Question
450 se v2 fbl conversion

hi, its been a couple of years since i flew my 450 se v2. i know there is a flybarless head and want to convert my 450se v2 to fbl. the fbl head i see on sale is mostly for the pro or sport. can i use that for my se v2. if so what else do i need to buy or setup. if there is a thread about the conversion that would be great. i would appreciate if you can post it. this is what i have currently on my 450 sev2. 3x hsmg65. futaba gy401. tail futaba 9257s. running on 3s 2200mah. thanks

Those fbl head in hobbyking and ehirobo works for SE V2. I am flying flybarless with SE V2. I have a few of Copterx SE V2 flybarless kits from ehirobo too. Use the SE V2 main shaft instead of the Pro one in your SE V2. Enjoy.

you can get a tarot flybarless head + zyx controller. I've done that on my 450 sev2 with HS65mg cyclic and it flies like a dream.

I used the Align DFC head with the Robird G31 FBL controller. Servos are Align DS410m. This combo is flying VERY well for me.

You will need this main shaft for your Heli. The Pro shaft does not fit properly.

You can find that shaft just about any where 450 parts are sold. The spacing for the lower Jesus bolt is wrong for the PRO shaft. The machined collar on the pro shaft to the Jesus bolt hole is just a little bit short and it keeps you from getting that bolt through the gear.

You can also use the RJX head with your existing main shaft. I have this head and G31 combo flying on two 450 SE V2 helis. One has Align DS415m servos and the other has Corona 929mg servos. These combos are also flying very well for me. I have a set of Tgy S306g HV servos that I am going to use on the machine with the Coronas. Not that there is anything wrong with them, but I want to try the 306 servos. The Coronas are working just fine.

Yes, you will need a 3 axis FBL gyro. Also, most heads for the 450 sport and Pro works fine on the V2, just need to use the V2 shafts (Sport DFC if DFC head). I have a V2 with 450 Pro flybarred head.
