I've used their 5 blade head on my 500 size AH-6 and it has worked excellent. Very good quality for the price!

price is what drew me to that.. very scale looking, looks to be well designed and all metal aside from the 3 o rings. so since it uses 12mm root blades, for now i think i'll order a 3 pack of the 550 size align blades. that way the head will be an excuse to go scale flybarless. already got the turnigy 3 axis V2 gyro unit, just need the cable set up.

Another option for the 350 would be their scale starflex head. Much more accurate to scale than the other version, and from the same manufacturer: https://www.double-cats.com/index.ph...&product_id=50
