Has anyone checked the phasing on this head (http://www.helidirect.com/trex-500-flybarless-head-p-14256.hdx)? I'm debating which head to buy for a T500 flybarless setup and I wonder if having no adjustment for phasing will be a problem.

Beyond the phasing question, the price for this head is the same as the price of the Mikado conversion (http://www.readyheli.com/MIK4167_V_Bar_Rotorhead_for_T_Rex_500_p/mik4167.htm). I like the look of the blade grip arms better on the HD head but not sure if they'll be any better in use than the Mikado extensions. Comments?

This conversion works fine and flies better than the modded stock head. Not only does it look better than mikado's deal it also is way more value for your money. The Vbar preset for the T-rex works too because you use the same swashplate.

I have not dialed in any phasing and it flies more than adequate for any type of flying. However phasing is not only related to the head but also the blades. If you like to have a perfect setup you should double check your phasing every time you buy (a) new (type of) blades. This must be done at the field by flying. It's impossible to measure and do it at the bench.
