What do you mean by "rigid head"?

Although they had a tetering head, everyone "taped up" the damper to the point of it being almost solid

Doug !

RIGID is the Kavan head without flybar, which was an option, but standard on the Lockheed.

I am building a Kavan Jet Ranger and bought the RIGID head at Kavan in Germany.

Rigid head
You will have to change the 90 degres linkages to install the rigid head. The ratio are 2 to 1 instead of 1 to 1.

The kit also included alle the new 90 degres linkages with the different ratios - anyway thanks for your comment. Soon I will post some build photos here, if I figure out how to do it...

Kavan
I have one with a Ledgend and fly bar less head, and one with the Kavan fly bar head and mech's. The Kavan head is smooth, and the fly bar less one is super quick. Also with the fly bar less head in FFF if you let off the stick for FF the heli will pitch up, this is the nature of a fly bar less head

Y'all are making me jealous. I really want a Kavan one of these days. I let one pass on ebay that didnt make a 300 dollar reserve thinking I could email him and get a good deal. All he did was relist it immediately at 250 and it went for over 600 bucks

Yes - they still have some of the most common parts for the Jet Ranger, but maybe it is getting more difficult - I guess !
