Quality of MA machines is outstanding...be prepared for it to quickly become you favorite brand and heli.

I know the RJX will work but you need to get an OEM head on that thing!...

The MA head is $234
http://www.ronlund.com/rcheli-prod/X...MA128-310.html

The I2 is $296
http://www.rc-tek.com/us_store/i-rc...ead-p2256.html



From an sthetics standpoint alone and having a matching finish on all the parts I would go MA.

That's with a swash I wouldn't need,I know ma has great quality but I highly doubt the ma head is better than the I2 head.just to expensive for a factory head

To each there own. Not questioning the quality of I2 products. I have one of there swash's on my 500 and it is outstanding!

However, I personally don't see any aftermarket parts as an "upgrade" to a MA machine and prefer them stock.

Either way your gonna love your new machine!

I would usually be on board with you,but I can't see paying that much for so basic a head,if I had a kit that was fbl from the jump I would leave it be,but considering the I2 head would be around the same price with no swash its a no brainer.I2 is a upgrade for any heli,if I had a tdr I would try to fit a I2 head,I think they are the best money can buy

I have used I2 stuff on my old Trex 500 and the quality/customer service is great just as the MA stuff is. If I was to use ANY other head on my Furion 6 it would be I2 for sure. I understand your point as to getting the better deal not needing the swash.
