After months of inquiring, pondering, waiting, and grinding of teeth I finally picked up a new rotor head assembly. Prior to this I was looking to get a new rotor head assembly for my Eagle 3 SWM belt drive kit so I posted an intent to buy at the WTB section of this forum. I had a few offers, but some of them are not in good condition. Of course it should be assumed that all used items are not in their perfect shape. So it was hard for me to decide.

I finally reached out to MRC to see if I could get one. It's all thanks to Dr. Ben and Mr. Boyce of MRC that I was able to get my hands on this really nice masterpiece. It drips of quality and craftsmanship.

Here's the pictures:

On the last photo I placed a couple of pieces of old plastic hoses on the head button and blade grips to prevent metal-to-metal contact and nick or ding the very nice blue anodizing. Yes, I admit....I'm anal with my stuff. I like my items pristine and clean.

When I got this item I found out that I had a few other stuff that I need to put this. I got use to the previous Hirobo head assemblies (SSZ-IV) where the radius block and links are included. With this kit it's just purely the head assembly. You have to buy the slide/radius blocks and links to complete it. Looks like I have to go to either Heliproz or Ron Lund to order the missing items.

Undoubtedly, one of the best heads ever made for a model helicopter.

Have fun!

Thanks Los Hirobo and Agilefalcon. Just waiting on the radius block (0414-465) and links/link ends before enjoying it.
