btw, some align plastic cases have different bearings than what the FC needs, so don't chuck the align case, it will work with the correct bearings

@kpinnc, check my blog here on rcg and you'll see my 500 class heli with the FC head as well as the 450 with the FC head.

I also really loved my FP heli's, and the only reason I don't have one still is because I sink all my heli money in my gasser.

The gasser is CP but I still fly in FP style nothing crazy for me when flying
ATC, I've been drooling over your 500FP and 450 mods for weeks. The 500FP would be my dream machine. I want a large heli that has control authority, but I have absolutely no desire to do anything with it that a full-scale can't do. 3D is NOT on my wish list.

I have a V1 FC motor, in very good shape. If I can get my hands on a FC head, I'm gonna build one of these awesome helis!

Well, the big thing is a complete rotor head. Most of the individual parts are still available, but there are always tiny bits to figure out. I wanted a complete head to start with, and go from there. That is after all, what makes the FC fly the way it does.

I'd love to get a belt drive kit later on. Kinda hoping ATC still sells them on his website...

I hope it paid off for you, and I'm glad you're available to help. I really want to build one of these with the FC rotor.

Nice video dubs49.
It's great that you can walk out the back door and have an large area to fly. I have to drive 12 miles. The city doesn't allow any radio control in the local parks.
