I've kicked this around in my head for quite a while and it's time to decide. Has anyone tried both? I want the best flight characteristics and dependability. Does either one have both qualifications, or do I have to choose between flight characteristics and durability?
Price difference between the two is negligible and not a consideration.
..........and, who is the best distributor for either?

I haven't flown both, but the G-force setup allows you to continue using your stock spindle, grips, and bearings. So if you have those parts as spares, you are always ready to go. No worrying about stocking different brands of parts.

If you skip me I can't play!

Thanks PJRono.
I hadn't thought about the built in spares aspect. That's a big plus.
Does the G-Force deliver all the expected wow of FBL conversion?

The G-force FBL conversion takes ALOT of weight off from the stock head. It's not as pretty as some of the smoothed off units but works very well. My two R90s are both converted to them and have never flown better. You also get the benefit of using different O-rings for dampening. The conversion kits can be ordered directly from G-force's website.

if you can just get the g-force headblock, you can use G4 parts for everything else as well. Maybe 700E parts too, I haven't measured them.

Excellent information guys.
I have never heard anything negative about the G-Force unit.
I have only heard one issue with the RJX......that the plating begins to peel off with time on some units.
Spare parts from the Thunder Tiger line is a huge plus for the G-Force since I already have several and they are easy to obtain.
The G-Force is looking like a winner from this standpoint.
Anyone willing to speak up for RJX?

The rjx is a good sturdy head but parts seem to be hard to come by these days as im finding out.

I ordered the G-Force from A-Main this morning. This and an O.S. 105HZ should wake up my Raptor 90SE.

Thanks for all replies.
