Just wondering if this head will be a good candidate for my MD500E. I won't be flying this bird much. It will probably be on display at local police station. ( Copy of police helicopter,)

I like the looks of it. It looks more scale to what I am going for. But I don't want it to go in the ground either.

My Lightning 5 blade has me worried a little. It looks great. But I got it here used over a year ago. I would like to send it in to them. But can't find any link. Any idea's?

Just call me Farmer Brown. 'Cause I know how to really plant 'em

Hi

Have you looked at this site. They used to do the lightning heads, but ones made to their spec.

I had a lightning 3 blade and it was very poor quality. The center mast hole was not machined correctly and it had a wobble. Plus the blade grip arms are too long for scale.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Diamond head would be the best.

What about this 1?

I was wondering what they mean plug-n-play? They say you don't need a swash follower and it comes with swashplate. It looks nice, what I'm looking for. But the Century has the lead for reliability. Please give honest opinion.

What they mean by plug n play is that the phasing is already taken care of for you. The arms comming down from the grips are L shaped giving it the phasing.

Here's the plug-n-play 3 blade head. IMO very high quality, phasing was spot on and it runs true. If you want mechanical phase correction, this head is great. If you prefer electronic phasing (vbar, helicommand etc.) then go with the diamond. +2 on the diamond quality also.

Yes you can still use the PNP head with the 720. You just dont do the phasing adjustments in the SK 720 software.

^^^^ X2 I'm flying mine with vbar, no adjustment required. If you like the quality of the head, but don't like the "J" arm, you can remove the arm and run a direct link/ball arrangement.

+1 on the Skookum. Scale setting with the recover mode up to 95% and you just can't crash the thing.
