Hey guys!...dont know if someone already mentioned this or not..didnt read every post....I put on the align full metal head on my rappy 50, it flew nice, but I just could not get enough "pop" with the align mixing arms...so....this is what I did, and boy does it pop now!!! all the collective you need!...I used raptor washout arms, drilled and tapped the side that the pin goes through, and attached a ball link to it,I unscrewed the ball link at the long end and put it on the opposite side, I then ground down the meaty side to give the flybar cage clearence...these are now my new mixing arms..I will post some pics of them if you are interested?....this thing kicks butt now...just flew it today! I used metal washout arms, but you could do it with plastic ones just as well...this solves the "not enough collective travel" problem , and is very easy to do.

thanks ozbach think i will experiment with that , what pitch range are you getting ? is there ant binding with the flybar holder ? i notice that you are using a q uk swash i coulnt use one as i couldnt get the pitch range with it , sorry for all the questions but i realy like this head on the raptor its so much better cheers

Well davie...I will check tomorrow what my full pitch range is..I do have to adjust it one more time to even it out...I had enough negative pitch, to bog the hyper 50 a bit...and it would climb like a rocket inverted, so tomorrow Im going to adjust it for more positive , and less negative, pretty much try to get it at a even range...I have no doubt I should get at least +12 and -12 Im thinking more, I will update tomorrow, and test fly it...the swash Im using is a cheap QWW brand.there is no binding on the flybar carrier... it will bind if you dont grind off the thick part of the washout arms were the 2 ballink mounting holes are...if you grind it down to the main thickness they clear no problem...I checked for binding in extreme low pitch and high pitch with full cyclic movements

i did about the same thing as you.

I took the stock align mixing arms and drilled the hole in a little bit.

This got me 11/11 and 8 cyclic but i wanted more so i ground the frames and now i have 13/13 and 8 cyclic. thing shoots like a rocket now but i melted my motor yesterday on my second flight with 13/13 so i'll have to wait awhile before i can fly around again.

Yes I forgot to mention, I did the frame slot mod first, it does gain you a little travel, so with the combo of both I now am running +12 and -12 thats enough for me!....I was going to drill a new hole in the align mixing arms, but there was not much material in closer where I wanted the hole, so thats why I used the raptor washout arms, just about the perfect length hole to hole, all you do is drill out the existing pin hole just a bit larger, and thread in a ball link...I am going to go fly it in a bit, after my coffee. These align heads are the Sh#t!!!.....I have this head on my V1 raptor...it now flys better than my V2 which has the 8:7:1 gear ratio and titan tail, running radix 600s and it has a full metal maverick head with G-force mixing arms. so thats pretty darn good!

Wow...just got back from flying...This thing rocks now! you point it in a direction...and it stays that way until you input a change...Thats the one big improvement I notice most! flys nice straight lines fast!..no elevator inputs to have to hold nice straight fast lines...you guys have got to try this!..if your thinking on going to a metal head...you cant beat the price!...for the performance you get! They are sweet looking heads too!

If anyone's looking for a head i have a spare.

metal block
metal washout
2 sets of grips
2 sets of grey dampers
1 set of black dampers 4 flights

Flew the head for 4 flights with metal grips
Opted for the whole 600n heli.

Plastic grips will need assembly. Radius arms have been sized for the raptor swash (mine needed a fair bit of sizing) , not stock align size anymore. Just noting incase there end up to big then the buyer would need to find a new set - there about $4

$100 shipped

having flown the 600 pro i dont think its too much different from the raptor with the 600 head, not worth selling your raptor to convert to a 600 imo. (but thats just me i like my raptor and it does everything i want it to)

I noticed the 600 rolled smoother, but climbouts were the same and flips seems to be the same.

the 600 cleaned the floor with the raptor when it came to autos though.

I agree also.

But for me align parts are easy to get and lots are compatible with my 600e.

The head was the one used on the raptor.
