I'm going with this head for my Wessex HC2 from New Zealand powered by an T-Rex 600E.

No swash follower/driver or special swash plate required with this design. All metal - no plastic. I have three on different heli's and no elctronic stabilization aids are required. Once installed you'll have perfect 90 degree blade phasing. Try one you'll like it.

Out of all I have seen, I prefer the design of the Sportsmoto head. The grips look to be of more robust design. Thanks

Hoverup,

are they very easy to set up? and you say you dont use any stabilization at all? how is forward flight?

if i would get one AND add, say, and sk-360, how would it perform,IMO??

and can a guy get the large "cap" that the century head has, for the rcaerodyne one, as it looks "more sacale" as some birds have a large cap like that in "real life", for lack of a better term....

im thinking of building an EC 135 with fennestron tail in 600 size next winter...( as im building an AirWolf in 600 this winter!)

Mine do not balloon in FFF without stabilization.

It would be even easier. If you are a new heli pilot, get the Skookum.

Bought a Vario cap for mine.

Copter Doctor - which one, the Sportsmoto head ?

I've just done a trial assembly of it and it goes together very nicely. Pretty good tolerances and decent machining.

Sea King - the ebay head you linked was the Sportsmoto head. In the last of the 3 pic I originally posted, the grips themselves look to be a little weak. Still haven't figured out who the manufacturer is.

ya, i asked cause the link posted showed a head at rc aerodynes site.. and when i clicked on the 700 size and saw that 3 bladed head it looks like a good option for my bt.. since the real one had real short axles like that one...

otherwise im going with a vario head with some modifications/swap out of the grips to single hole from two hole

I like the diamond heads and the RCA plug-n-play head. With the RCA unit, I remove the "J" arm and go direct to the swash, as I do my phasing electronically in the vbar program. Both heads are well build. The diamond heads have a 10mm removeable sleeve so you can run them on 90 size machines with 12mm mainshaft. The diamond 5 blade head IMHO is more suited to a 90 size scaler, as it has a large diameter span and looks a bit oversized on a 50 size scaler.

RCA Plug-n-play with direct to swash links. I really like the pressed in steel blade grip bushings. They save the hole from being boogered when you tighten the bolt.

Diamond full billet alum 5 blade head. Note how robust the grips and axles are. Same feature with blade grip bushings, very well built. This head has a very large span. IMHO, Diamond should offer this head in 2 versions, one for 50 size with shorter axles and pitch arms and the other in 90 size. Or just make it exclusively for a 90 size machine.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
