Hello All

Never though I would own one because there were hard to find in the early 2000s.

Back in my early electric heli research when a Logo 20 was state of the art and a PCM Rx was the best we could get people were doing everything possible to improve their e helis.

There was a web site from a guy in Asia that did a lot of motor testing and tested them on Mikado Logos, EP Concept SR and I believe the Eco 8 (my first E heli...still have a highly upgraded one).

One of the configuration of the EP Concept SR had the Z-11 head on it and at that point I wanted one but could never get one.

I saw one used on eBay about a decade ago but never baught it. I accidently found 2 on eBay that was restricted to Euro sales, I contacted the supplier and he adjusted the ad so I could buy it too and I did.

I now have a new old stock Z-11 rotor head and it quite nice. Still smells like machine oil since it has a light coating to protect the metal parts.

Anyone else looking for a rare rc heli part?

Enjoy
C

It moves the flybar pivot over the rotor blades disk...like a Mikado Logo.

The stock EP Concept SR head had the flybar pivot on the same plane as the rotor disk.

For from a flight preformance stand point I have no idea the difference in feel. But this head is much higher quality than the stock head.
