Flight problems with Trex 450L

I bought a used 450. When I got it it had a stripped gear on one of the ds430Ms. I replaced that with a ds416m since I saw somewhere that the 430 is discontinued and replaced by the 416.
We went through the Gpro FBL setup and I replaced all linkage ends.
We ran the 450 up to a little over half stick and had not lifted off. We let it sit a second with no stick movement. Suddenly it started to roll to the left and had a Blade strike. Of course the swash to blade linkages pulled with the strike. We have no idea what happened.
Has anyone had this problem or have an idea of what to look for?

When you mix and match servos not a good idea. They should be all the same. I know who wants to change all three but Could be problem ?

That is what I was thinking. I have new gear set for the 430m odd thing is itcsat there without stick movement before it tilted.

Align 450L is pretty good heli. Mix and match cylic servos not wise. Jamed servo can cause problems. I have seen servo work but were damaged and it shows up flying. Most times that doesn't end well.

Rebuilt the 430m servo and put back into play.
What is the best RX/TX combination for the Trex. I have a Turnigy 9xr pro. The DSMX module (orange HK module) died on me. Looking for other options. Trex has a Spektrum satellite on it but willing to change.
