Thereís no photo in the listing, but itís most likely the copterX 450 Head. Quality is good, itís been the go-to and pretty much only choice for most multiblade 450 conversions. You may have to use some bigger tail blades to compensate for the highe torque of the 5 blade though.

I don't know what is wrong with the posting not showing the photo . It was showing on eBay and now it is not . Here is a photo of the head. Does not look like the black and gold CopterX this one is all silver

Looks like the copterX. Their newer heads are that color, not the black/gold. I just picked up their 3 and 4 blade heads a few weeks ago, and they are the same color

The thing with the 450 size multi blade heads are the cheap phasing clamp.

Is there a better phasing clamp that can be used as a replacement ?


Thanks

I havenít found one. I may have to ď McGiverĒ one. I have a 5 blade one and there is too much slop to keep the blades phased properly.
I tried a 3 blade copter x once. It worked good for 9 flights. On the 10 take off, getting light on the skids, it suddenly jumped off the ground and straight over on the head, total loss. The only thing I found probable cause was the phasing clamp screw was missing the head

I just wanted to make sure that I know what part you are referring to .
As I have found out sometimes you get into trouble for assuming.


Can you post a photo of the phasing clamp you are talking about ?


Thanks

Itís the part that clamps to the main shaft to keep the push rods at whatever angle you set them to

Ive heard a Gaui x5 (phasing clamp) is a perfect fit for 450 multi blade heads. No personal experience but worth checking it out.
