I think you will find you can fit the TT FBL head. I also had good luck with the RJX head on a Raptor 30.

I'm pretty sure you can transfer the main shaft and everything above the swash from an X50 to the V2.
I'm not sure if the parts in the heads themselves mix-n-match though.

most stuff fits, except the spindle, which is 7mm on the X50 and the associated hardware like dampeners.

Flybarred or FBL?
That should have been my first question.

The flybar control arms are a match.
The mixing levers are a bit shorter on the X50.
Grips won't fit unless there is a bearing that will reduce down to the smaller V2 spindle.

The FBL head made by Thunder Tiger is awesome and will practically transform the V2 into a new bird.

The X50 head is also a work of art. If you have the option of putting an entire X50 head on it, that would be a good plan. You'd need to keep the original swashplate and stay mCCPM but that would be a good option as well. Sorry I can't be of more help.

You can use the R50V2 radial bearings in the X50 main grips(thrust bearing are the same)with the R50 feathering shaft.

Thanks Heli 770.
I wasn't sure how that could work. Good to know.
