RAVE ENV DFC Head
Tried to fit T-Rex 700 DFC Head on my Rave ENV.
I used T-Rex 800 main shaft.
Stopper is under the top BRG block with few shims then this shaft length is perfect fit.
Made own anti-rotation bracket coz DFC need lower ARB and wider slit(3.5mm).
Thx.

Vey nice, was going to do the same as you. Could you give the dimensions for the ARB? Also, does the bottom of the main shaft pass all the way through the bottom bearing block.

Thanks

800 Main shaft, Yes it will perfect fit to the bottom bearing block.
700 shaft is too short. ARB dimensions I will check weekend.

Ok cool, do you get enough collective travel (14 positive and 14 negative)?Does the swash clear bearing block with full cyclic deflection at full negarive?

Thanks

As you can see +-14 is easy. Linkage from bellcrank to swash need to be shorter but it's not big deal.
I added pics of ARB with scale it's hard to explain exact dimension, kind of try and error to find best size and position.
I also made DIY battery tray rail to use Trex700 plastic battery tray.
Last pic is with Trekker canopy I just tried to fit. I think not so bad looking.
