Mine is probably 35 degrees, as the lower links I made

from slightly different ball link locations.
Then I also assume that the main blades should be 90 degrees in
relation to the swashplate balls. Mine are at roughly 100.
(again, 10 degrees off).
This would totally explain the strange behavior I've been getting.
I thought it was a crooked custom blade grip locator pin, but I'm going to
try this first.
On the MJX, the flybar is almost exactly 45 degrees from the swashplate
balls, and the blades are 90.
The ZR Z101 head I have on mine at present has different angles to the 9116.
The flybar looks about 45 deg off the line of the blades (as in if it had a feathering shaft) but when I hold the old 9116 over the top of mine and line up the flybars I see the "feather shaft" angle is off by about 2 deg and the lower linkage guides are off by another 5 deg. My swashplate balls are also not 90 deg off the blades but the flybar is about 45 deg to the swashplate bales.
It will be interesting to see how the two heads compare once we have our motors and offset mixers in place.
The link with the fp conversion is interesting, but I am not sure why he bothered considering it is a 90 deg fly bar. I would have thought he could have just set a fixed pitch on the cp head and almost end with the same result, without spending well over $100? Unless he didnt get a cp head in his kit.
