Default My new FBL head explodes

I fitted a new FBL .50 sized head supplied by Hobbyking and packaged as an RJX unit to my 600esp along with a Skookum 720.

After several nights of setup I spooled it up this evening and just short of lift off the head exploded.

One blade glanced off my leg with no damage to me and the other flew across the park

The feathering shaft is still in one grip and the other grip is intact with the shaft screw still in it

Both blades are damaged but the main shaft etc seem to be OK

On taking it apart it appears that one feathering shaft screw has pulled out of its thread with the obvious consequences

As you can imagine I am not impressed and have emailed HK with a demand for replacement parts including new blades
