Default #1004 Graphite into FBL

Has anyone done the FBL conversion to the X-Cell #1004 Graphite? I searched and found nothing on the #1004.

Crashed my #1004 from a blown header coupler and the engine quit at a bad time, couldn't get it to auto a shallow angle and ended up hitting the side of a tree and it tumbled down until it hit the pathway (to the park) with the rotorhead.

While I was taking apart the rotorhead to see what parts needs to be replaced, I was thinking why not convert this to FBL and do away with the flybar and the mixing bell.

Has anyone done it?

Given the cost of repair parts, plus the added conversion parts, have you thought about just getting a nitro Whiplash FBL. The new Whiplashs are such a nicer kit, easier to setup, have have fewer parts.

Just a thought

We had a great country once. You know what made it great? “I can.” Then the weak came along, “the I cant’s” and destroyed it.
