Called Heli-world today to order a rotor head yoke for a Raven. The number they used is HI6160. There web site says this is a rotor head yoke for a Raven, Falcon, and Predator?? I have a Predator and they ain't the same. Has something changed or is this part number a mistake.
Thanks Jim C.

Are you taking about the rotor head hub, or the flybar control arm, or the flybar seesaw?

Edit: OK, looking thru the web site, Century also calls it a yoke, sometimes. The new one that you want is: HI3160D

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Heck, I didn't know that HI3160D ($28.95) existing. That's what you want as it has both parts. If you just order HI6160 ($22.50) then don't forget to order HI6153 ($12.75) - washout guide as well. You need both. You save some bucks by ordering the one item with both parts, the only reason you'd want to order the standalone ones would be to get Purple (or to replace a broken part if you already had the washout guide).

Yes, you need to order the HI3160D - for the Raven/Falcon.

Thanks guys. I guess I'm still confused though. Does the HI6061 indeed fit all three heli's?? If so thats great. If not I'll still keep the one thats coming for a Pred spare.

J-B,

Yes, the 6061 fits all three helis. But keep in mind, if you don't already have the 6061, you will also need the washout guide pins that come with the HI3160D. These are the new versions of the rotorhead.

Steve is correct - The Predator's hub (HI16160) will fit the 10mm mainshaft of all three. But it weighs 42 grams to the Raven/Falcon hub at 26 grams.

Also, if memory serves me correctly, the distance from the center of the yoke part (which would be the center of the spindle) of one is 1/2 or 1 mm longer on the Preds then on the Ravens. No big deal here as one would just have to slightly lengthen the control rods from the flybar yoke to the bell mixer and the rods from the swashplate to the bell mixer.

Just a note, the HI6160 isn't the same as the HI6160. I've ordered two of them, one fit perfectly but the second was somehow larger and when I went to insert the rubber dampers, they would only go half way in. I suspect if you get the HI3160D you'll be fine.

Thanks BC Don. I'll watch out for that. Sure wish they would put together an update/upgrade page on there web site for the parts improvements.
