I have a Raptor 30 that I'm wanting to replace the head on. A guy on here has an X50 head for sale. Will that fit the standard 30/50 main shaft and will it function properly since the X50 is CCPM?

Thanks.

Tim.

Simply put, No it does not work. The geometry on the washout assembly and the main shft are different. I wanted to put my X50 head on my raptor 50 V2 and what I found is that the pins in the head block do not reach the washout assembly. So no this does not work, I wish it did and I am sure that someone out there has a way to work around this problem but when it did not bolt up and work I gave up on it. Don

Thanks guys. I think I'm just going to hold out for a Quick UK or a Mavrikk head. I have a Quick UK full metal head on another Raptor 30 and it is rock solid.

X50 head

Ady, can you tell us how you did it? I just piled my Titan SE in (nasty) and was thinking of putting an X50 head on.

Cheers

You can always put a Trex600 metal head on. Help a student of mine set his up and works great. The head went on a Rapor 50 titan se. Works great if you dont mind the align all over the head.

if a metal head is what you want nothing better than a kasama head in my opinion I have one and the adjustability is awesome and the head is rock solid

2 thumbs up for the Kasama heads. They are night and day over stock or an.. *clears my throat8 an align head. your raptor will not fly good at all with an align head... the Raptor will get sick all the time, grunt and groin.. LOL no I dont like align parts either.
had to throw the teaser in there.

I have heard that without that second bolt in the X50 head it has a slight bit of play since there is no clamping force applied to the main shaft. That is why the X50 has two bolts through the main shaft. Kinda iffy just running one Jesus bolt and thats it if you're gonna be 3D'ing imo.

So you're saying use the X50 mainshaft? Thats fine if the rest of that shaft fits the Titan setup.
