I just bought a used fbl fusion 50 for a sweet deal, but I wanted a fb version. I have been searching high and low for a complete head or even all the parts to build one but can't. Do they sell them complete like they do align birds? This is my first bird that isn't an align so forgive me on the ignorace. But I was wondering, since its a 600 bird, can I put a 600pro head and go on about my buisness or does it have to be an outrage head?

Edit... you want a Flybar head. I don't think the 600 shaft and F50 shaft are the same.

You can get all of the parts here...

Question, Everybody uses the Fusion 50 head to upgrade the Outrage 550 Pro to Flybarless, will the 550 Flybar head work for the Fusion 50? I have 2 550 Flybar heads for sale in the FS forum.

He saw my original post, I linked to HeliDirect for Flybarless heads.

What do you think Vico? Do you think the 550 FB HEad will work on the Fusion 50? The F50 FBL head works on the O550...

LOL!!!

Are the Fusion 50 and Velocity 50 head assemblies interchangeable?

Yes, the F50 head that all buy for the O550 is listed for the F50 and V50. Do you have one from your crash?...

Nobody seems to list a complete F50 or V50 FB head.

Not from the crash, but from when I went FBL. I have the entire FB head assembly w/ FB swash plate, 20 flights or less, like new.

Ahh... lol, I see.

I cant say for sure, but I can compare them... one of the fields I fly at has a couple of flybarred O550's... ill check it out. Hey, might even take one off your hands for a spare.

We gotta have somebody in here that has both, doesn't Slyster?

I use identical heads (and bearings, shaft, main gear) on my 550 and Fusion 50. All that stuff is exactly the same... FB or FBL.

Dantemcc just buy one of Bryans and you are all set.
