Woolf, any news on the head? Keen to find out how it flyes as I have an 800 size SSM Huey and need a scale head. Currently running 800mm M blades and 26cc zenoa with a Mikado head. Flyes very scale.

Heard from Ron at Just Scale in Auzzie that he has the heads available. Great! But before I spend the $600 bucks I want to know that it is going to be worh it and not just another chinese head that I have to modify or throw away (had 2 like this so far!).

Dear all,

sorry for my late reply's to your question but i have the past times a lot of business trip of my job.

The Head on my Huey works very well in combination with the MicroBeast Beast-X flybarless system and SAB 810mm Scale Blades....until...i lost the Huey on a testflight.

Reason i think was an defective battery, so in an height about 5 meters i lost sudden power and a i have no chance of autorotation. The huey ist totaly destroyd and parts of the head where bent.

In the moment i build a new Huey with the Smartmodel Scale Head..so i will inform you when i have news and videos of the builded Huey with the Scale Head.

By the way I would say thank you to Kin from Smartmodel for the fantastic support after my crash to build a new Huey...thank you Kin.

Best regards
Wolfgang

Yep, $400 NZD landed plus the $200 or more I will have to spend to get a 3G, BeastX, Skokum etc to make it work. I'm not saying its not worth it, I just saying that before I go spending that sort of coin, I want rigid and defined guarentes that its not going to be just another chinese head that requires modification/balancing to work. Call me pessimistic, but I have been bitten twice so far and its cost me

Ah..ok I see you are adding in the cost of the Beastx etc.... i knew the head was not that expensive... The beast is definitly worth the money anyway you decide to go..
I am running a "Modified" Aurora FBL head on my Vario because they wanted over 400$ for their FBL head..125$ vs 400..! And it looks and flies GR8!! Coupled with the "Beastx" it is on rails.

I received the new head from smartmodel. I just test fitted the head on the RCA 800 huey fuse and it looks great. I will test flight the head on my already flying 600 MD500 flybarless heli next weekend. What I'm planning to do is to remove the align flybarless head from the MD500 and simply install the smartmodel flybarless head then do the zero pitch for a quick test hover. This way, i can check for issues of vibration, balancing etc if any and hopefully none. Then, if everything goes smoothly, i will test it with the longer main shaft and fabricate the linkages to raise the swash for huey. The head does not use a 1 piece feathering shaft, instead it has a pair of shaft for each blade grips. I think the reason for this is because the blade grips are angled like a butterfly. Will keep you posted.

Hi Vinceisip,

looks fine. What flybarless system and blades are you using on your Huey,and what setup do you use?
You will see, the head works really good. My new Huey is also ready soon.

Just wanted to give an update regarding the the Huey head. IMO, the head works great and balanced out with most likely zero tolerance. I flew it with light to moderate banking turns and went well. I installed it in a already flying chaos 600 mechanics with MD500 fuselage for testing. It works well and great. Next testing is to use the longer main shaft and see how it performs.

Thanks Kin, it was worth the wait. Surely after I finish the huey project and if everything goes well, i'll take it to a funfly in the future for show & tell.

Good info. Did you notice any extra stability with the dyhedral build into the head block?

Not really. Maybe because the heli that I tested it with is too short. I wasn't able to use a 600mm blade because the grips are 14mm & the holes for the blade are larger so I was forced to use a 690 blade for testing. The main blades is on top of the tail blades and maybe that is a factor. Nevertheless, the md500 was very stable. Like what I said IMO, it works and it works well. I can't wait to test it with the longer Huey main shaft and with the 800mm main blades. I'll keep u updated once I finish the mechanics.

Hello All,

I have this same head - got it from RCA. I use it with my RCA/CHAOS UH-1N - the one with the mechs all contained in the doghouse. I'm using it with HC3SX and 713 Edge blades. It flys great! Nice slow banking turns, and GREAT hover - combination of the dihedral and the HC3, I think. In any case, I'm very happy with it and it looks cool! There are pics in my gallery from early in the build - at that time, it was just sitting on the shaft. I've now taken the heli apart so that I can do an extensive "scale-I-zation" to it. I have been informed that the nose is a bit off, which doesn't bother me personally, but I understand from Barry that's being fixed. I'm sanding, riveting, paneling, etc., then re-painting. I also got the scale cockpit kit and I think it's great, but I'm relatively new to scale.

I think it might be possible to use 800 blades with this ship. there is still plenty of room between the mains and TR.

I dig this head.
