Default Funkey MD500 flybar hits fuselage

Can anyone help me please? I am trying to fit my Trex 600 Nitro Pro into a Funkey MD500 fuselage but have noticed that the flybar will hit the top of the body. This seems to be the case on the bench but i'm not sure if they will clear in flight. Has anyone tried this, or have any suggestions please?!!

You can do the same thing on my Thunder Tiger MD530 on the bench, it wont happen in flight unless you do something really crazy in which case you're going to have other more pressing problems.

As Andy says, just level the bar before head rotation and it will clear, btw it's called a a dog house (the bit that sticks up).

Its not an issue as stated. When I'm bored, I'll fly the T-Rex/MD500 combo inverted, do stationary flips/rolls, etc, with it, and never had an issue with the flybar hitting. I need to be careful that the flybar is not positioned to hit it on startup, but other than that I don't think its an issue at all unless you are going to do more than mild 3D with it.
