Modified TT fbl head

As the links for the fbl head are easy to lose and not so easy to replace until spares for the fbl head come in, I came up with a way round it.
I used the stock plastic hub, but with the fbl grips, and using Blade 400 linkages. The swash follower used the plastic washout base with a screw through it to hold it in place on the main shaft, and using a cut-off flybar control arm and the grips were changed to trailing edge.

Had a brief couple of flights on it this morning until the wind picked up. With 40% expo it is perfectly flyable without a fbl controller. With a bit more time with dual rates I may get it to fly like the flybarred version.
It certainly wasn't as skittish as it was when I tried the same setup using stock grips, but may be another avenue for those of you looking for ideas if you lose the fbl linkages in a crash.
(Ignore the jesus bolt, was taking it out when I thought I'd take the pics).
