Have anyone tried this head with 600 mech and 800 blades??

Saw it on Skyhunters......http://www.skyhunterhobbys.com/Trex-...m-UH-1600H.htm

Yep, that's the one I'm talking about..... The other problem with it is that the grips are too small for anything bigger than 690 blades (12mm grips)

And, to answer your last question, I went back to my custom flybarless head that I have been flying....It's not scale.. but it flies great and is flybarless..

I have been waiting..(2 years) for a "flapping blade" scale head that Kin was going to build me w/12mm shaft.. but, have yet to see it.

exactly!! cept the 12mm version. It's made by CNC products. In his defense, He did send me parts to fix it... but, I don't know if I want to take the chance ? Also the blade grips are too small for my 810mm blades.

Ok. Then I know. I have also looked for the flapping head Kin sold before, that head looks nice, but I don't know if the 10mm version had 14mm blade grips. I don't know if the 2 UH-1 heads he had were different more than the shaft size 10 and 12 mm.

But anyway....they are out of stock!!

FYI , Kin has partnered up with DEAO now but he is still showing the UH-1 head in stock and for sale on his SmartModel website but it is only available in 10mm shaft with 14mm grips. They always used a T-Rex type 600 mechanics in their 800 size UH-1 they just changed the side frames and used their own design which is the reason for the 10mm shaft.

I only heard a very few reveiws about it and they never seemed to be very good , never really got to many details on it but that he made it backwards or upsidedown .
He put the teeter bearing at the top and most people thought it should have been like the real 1:1 and on the bottom however he did get the blade dihedral correct.

DEAO is now making a new line on scale heads that is pretty much a direct clone of the Vario 2 bolt blade grip that worked so well for them. They have a thread on here so it might be worth asking if there is any plans to bring it back or maybe redesign it to look more like the correct 1:1 head.

Yes I have conversed with DEAO at length and he seems like a good guy. Hopefully Kin's lack of performance on items "promised" will not affect his decision making.
But , no, there is no plan to re-introduce or build a "Scale" Huey head.
And the "Flapping head" unit is only available in 10mm shaft size. I was promised a 12mm one 2 yrs ago.. to date none has surfaced...?

Your not the only one who Kin failed to fulfill his promises to , I ended up with many people disappointed with his lack to fulfill the promises he had made to me.
I have heard from many others who ended up thousands in the hole as they ordered fuslages and other items from him that he was not able to fill eather.

The one thing I don't understand about these HK companies is the way they announce months in advance about products they plan on coming out with. It seems to me if they would just wait till they have stock to sell then make an annoucement they would fair out a lot better and than wouldn't get caught with their pants down when they can't produce.
