Hi all,


I would like to put a rotor button on my 50V2 in order to slow down the rotor and eventually stop it (caus the clutch/idle RPM will keep it spinning otherwise).
So, can I set this upgrade on the standard flybar seesaw or do I have to get an upgradeed one as well?
What is the BBFTB for this upgrade?

50V2 Webra52AAR 401

Thanks

I have one like that pictured, but because it is part of the seesaw it pivots with the flybar... If you're not careful when pressing/squeeezing, it will rock and your and can get caught and bend the flybar (mild bruzing pain)

The new SE metal head has an "integratied" button, and looks to be the nuts. I can't wait for my pastic head to wear out so I can justify the $90 it costs.

Head button
Hi,

Not only you will bend your flybar (not yet happened to me), but also you will loose your flybar carrier as the bolts that are used to support it to the head will became loose as a consequence of the force applied to the bolts threads (this does happen to me). Your flybar carrier will become useless.

If you have the money to spend on the new head, go for it!. I'm waiting a little bit to recover for my damaged flybar carriers (yes a 50 and a 60) and buy the new ES heads.

Fly with attitude, land with style!! Autorotate with dignity!

If you just palm the head button there should not be any damage to anything. They are used to stop the blades when idling or the engine is off so not much force is needed.

I've been stopping my rotorheads fine, without buying anything. That Heliproz headbutton also puts a lot of weight of center everytime the flybar tilts.

Al,

Do you think the extra weight has a noticeable effect on performance? I recently bought the complete Mavrikk head but have not put it on yet. I'd like to put the head button on, not to help stop the blades, but to carry the heli.

Its not worth it however, if its going to slow cyclic response down.

I don't know Phil, it's just poor engineering.The head with the hoop over the top is a better deal.

Don't suppose you have a link handy to the one you are referring to?

ptarp, here is the one with the hoop over the top: http://www.ronlund.com/Merchant2/me..._Code=RAPTOR30U

Al, I really agree with you about the weight off center when the flybar tilts. That does not look like a good design and have to cause vibrations.

I've got a new clutch and a new clutch bell, plus a two part rotor brake (seesaw and mushroom).
With this new clutch system, the rotor engages above iddle-not at iddle- and it is a pleasure to have this little bling on the top of my head

I flew my Raptor since day one with the head button like the one pictured and there is not a noticable difference with the same amount of wieght. I have just changed to the 50SE head only because of the added strength.
