size of esky honey bee king 3, honey bee cp3 main shaft

im looking for the shaft size of the esky honey bee king 3 and honey bee cp3 main shaft, because i want to put a new head on twister cp gold, i actuly flew it properly for once, with my first 3D and the plastic stock head has had the bomb, i know that the e-flite cp pro 2 aluminium head will fit, but it is overpriced (120 shipped) the 2 esky helis i mentioned are around the size of my heli, im wondering if the aluminium head will fit on my heli and the heads for thoses are realativley cheap, im not doing hard 3D just some gentle flips, so if anyone has either of those helis, please measue the diameter of the shaft and post it thanks

The King uses a 5mm shaft (same as the bigger 450 sized helis), the CP2 used a 3mm shaft, I believe the CP3 uses the same shaft.

There is a metal head for the CP3 but I haven't seen anybody who carries it yet.

xheli has a CNC Belt CP head that comes with the same shaft size as the King 3 and a CNC tail (all for $55). Just got it in the mail. The parts are reaalllyyy high quality. The only problem is that the shaft for that one has the holes slightly different than the King 3. I'm sure that for just a few bucks you can get any machine shop in the area to get the new shaft to match the holes on the original one, that's what I plan to do.
