Its nothing major, the head is to stop a bobbing that can occur at 1500RPM and the tail is not really a big deal, in actual fact the head design is not as visually pleasing.

Repair it now! No reason to wait.

Are there any pic.'s of this "new, not-so visually-pleasing" Head (?)
Any help greatly appreciated.

You can use a Compass Odin feathering shaft - this is 92mm long whereas the Henseleit is 90 mm - both 8mm diameter andtapped for M5 - either shim out the extra or take it off with a Dremel

No sorry, thats all I have. Delivery of the 2010 model will begin shortly so no doubt there will be a few photos soon as there is some other changes aside from the head block itsefl

It's not that much for a 700-class machine, things which hurt are canopy, blades and worst case electronics and batteries... of course dealing with Euros is always a pain for $-based pilots.

I'm amazed how resilient the canopy is - it's very flexible - a spare arrived from Henseleit with the packing trashed and I was able to push out the dent with no mark or gel cracking - I think it's epoxy resin. I have repaired my original from 2 major nose ins and it fixes up great with epoxy resin and glass

I agree not bad if you consider blades are included in that total, my brother just spend twice that on a logo 500 se crash!
