I have just took on a Len mount Lynx project. I am trying to decide on the best rotorhead to use.
The mechanics used are the Vario benzin, I currently have a century 4 blade head system but i am not sure its suitable for the mechanics.
I like the Vario bendix system but its not as scale looking as it could be.
Does anyone have advice on head choice?
so far i have found:
Century
OF
Vario
Is there any other choices out there, or recomendations on best head out of the above to use?

I can only talk about my limited experience so here is what I have used. I had an OF four blade head and I used it with a helitronix mixer. And it flew like a fly barred heli without any different settings other than normal. My friend has a Century 5 blade head that he flies without a mixer or anything and it is very smooth flying. And thats about all I know.

I have two OF rotorhaeds, a 5 and 6 blader and a Vario 4 blade. I have a mixer and gyro on the Vario. The OF 6 has a mixer and no gyro. The OF 5 has no mixer or gyro. I like the way the OF heads feel, it's different than a flybared head but very manageable. The blades also make a big difference, the heavier the blade, the more stable. OF are about the heaviest out there.

No problem.

Oh, and I don't think Vario makes the Bendix head anymore.

I've flown Vario's 3 and 4 blades heads. The 3 w/o a mixer on a Lama and the 4 with a mixer on a EC 135. Both felt very positive and responsive. I've not seen a Bendix in head is a while.

Russ,

I fly both the Vario 3 and 4 blade heads - (with 2 bolts).

Personally, I find both of them very easy and predictable to fly.

No mixers - no gyros, just a very good set up and GV-1 for rpm control.

Thanks Guys, Ive been offered a Vario head with blades and an OF head without.
The OF head does look more scale for the Lynx but like the sound of the vario head from what you have all advised.

Will do some head scratching and make a decision.

Thanks again

Russ
