Personally, i have my eyes set on the Tarot tail blade grips. They have updated Align's design with thrust bearings. They should fit just about any 450 clone or compatible. I think.....I'm going to order some for my highly modified V450D01. I think they should fit that too. Since the V450d01 is using what is essentially 450 sport or V1 mechanics with the belt drive. Something like that. It's kind of a clone with their own airframe. So i'm pretty sure the Align tail shaft, tail grips, tail boom, drive belt, tail drive gears. Basically everything will fit the V450D01. It's just that Align uses a different size ball on their cyclic and swash than Walkera. So some small differences.

Anyway, i digress. I plan on installing the Tarot tail grips because they have thrust bearings. Then i will also install the Align or Tarot or Alzrc DFC/SDC rotor head. Since the V1 V450D01 rotor heads and swash are basically discontinued.
