Default LH or CCW FBL rotor head needed for scale project

Looking to source a FBL rotor head for a 700 size scale helicopter with a 10mm main shaft. Must be LH/CCW rotation. CNC alloy preferred over plastic.

Try sk-rotorkopf.de in Germany. Top notch machine work and some you have the choice of silver or black finish.

As keyrigger said, SK Rotorkoph is an excellent option. Roban also has a 10mm head that works for either direction (Motion RC). Vario carries a few as well, as does Aero Panda. Any of the 600 size heads listed here should work: https://www.hobbysquawk.com/forum/rc...s-450-800-size. I put this list together a while ago to make it easier to source scale heads.

I am probably showing my ignorance but I wasn't aware that rotor heads came in LH and RH orientation. Normally you would just rotate the grips around to whatever side you want (depending on whether you wanted leading or lagging control from the swashplate).


I bought mine 4 blade rotor head (and swashplate & swash follower) from Ludwig Benda years ago for my 4x 820mm EC-145 set up with 4 CCW/LH blades from HeliTec. Not quite as exotic looking as the SK-Rotorkopf heads but a LOT cheaper and from memory (many sleeps ago - 7 years) Benda also reduced the price by the German VAT (14% I think) to Australia, whereas SK-R would not.

Look under LD Products, Rotor heads, 700 class, 4 blade - available in 10mm and 12mm (or 14mm or 15mm) shafts.


You don't mention how many blades, so I assumed 4 blade, but they do offer from 2 blade to 8 blade in 700 sized.
