And 2doggs, should have read your review for that Gens Ace 1200mah 6s. http://www.xheli.com/98p-30c-1200-6s1p-6666.html Geeze, too many things. Anyone need some old 3S packs?

Gives you some extra room for motors that stick out the bottom.

Put Scorpion HK4015-1450kv. It's most powerfull 500 size motor on market. It's virtual impossible to bog during tic-tocs.
With 3000 mah 6s lipo I get 4:50 min 3D flight time.

Hey Guys

Just a quick confirmation.

For me to go FBL on my current FB HK500 I should only have to buy the Align #H50181 500 DFC Main Rotor Head Upgrade Set and FBL gyro?

Cheers

No you also have to buy the blade holders $29 AGNH50150 and any thrust bearings ect.

Or you can get the alzrc sdc head that is a clone of the Align dfc head that comes with the blade holders for $50 http://www.rc711.com/shop/alzrc-devi...th=166_216_309

You well need new Blade grips and you well need to modify your main shaft to fit.

So I gather the stock thrust bearings and feathering shaft dont fit the Align DFC kit?

How good is the alzrc kit?

The alzrc come with a main shaft as well. The thrust bearings will work I think, but do you really want to put used ones in a new head.

I have it and so far it has been 100% copy of the align. I did do what beenflying said and put the align dfc plastic ball links on for a tighter fit because I got the align dfc swash, but they are cheap.

I have a spare 500 kit laying around with some missing parts in the head. I was thinking of building it up to a FBL setup.

All parts will be new

I do not think the Align DFC main shaft well fit in the HK500
I know it did not fit in the HK600GT
it is made for the Pro version so the collar is to short.

Good pick Black heart.. didnt think about the fixed collar on the shaft.

looks like too much effort with the Align kit.

My other option is the RJX head which is not DFC.

It should fit. I have not seen any issues with it at helifreak and a lot of guys there are using it on the 500e. The only difference on the pro is wider not taller. May need some extra shims. And all the hobby stores have it listed as a hop up for all align 500's http://grandrc.com/Elec.-Helis-&-Par...duct_info.html
