Default Fury 57 head on fury 55?

I’m looking at purchasing the fury 55 and I’m wondering if I can upgrade the head to FBL with parts that are still available? Or could I use the 57 head?

I just bought the Fury 57 head for my Fury 55. Fits perfectly and comes with all the parts necessary to convert. Judith at MA said this is the new replacement head replacing the previous fbl head. As a bonus the price is even less than the original. Its quite different than the original MA. You actually build everything onto the feathering shaft then cover the bearing stack up with the blade grip. The screws that hold the blade grip link arms in place thread into an aluminum collar on the feathering shaft. Reminds me of how Minicopter does their head.

Haven't completed the setup yet but in the next few weeks as time allows I'll finish it up and post some pics.

Got the new head installed and the Vbar programmed. Hopefully if the wind doesn't blow tomorrow I'll get it's maiden flight in.

Got 5 flights in on the new head. As expected it flies very nice. Had an issue with the carb on it's maiden voyage so I swapped in another carb from the .55 I took out of my TSA. had to re-tune it a bit but have it running close enough to optimum tune that I'll leave it be for now. Checked my logs on the vbar after the last flight and was pleasantly surprised at how vibe free it is. Always was nice and smooth before the conversion. Just have a bit more fbl tuning getting the head and tail gains set right and a trim flight and all should be set.

Did a rattle can paint job on the canopy. Tried for the Yamaha YZ stripe and more or less got it right but it definitely shows amateur painting abilities. No worries as it ought to look great in the air and from about 30 feet away! Nice conversion and well worth it, probably do my other Fury as well.

Default canopy paint pic

Here's my rattle can paint job. It's about a 30 footer Actually its not to bad. Flew with it for the first time today and it just stands out in the sky like a sore thumb. Got a bit of fbl tuning to finish up mostly the trim flight and optimizers. This heli is inching up to being my favorite ship to fly. It is just rock solid and smooth. Nice job MinAir

11 flights on the Fury now. Got the engine tune closer to optimum today. Bumped up the head gain 5 points and it is almost perfect for me at least. The tail is nice and crisp. I like the new Rail 96 much better than the original plastic blades. Tested this when both of my Fury's were flybarred. Carbon blades made the tail noticeably tighter while the plastics felt a bit mushy. Not really a big deal but there was a difference. I am going to convert my other Fury to this head as well. That will leave me with only one flybar heli, my original Trex 700n LE. That one I'll keep as as fb just for old times sake
