Raptor 50 v2 conversion to DCF or Flybarless

I want convert my raptor 50 v2 flybar rotor head to DCF or flybarless rotor head.

Is an Align 600 DFC rotor head would be suitable and enough to do the conversion or do I need other materials (e.g. main shaft, etc., no need to mention a flybarless gyro). Your suggestions are very welcome.

If DFC conversion is not possible, how can I convert it to a flybarless rotor head. I do not want to purchase TT's original rotor head set, too expensive..

Many thanks..

Well you could use the original head and cut the top off. Then buy some Klone 50 FBL grips. I did this with a G-force headblock.If you skip me I can't play!

Wow, many thanks, your Rapi is very innovative..
I don't think I will be able to convert it to CCPM type swashplate.

Is there a particular reason why you do not prefer DFC?
and
Is it possible to use an Align 600 dfc rotor head?

Sure the main is 10mm, the two links can be made(longer if necessary as the main shafts/head are probably different heights).
The amount of throw the swash needs to make the Align head work may or may not be adequate, you'd have to try it(the Align swash is larger, both inner ball spacing and outer ball spacing).

DFC has interaction causing fatigue. There are threads on RR all about it. Yes DFC works, but I prefer a method that avoids that.
If you skip me I can't play!
