Help!
Trex 700E DFC crash

This weekend I crashed my heli on take off, and bent the rear tail assembly beyond repair. Does anybody know where I can get a whole new tail section/assembly minus the fin, and grips, and tail pitch assembly... but including the shaft, gears, "side plates" bearings, screws, and everything else basically I want an align product, and not KDE or garret? Or what parts to order I just can't seem to find align pieces. Or I just am not calling it the correct words. Thanks in advance!!!

Helidirect as Dejavu said and another good East Coast choice is Esprit Model. Nice guys, fast shipping.

So I have a DS650 tail servo, I broke the horn on it, can someone show me what metal servo horn to get for it? Or what do y'all recommend? Either a link or a model number would be awesome just cause there are like a million different types and sizes. Just a standard single arm servo horn should do the job. Thank again. I appreciate the input!!!!

Personally on the tail servo i'd stick with plastic arms. They provide better centre point adjustment (because they have the choice of four arm positions rather than one on metal). And they act as a weak link preventing servo gear train damage.

You only risk breaking them in the most severe of tail strikes, carry a spare.

I agree, servos are expensive to replace, so the plastic ones are probably a better choice. De you recommend a specific servo horn that'll work?

Any four-arm horn with Futaba splines is fine, the stock Align ones are as good as any. Just power up and centre the servo then turn the horn untill you find the arm that sits dead centre in the position you require. You can then cut the other three arms off if you like.
