I just fitted a new RJX flybarless head on my logo 10 this weekend...

This will work for any logo though....it's a great option for someone who wants an all metal head for cheap money...

check it out



I lowered it now...see pics below

Are you using Skookum?!?!
I woulda thought Logo flyers would stick to V-bar. Or are you on some other system?

How do you like it?

Gyrobot...
I'm actually waiting for a new Gyrobot to come in...I don't have the gyrobot yet....and stillhave the Spartan in there for now

MrMel....The head is actually lower than the stock head...I redrilled the 3mm hole for the jesus bolt down about 1" from the original spot...which makes the head sit about 1/4" lower than the Mikado head(I have one for this machine for comparisons)

I am going to try running it like this for now...I still have PLENTY of room on the main shaft to cut it and redrill another hole to further lower the head assembly...

Is the head span the same as a logo, from main blade grip bolt to main blade grip bolt?

Jag, for some of us who already have the Logo flybarless head, do you think the grips will work with the Logo metal hubs? Great alternative to the plastic grips.

Some Info
some info on the logo 10/400/500 head Rjx 50 head and logo 600 head

Mikado Head(10/400/500)- 141mm from bolt hole to bolt hole on the main grips
Rjx 50 Head- 146mm from hole to hole
logo 600 head=164 mm (bolt to bolt)

Mikado head spindle for logo 10/400/500 =86mm long
Rjx spindle is 8mm diameter(same as logo 600) and =94mm long
Logo 600 head-Spindle =109mm

Mikado logo 500 head -distance from ball link to ball link on main grips=60mm
Rjx head -distance from ball link to ball link on main grips =64mm
Logo 600 head= same distance=66mm

Mikado Vbar headblock =45mm wide
RJX headblock =45mm

so the headblocks are the same width....BUT...spindle lengths are different ...so you'd have to get creative as to how tomake the metal grips work on the stock headblock...

I personally think it's it's cheaper and easier to just buy an entirely new head assembly and use that..

This RJX head only costs $100...and that's 100% complete

do you think its possible to put the washout arms on the head block and lower it even more ? or is that just asking for a boom strike ?

As I said I have the same head in my Milli, but now that you are promoting this head, I have a question for you.
In case of a crash, where can I buy the spindle or the arms in case that I bend them.
I will not mention the brand, but I had a metal head that when I crashed I did not find those parts anywhere.
