Converting N5 to flybar heli.
« on: May 14, 2017, 01:49:25 AM »
I am enjoying my N5. However I would like to convert it to Flybar for some time. I was wondering if anyone has experience of doing so. What flybar head will just slide in using the same swash plate. If you have done so then please let me know.

Thanks
Sunit

What version do you have? The original N5 was a flybar machine. You should be able to locate a head pretty easily second hand

I have N5c. I got it about 2 months back. Thanks for the tip.
All parts are available except the most important part "Head Block". Even the synergy website says that this part has been discontinued. So I guess this cannot be done. I wish factory assembled flybarred head was available.

There have been enough people that have converted them from flybar to FBL, I bet someone who has one will chime in.
