You need to wire the power of it into your leads for your esc, but other then that its plug in play. you unplug your esc lead from rx, and plug it into the bec, then the bec wire plugs into the port on the rx.

trying to find a spot to mount it is the hardest thing lol. I will add a picture of mine but it comes with just regular servo type leads for power but my dad don't trust them so we spliced some bigger wires into it also made the stock esc lead longer cause I was having trouble plugging some battery's in.

I got 4 or 5 more flights this morning, Man I really love this FBL heli wish I had done this long time ago, its like flying a Large MCPX.

I need to get some more flying videos
did you get your FBL system and get it going?

Oh cool!! No i am supposed to receive it tommorow or tuesday. I cant wait!! Now that the head is tarot, does the swash move up for positive and down for negative? (Since the stock moves down for positive and up for negative)

Also, i was bored one day and decided to try and free hand draw (no tracing) the Blade 450 3D with a DFC head. I think it came out pretty good! I think the head is the most detailed part or the canopy. The tail was the hardest part to draw.

(sorry sorry one is sideways)

I'm about to convert a 3D to FBL

Would an Align 450 DFC main rotor head work for this mod ?



EDIT: Nevermind , I found the answer and aparently it fits with a little mod....

How did you do that? I seen you got a new head but didnt know why. Did that snap after one your minor crashes?

Guess you cant see the pic well its the two on either side of the head that tighten the slit where the main shaft goes... hard to explain... they do not hold the arms there the ones that are behind the arms. I do not think they could ever come out cause the arms in way but did makethe head loose the main head bolt still in so it couldnt come off..

I dont think stock head has them dont have one to look at.
