QuickUK has an awesome selection of Raptor upgrades, what company in the US does the same? I especially love the whole rotor head upgrade kit for $220.
Thanks

In my opinion, nobody anywhere offers what Quick UK does. Mavrikk, TT and TDG all have metal head upgrades, but I perfer the Quick UK one.

I second robroy, there are many folks that produce so called upgrades that are a marginal improvement or actually a downgrade, QUK is not one of them, in between durability, accuracy and looks I got QUK every time....

Ask your Doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.

And if Rick's doesn't have everything you need check out the Quick UK website, they are on the very top of the RR homepage.
You can order directly from them.
I have a Raptor 70 with every Quick UK upgrade and it is a sweet machine.

One more question. Does upgrading your whole rotor head assembly really improve performance and safety or is it mostly just for the great looks?
Thanks

Well on my Raptor 70 I did notice a tighter,smoother more locked in feel.
Also you don't have the wear factor like you do with the stock plastic and to be honest with you at the headspeeds we are running these days I feel better with as little plastic in the head as possible. In Particular on the larger helis.
Now is it all worth the expense ?
Only you can answer that for yourself, but I have complete Quick UK upgrades for all my helis and I am extremely happy with the upgrades.

Do a search! Maybe everyone will be mature enough to just leave it at that.

The plastic rotor head on my 90STD was showing signs of wobble on the main shaft after about 4 gallons of juice. Also, it was very easy to get blade slap when pulling tight corners at speed. Whilst it's a GREAT sound, its also synonymous of the blades going slightly out of track.

I put a complete Quick UK head and washout on the beast and it's on rails now! Very smooth and precise and you really have to push it to get blade slap!

I agree with al but will expound a little, QUK and QWW are NOT related in any way shape or form,
QUK equipment = great stuff
QWW equipment = trashcan filler

QUICK UK = Good

Quick World Wide = Bad

If it's made in the UK it's OK with me!!!!!!!!!!!
