Anyone know when Align will offer their head w/o electronics?

Which head do you prefer and why? Which gives best symmetry, response?
I2
Mikado Metal
RJX
Kasama
Or some other

Thanks for sharing.

I can only compare 2 on a T500 - Align vs RJX

RJX - better deal
1) Antirotation arms bolt to rotor head eliminating phasing issues
2) Pitch arms are separate from grips allowing for less expensive crash repair.
3) Reasonable price
4) Crash parts are already available

I looked at I2, too expensive for my wallet and while beautifully machined, I did not see any advantage for the extra expense.

I priced the Align head for my 500ESP from the big vendors and it was around $100. Hoping to use the Total G FBL system on the new soon to be released 700E, and throw the Align 3g on my 500ESP with the $100 head

Different!

The picture on Aligns web site is wrong unless you click on it and get into the item specs. The FBL blade grips are like the 700's, they are a different style. My guess is that they did this for a reason, they wouldn't add a part just to add it. I think its a performance related change....

The ball links are mounted further out from the spindle. This is the case with most if not all FBL heads.

There's more to precision then just looks.

Man, I hope I don't get pinked for this but I just couldn't let that go.
