The new design relocates the servos in an optimum position for direct to swash operation, and adds provision for larger 49mm diameter motors like the Scorpions and Turnigy 600. Adds additional equipment rack locations, and battery plate adjustment.

Update:
I am now flying with a full sized tail boom, 550MM FRP blades, Outrage 550 paddles, T600 1400kv motor on 6S with a 13T pinion. -- It flies like butter, with reasonably unlimited vertical performance.

The second one with the black frame may be FBL....Continue Reading

I built a Flybarless head by cutting an Align head down about 1" and boring it out.
I also made a phasing collar for it.

A Tarot ZXY controller was used. After sorting out the gain and deadband she flies like it is on rails.

Head is lower, and makes the helicopter look a lot sleeker. I like the "Milk-jug" canopies.Duplicolor Adhesion promoter allows them to be painted. with acrylic enamel.

Updated the ZXY to 4.01 firmware- man does it fly good now.

These frame sets convert your Trex-600 from push pull to direct to swash linkage, and allow use of 50mm wide motors, and an extra equipment tray They work great with FBL systems.They use full sized servos,mounted between the frames on rails for improved geometry. Servos move from the center-ine of the main shaft out, not in a tangent like a Ttex550.

The natural green is translucent, and a buddy of mine is making a night flier with an illuminated frame. After building both up I prefer the Natural material- it is really easy to see to work on. and in the air.

I have not tried to convert an ESP. The tail should fit, but the ESP only uses two main shaft bearings you might need to add the lower one.
