J\'s Alu Head...............MAN
It's really late, but I've just had my first
flight with J's aluminium CP head.
I've got to tell you it's awesome, you've all seen
the pictures, but it flies even better then it looks.
I had complained that the initial cyclic response
( ie when hovering ) was not as good as std
FP with tuning blades. The Ikarus CP heads that
I've seen are all warped in some way, either
blade grips or flybar or both like mine.
J's head spools up really smooth and the hover
response is slight and relaxed although you have to watch
if it starts to wander. I already have +15
exponential on my cyclics for CP and now have 30%
and was slinging the pic from one corner of the living room to the next, the response in all aspects( other
than tail ) is just like my shuttle just10 times
faster. Can't wait to try it outside.
Well done J, and the holes for the 4mm bearings were perfect.
As the holes in the lightweight version of the head
only support top and bottom I was worried they would be too tight and make the bearings rough, but they were
perfect, just snapped straight in.
It looks bloody good too.

Shuttle- but it's really cold.
Re: J\'s Alu Head...............MAN
you are the first to fly it other than my self and it's really good to hear that it was not just a feeling I had when I think it fly much better now.
And that, other than the tail, it's like flying any bigger cp electric.
No need for a Piccolo pro now!! Ikarus should have asked me first
