What do you have now? A few things availible can help a lot vrs the cost of the complete head.

I was flying bone stock for a long time, but i started doing basic front and back flips and barrel rolls and some accidental chaos!!, and had a few crashes, as stuff got broken i upgraded, like the tail box,also i upgraded to a jgf 500th with a CC speed controller. pretty much each time it goes down something in the head assembly brakes, and instead of repeatedly changing plastic components i was wanted to run a cnc head assembly with plastic blade grips, this set up is working great for a friend of mine. The only thing i dont know is if any of the aftermarket stuff is good. If someone tells me its no good then i spend what i have to to get the align parts, but if someone highly recomends something i will take that advise.

Thats a good thing, i found anyway, when it goes down you just replace the plastic bits, when it goes down with the cnc stuff, things get bent and becomes expensive in my opinion. as for cnc heads I would recommend a sonix cnc head. imagine your in the states and dont know what prices you guys pay but heres one for $200, i've put it in dollars on the link for ya. e-mail him, his names Rupert, tell him Lou told you to go to him, big help this guy and I think shipping will be about $10-$15

Some FYI, The align stuff are in fact casted machined, anodized parts. They seen to be tougher than the other aftermarket parts. The only thing I'd recomend to the Align Bling Head is MH washout arms and MH grips unless you go V2 then all you'd need are the MH washout arms to tighten the slop factor.

I have the micro heli aftermarket head.

While I can't complain about performance I do have a couple comments to make on the head. Keep in mind however that mine has been performing excellently at 3300 RPM (the head can take more RPM but my tail starts to get vibe above 3500, not the heads fault).

I had to grind down the outer holes on my see-saws as they would have hit the collective guide on my microheli frame. If I hadn't been so thorough in my head setup I could have missed this and had a disaster. When I buy a brand new head I shouldn't have to modify it in my opinion.

The 6061 aluminium is also a softer and not as beefy as the align head and will be more suseptible to damage in a crash (I havn't crashed mine after upgrading it yet).

Other then that I have no complaints and it performs excellent, however if I were to purchase another brand new head I would probably go with the align v2 as it just seems stronger, and now both have thrust bearings.

You may want to try the RC-Tek Diablo head

Hi,

I recently upgraded my XL with the RC-Tek Diablo head and tail. I also upgraded the stock 430L motor with the Scorpion motor. Wow, my XL is now a totally different helicopter! I can not say enough good things about this new combination!

The Diablo head (swashplate and main shaft included) is about $90. The tail (belt is also included) is $50. The quality of the CNC parts are better or at least the same as the V2 head CNC. You should check out their web site to at least take a look the head/tail

GL,

Dan, KE6D
