We've got a Logo stretched with 810's that is being used as an AP research ship.

Would like to upgrade the head to an aluminum head and grips where the main head bock not only bolts to the main shaft with a Jesus bolt, but also clamps. Like the MA heads or Kasama heads.

I prefer a flybarred head for now.

I know another head may require a longer/shorter main shaft and linkages as well as washout base. That's fine.

So... any ideas? What's a good metal head from another heli that will retrofit to the Logo and hold up well swinging 810's at 1250 rpm at 20lb?

I haven't tried it yet but have you considered the Aurora Avant head? There are options for either flybar or flybarless and they fit directly onto a 10mm shaft.

Website indicates for 720mm blades but I can't see why 810's wouldn't be ok given the lower headspeed.

Vario also make some nice heads for 800mm+ blades. The "Xtreme" two blade head with aluminium grips looks good. Available for 10mm mainshaft.

I'd say joker head, but it doesn't have the clamps ( as you know)

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.

Why don't you just put an MA head on it? If you don't want to use the plastic grips then you can just use the MA metal grips.

MA head does sound pretty good. I'll look into it.

Vario head looks good too and I like it because Vario and Mikado head designs are nearly identical.
