has any body used this rotor head?
they apparently do not have command of the English language,
as i specifically asked if this head has 14mm blade root and their reply was yes it has a 12mm shaft go figure.

They still show a 600 version which has a 12mm blade root 10mm shaft
but the 700 one is a new product
here is the link if you need to take a look.

Contact CoachE (reference his RAH-66 Comanche build thread down in the DOCS section below. I am pretty sure he has a CNC head and can give you the skinny on them.

On another note:
This is a very good looking rotor head. The only thing that I don't care for is that they use wire EDM to machine some of the holes. This means that there is a slot in some of the holes vs drilling the hole. From what I can see, they only do it on the non load bearing parts, so it's cosmetic in nature. I just don't like the look of a slot where there should just be a hole...

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

My rotor head has been totally re built. The hardware it came with it was well lets just say, "You get what you pay for". As far as the actual CNC craftsmanship. I am still running with it a year later.

I personally would have stuck with my Vario head had I not crashed.

If you are a good wrencher then it should not be a problem.
