I was wondering if anyone tried using the D3 blade grips in the SDX head? i am asking this question cause I have several SSZ3 grips lying around and its easy to convert them to D3 grips...all I need is to by the SSZIV pitch arm, and just use the plasting mixing arms of the SDX....

I'm pretty sure they will fit since the axle is shared and Hirobo describes the IV head block as the upgrade path for the FZ-V. The IV pitch arms do indeed fit the III grips; I just checked. Remember that since the III grip doesn't have a slot for the arm to key into, a bit of the integrity of that union is reduced versus what you would see with a true IV grip.

Thanks for the info...will update you once installed and tested. Yeah maybe the integrity may be compramised a bit thats why I thought of just using it with the 50....well see.

BTW it was nice meeting you in the US...

Likewise Justin.

I wouldn't sweat the integrity too much, since Hirobo has used non keyed pitch arms for eons on even 91 models, and your model is 50 sized. If you shear off two 3 mm pitch arm mounting bolts in flight, I'll buy you a beer <g>.
