I just got the Kasama head for the Vibe 50, looks awesome. Also, spacers needed for the blades.

I will get some flights on it tomorrow, really looking forward to it.

Here are a few pics.

Mike, is the whole head or the blade holders?
I would like to get the blade holders, but I want to hear an opinion about them before I buy.

Only one question, WHY? The stock stuff is working great.

The stock stuff has been working very well.

For me, I have always liked the feel of metal grips as they make the head more rigid.

The Kasama grips eliminate the need for spacers and allow you to tighten down on the blades a bit more than the plastic and well..they look good.

Everything has been a perfect fit and the quality is excellent.

Yep, just about the same width and only a few grams difference in weight.

I wouldn't really call it "stuck" but yes, you do need to use the Kasama spindle.

My goal is a more rigid head, I think the Kasama system provide that and adds a bit of style as well.

Well I was able to get 10 flights on the new grips and can say for sure that it feels tighter and crisper than the stock plastics.

As for the head button, you really don't need one. I would prefer the plastic over metal just becuase it will break rather then bend.

The purpose of the metal head button isn't just bling. The stock plastic button sits too low between the grips making it very difficult to spool down the blades by hand. I personally had some problems during the time when I was using an old clutch with a new clutch bell and there was alot of drag at idle. Some of my attempts to spool down the head ended with serious oscilations that could have made the bird tip over to its side (not to mention hurt my fingers).

The g-force button I'm currently using is a few milimeters higher so it lines up pefectly with the top of the blade grip jesus bolts. This not only makes "hand braking" much easier but also keeps the pitch arms farther away from the edge of the head button itself. During a crash the survival probability of the mixing arms and even main grips increases.

Just finshed my head on my Vibe.

I have put on the bling things I could find and it looks great.

Parts are from Kasama and G-Force

Thats SOOO sweet. I have been playing with g-force mixing arms too. I would recommend you to move the link on the left side to the inner hole to speed up the collective response. Currently I'm using the left inner hole and the right outer hole with excellent results.

Can anybody tell me the exact weight difference between the kasama and the stock grips? I'm waiting for the g-force arms to come out but the kasama ones also look sweet
