I think the tail boom conversion set will be enough, but I'll probably end up replacing my tail blades with kbdd tail blades since I like orange tail blades Just pick your 550 blades carefully, as the bolt that holds the main blades is 3mm on the plastic grips, and keep the headspeed below 1900rpm (unless you upgrade to metal grips).

You can see a full list of parts for the 425/550 here:

The cnc levers are #204612 and #204614. I believe you only need #204614, as the aileron and pitch levers have holes to remove the offset already.
Thank you for your reply.

Can you recommend some sites that sell sapre parts with good prices?

I like it as a 425. I did buy the 550 stretch kit, and blades but have not used them. My stretched 550 was a little faster on top end, and a little slower on cyclic. The 550 tail rotor blades, and canopy are longer.
Thank you for your reply.
