I dunno. If you look at my size comparison photos, the swash plate is the exact same size. Also, I'm going from a *PLASTIC* swash to a 7075 aluminium one, I can't think that the e-smart OEM swash is stronger than the Align one.

As for the rest of the head, folks are flying Trex 500 ESP heads with insane head speeds (over 3000+ RPM) -- I think we should be ok with our much more sedate headspeeds. But I'm not going there yet as my head seems fairly ok.


p.s. It does make me think, though, that if e-sky were (ever) to start up production of the ES600 again and put in some design changes, they should make the main shaft 10mm (and perhaps give us modulus equivalence with the Trex 600 main gear) while they're at it.
