I have a 600ESP with the align 3G head and BeastX. I was wondering if there are any issues with the DFC head? I heard that there was a good chance of a boom strike. Is it anymore of a problem than, lets say a 700 Goblin? I would like to make sure before I purchase this unit. I fly mild aerobatics, no 3D.

Hey, (I'm on a 700 Nitro)
No real Problem with DFC...
IF you tighten strongly your blades and give enough pre-load on the dampener. You MUST HAVE NO PLAY and GOOD PRELOAD.
Also your swash links MUST be FULLY tightened with blue loctite. On my side I also add some cyano between links and balls.
and run over 1900
If you respect all this, there should be no issue !

I have it on a 600N. I have had no problems. Both Compass and Golin use this type of head. People were having boom strikes way before anyone invented the DFC head. If your blades are to lose, they will fold and strike the boom regardless.

I think you'll find the Nay Sayers (aka "internet experts" don't even own one.
