Does it use a spindle and dampeners or do the grips bolt right into the head block? It looks like there is a feathering shaft in the pics but I've read that the head is like the Gaui head with no dampening.

If you look at the picture of the parts included with the head (see http://www.powerrchobbies.com/product/1743/179), it looks like it uses the same o-ring dampeners that the flybarred head uses. (They're the row of 4 black rings below the ball links on the right side of the photo, just above the head button.)

Yeah, that's what I mean. It looks like a feathering shaft and o-rings, but like I said, I read that the grips bolt right into the head like the Gaui. Just trying to clear this up with someone who knows for sure.

It uses O Ring dampers and a cross shaft. The grips are not bolted directly to the head.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.

The CA keeps the o-rings firmly planted to where they do not get rolled around and chewed up over time! Makes the head a bit stiffer in the process as well.
