybarless.. I have a lot of experiences with Mikado, so Ill stick with Vbars.. This isn't a post of which flybarless system is best..

What do I need to convert in terms of head/links etc.. Im currently using stock align 610/620, CY stickbangers, rail tail blades...

This is a NON DFC setup FYI.. Would it be cheaper to just buy the Align 600N DFC combo, sell the 3gx than to convert??

Thank you!!

They make a "3g" mainshaft for the 600n. It was used with the old 3g heads when Align had the 3g conversions. I was able to just swap this main shaft on my 600n and then the v1/v2 flybarless heads fit just like they do on the 550/600 electrics.

Since the new 600n DFC version came out, there is probably another mainshaft for the DFC heads. It should be as simple as the conversion I did. Swap mainshafts, then swap the entire head for the new 550/600 DFC head.

Both style heads can usually be found complete on ebay (brand new pulled from kits). I have picked up a few 550/600 heads like this to convert some helis to fbl.

This might help you from Ready Heli. It's for the non-DFC version. That's the one I am using on mine. Listings for silver and black parts as well. You can call them if you have any questions.

NO but more fun
3GX you'll be lucky to get 100$ for it.

when I did my conversion I replaced the grips got 2 links to match the size I needed and added a swash driver, It was very inexpensive for me the way I did it
I'll post the part #s later

hi
Thank you for the replies..

I was just thinking of using the Mikado head, since I prefer driver-less..
