Scale rotor heads


Who makes a good quality 3, 4 and 5 blade scale rotor heads for a T-Rex 450, 500 and 600? Thinking about making my scale helicopters more scale with a good multi rotor head.
Thank you in advance

Still gassin' it.
TBH, in those sizes I can't think of any real scale multiblade heads... 600 size maybe, but smaller I have not yet seen.

450 size:
CopterX and similar heads: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000...bce312b29QQ8Td
These can also be found on ebay from time to time and work quite well. They have 3, 4, and 5 blade heads available.

There are also some DFC 3/4 blade heads out there, mostly on Aliexpress or ebay: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001...149226c1CvlCHn

500 size:
Align has an excellent 4 blade head out there: https://www.helidirect.com/products/...0145-t-rex-500

Double Cats RC carries 3/4/5 blade heads as well, but you will need to email them for availability. Last I heard they were moving their machine shop, and would be producing heads again sometime in November: https://www.double-cats.com/. They also carry 600 and 700 size heads.

600 size:
Motion RC has 4 and 5 blade heads:
- 4 blade: https://www.motionrc.com/products/ro...ead-10mm-swash
- 5 blade: https://www.motionrc.com/products/ro...ead-10mm-swash

Aeropanda carries custom order multiblade 600 heads: https://www.aeropanda.com/products/s...nt=25295778761


..and Double Cats RC as previously mentioned.

Hope this helps!

Cool thank you so much that helps a lot! I tried looking on motion RC but couldn't find them. That's where I got a few of my fuselages at.

No problem! Motion definitely has them fairly hidden on the site. You can find just the head assembly pretty easily, but the full PNP setup including the swash is difficult to find.
