What's a good replacement head for a Walkera Dragonfly 4?

I have a Walkera Dragonfly 4 and the screws that hold the main rotor secure have stripped (Main rotor Head and fastener assembly). Can I use the GWS main rotor head on the Walkera and get a Carbon fiber stiffener. I can no longer tighten my blades and they just flop all over the place.

Any suggestions?

I went with all Century stuff. However if you do change the head, you will have to use other parts that work with that particular head. The Century head/blades now fly by df#4 and it works very well.

GWS heads and blade mounts are a good replacement as well.

I just got some longer M2.5 screws and put nuts with lockwashers on top of the head.

Just make sure you order the whole head assembly as swapping just the rotorheads doesn't work. Also the main shaft on the DF4 is not cylindrical at the top like others (I think). I think one of the other guys went with GWS stuff and posted everything on here somewhere, It might've been Dacaur.

I've done what Autoair did and it's fine.
