Could this frame be used as an upgrade on the
new Hurri 425EP IRCHA 2009 plastic version?

You will need in addition to the plastic frame;
CNC boom clamps
CNC CF Frame spacer 4pcs
CNC Mainshaft bearing block
2pcs Mainshaft bearings
Assorted hardware to fasten all the parts together.

Dont forget the Upper Tail drive shaft bearing block!!

Yes the head hunter frame can be run as a 425 if you wish as Erik stated above you do need a few extra parts from teh CF version.

Hope this helps

Hey Ronnie

There are a fair few pros and in my mind not many cons!!
(although i am a little bias!)

The main frame is much stiffer than the original Gaui Carbon Frame
It is made from 2mm carbon.

It has direct to swash 120degree servo mounting which eleiminates the bell cranks for the servos its a more simple design and easier to set up.
Reduced interactions during swash movement.

The full frame set includes the big Balls Bearing Blocks which allows for much larger bearings on te OWB shaft.

The full kit also includes the Easy Mesh Motor Mount that allows much easier meshing of the pinion and gears. It also allows quick removal of motor. It also inlcudes an additional frame brace.

Its design from the strat to mount 6s Packs in one location and it is very secure with up to three velco straps.

And best of all its WAY COOL!! (subjective I know)

Cons could be its a little tricky to mount a separate flight pack on the frame. It was designed around a system using a BEC.

The servos are no longer push pull they are direct to swash so there is more loading on the servo output shaft although I believe most modern servos on a heli this size can cope no problem.

Its not the cheapest frame set around due to the low numbers its manufactured in. But i am looking into revising the prices very soon.

Hope this helps

OK Guys

I have been talking to my Courrier and have strucka deal with him.

I am now able to offer you guys Free WORLDWIDE shipping on all Head Hunter Heli Upgrades.

Its a good service through DHL and its total trackable. Most items should take about 4 working days to the USA.

I need to shift some more kits to recoupe some money for the next batch and for other developments.

Cheers all

Ben

You're very welcome, Ben!

Truth be told, I can't wait to show this off! It's gonna be a couple of weeks, though... but that's cool, it gives me something to do besides crash!

Thanks for the info Ben,
really great disign!

One pro, or con, I'm missing is something about the weight?

Although I'm planning on upgrading my std 425 to
handle some longer blades, 463 or 475mm, and a
torque tube, I was wondering if the Head Hunter carbon
frame was any lighter than the plastic or other carbon frames
on the market?

let me get this straight... you want longer blades AND the torque tube tail... hate to be the one to tell ya... but.... the TT is only for the 425 boom.. to use 463 or 475 blades you'll be the short 550 boom (part# 204192) and the TT won't work on that boom.

of course you are more than welcome to run the 425 boom and TT and 475 blades.. just make sure ya get it on video so everyone can see how fast you can disassemble a hurri in flight
