Hey all, For those of you who have done the head flip mod on your Raptor 30's. DO NOT install the Quick UK headbutton. With the combination of the head flip and the head button the mixing arms will hit the headbutton when you go into negative pitch. This will severely wear out you swash and depending on your servos, you could blow a few gears. I was lucky as my Hitec's handled it quite well for the amount of flights I put on them with the headbutton on.

Thanks for listening

I have the head button and did the grip flip. When I read your post I went and checked it out. During extreme negative and cyclic inputs the button will hit the link and possibly pop it off?? I flipped the grips back and no more interaction (+/-11 pitch and +/- 7 cyclic). I'm using an all metal head except for the flybar and flybar mixing arms (gives something to break in a crash instead of bending the metal parts, the "weak link" if you will) and still flies smooth as glass and no woofs.
