Aluminum alloy is just that, Aluminum alloy, doesn't really matter how much money you had to give up to get it. $300 or $30.

The Kasama head probably only took $20 to make. Rest of the $280 is just for the brand. The aluminum alloy in Kasama head performed as expected. It is the name brand that failed you.

Well, trying to be as big as I can here, I guess it's posible that the spindle/grip fasteners were REALLY cranked to the point that the dampers expanded and put some serious stress on the head.

As for your use of adjectives- it's not the adjectives that bother me- it's your VERBS. A crash is not a landing. You shouldn't be trying to influence people's purchasing decisions with lies. Just tell it straight up from the start and things wouldn't explode like this.

...i put the heli in from about ten feet in the air while attempting to auto...it didn't hit very hard..
I've done much worse when I was still using the stock head with no damage to the block. It does make you (me) wonder why it cracked. I guess its all in how it hits. Let us know how Kasama reacts.

Well I actually plan on repairing the Kasama head in the next month or so but I thought it would tell people that "hey, this happened to me after a hard landing.. look at your Kasama head when you get a chance"... not to spread lies about a product.

Again, I don't publish material on this forum to be heckled ......

Bottom line is the head cracked.....

"what comes up must come down"....softly of course

For the record, I didn't get you pinked.
Also, considering that I should be "F____ing" myself, I thought I'd chime in again here... Because there you go again:
hey, this happened to me after a hard landing..
You might not be posting this to be "heckled", but if you are telling people that this happened after a hard landing you are lying. Maybe you should check out the "What is a crash" thread.

Will keep a closer eye on my Kasama now
Appreciate you sharing your experience.

I'll check the Kasama head on my Raptor 50; just in case.

Thanks,

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

Yeah, I'm sure it was a fluke with mine but... if you got it apart may as well take a good look at it. I sent pictures to Kasama the other day.. still no response...
