Hello all,

Wondering who out there has either the MH new head and grips with the thrust bearings etc and your thoughts on it.... better tracking now? / Good voerall performance? Same with HeliUp as I know they also have a new grip and head design for the T-Rex. I think the stock setup is very "soft". I have heard of some people using some fuel tubing, extra washers.... I personally would just like to see a head design where you didn't have to do that kind of crap. That is one thing I can say for the Shogun is it's balde head design with the hard collar is a much firmer setup and you can dial your tracking in nicely.

Any experience with the MH or HU head and grips would be cool if you could share. I am trying to decide on next step to getting the head better. Thanks

I have heard more than once to stick with plastic grips. It helps with taking up stress in crashes and breaks less stuff.

Well I have plastic grips and I understand that. My issue is the tracking. It seems with the 16/15/3 motor on 13tooth when I ramp up with a full batt my tracking is out 1/4 to 1/2 inch at times, only a few minutes later tracking is spot on. The two o-ring and spacer deal on the head is far too soft IMHO. I am looking for a 3d flyer fix here is my point. And that is what info I am looking for, thanks.

I know the aluminum will break more, just dont crash that simple. And if you do... accept that it is going to cost more to repair. Cheers

At the price they want, I'll stick to plastic.

People this is not about metal (vs) plastic. It is about the thrust washers and the different width dimensions stiffening up the head. Just to calrify as people seem to be getting off track here.

New MH head and grips, HU head and grips, your thoughts?
Looks on track to me.
I just use an extra washer and o-ring. My tracking darn-near perfect. That is until I pruned a tree with my rotor, .. but that's another story..

I love the *use plastic grips or you'll destroy everything else* syndrome. I now have 4 fully aluminum head Rex's and they all have their "unfortunate events". Plastic grips wouldn't have lessened the damage, they lessen performance and reliability. It's pretty much a given that you're going to lose masts and feathering shafts. *shrugs* It's up to you but saying that everyone else says it's the best way to go isn't true, look at all the pics people post. Not many plastic grips in there.

I agree with the X, if you crash you are going to have as much damage plastic or metal no matter. Anyhooooooo I guess no one has got these new grips n head n such as of yet. No biggie, I will wait to see posts down the road. Thanks anyways.

just my 2 cents ,for what its worth, i bought a microheli flybar set it cost me a hundred bucks, and it was totally worthless ,the mixing arms were made of butter soft crapy aluminum they got bent to hell just trying to install the thing it cost me 20 bucks for new ones ..and i never did get it setup rite for a slew of reasons i wont bore you with... anyway my $120 of MH
"precision flybar" is sitting at the bottom of my junk parts pile sooo i would think most guys would feel the same way...once bitten twice shy...besides already i have heard bad things about the bearings in there new tail pulleys so F them


thanks for the listen

I will second Hellijunky's opinion. I had the same exact experience with Mh parts. Just too damn soft. Never got my trex off the ground with Mh parts. I went with Heliup set up after that. Heliup stuff seems much stronger, but are not perfect. For the money you can't beat Align's stuff. For high head speed, go with Heliup. For moderate to low head speed, go with Align.
