I installed the G-Force headblock last night. When I opened the package I found a very nicely machined headblock with the name g force scribed into it. Also included were 70 and 90 durometer "o" rings.

I installed the head, (it took about 30 minutes) making sure to lube the dampers with silicone grease. Nothing too special about installation, super easy.

This morning I woke up early and drove out to my local field excited to try out this new product. I started my heli, set it down and spooled it up. I lifted gently into the air, and immediately noticed a very solid "locked in" feeling...very comforting.

I flew a couple of forward flight circuits and was impressed by the crisp feeling and very immediate cyclic response. Then it was time to throw down a little bit. Tic Tocs were more precise feeling, flips, rolls, and loops all had a "tighter" more reactive feeling. My chaos is still a little messy, but that's just me, not the head
I believe this is due to the true "o"ring damping this head provides.

Nice product G-Force! I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of more G-Force products!!!

How's your on the bench teetering (grab both main grips and rock)?

Did you notice more deflection than your stock setup (what dampeners red or blue)?

The new 50 tuner head rocked in the air but I saw more deflection (vs the red dampeners) on the bench in the above mentioned teeter test.

I recall you saying you were using 90/90/90 so I'm curious as to your before and after impression of the teetering.

If I didn't like the head, I wouldn't have posted anything. I would have returned the product to G Force, and no one would have been the wiser! I really do like this product, and feel that it improves the way my helicopter flies. I'm looking forward to more G-Force products.

Is it a "chaos" or a piro flip? I'm just wondering because over here east of the Rockies we call them piro flips until such time as you can index the start points every 90 degrees, then it's a "chaos".

I guess it's more of a continuous piro flip. I basically "stir" the cyclic at the same rate as the piroette, while adjusting collective to hold a consistant altitude.

That's cool. It's a hard enough maneuver as it is.

hmmm, then I'm not really sure what the difference is. I remember a thread about what a "real" chaos either is or isn't. I don't remember any definitive answer though. Point being, mine are a little sloppy and the point I was trying to make is that the head and damping system didn't allow a boomstrike!

There are subjective reviews from several pilots in other threads that are non Factory Pilots.
