New 3D mixing arms (TT or G-force)
red dampeners
QUK auto hub
new Paddles (V-blades or TT red)

a nice start.

Best service is Ricks or Heliproz. Both have ads here

For a stock 60, best bang for the buck is a metal head (I run the TT 90SE head on my 60 airframe), plus red dampers, metal swash, and red paddles.

Usually more headspeed, but to do that you should think about a metal headblock, possibly a governor if you don't have one already, and some carbon blades.

The TT flybar cage, makes a nice change as well. You can then run a 90SE flybar mount, and move the mixer arms to the inner hole.

So, from a stock 60V2, I would start with:
90SE metal head
Red paddles
Red dampers
Metal swash

Fly it for a while, then you can add the flybar/mixer/cage upgrades

Might as well go V-max for the price of that, with the STD head it's a better flying machine then the SE

V-max with the G-force head, Priceless times.

I don't see a reason to do that. The upgrades I mentioned are less than 200, and retain all the stock, easy to get rappy stuff.
And regardless of what moves the swash, you need a metal head......

Oh, you ment only the head block..

I though you were talking about the grips, wash out and the full 90se head.

sorry, misunderstood.

I ran a set of the metal grips, and on first hard auto I flat spotted the radial bearings. Back to plastic grips now, with the SE head.

Yup, i run my head like that too.

Metal head block, metal washout base, metal mixing arms. Light and good performance.

Seeing you said "60" i think the BEST upgrade is a 91 engine.

Did that too.
My 60V2 got the bits I mentioned, plus a YS91/SB16 and RL10. Running TT680, on 8.27 gears, and about 1900 on the head. Silly is a good word for it :-)
