Yep , mine are EXI and HK 450pro. All you need is the align dfc head and shaft or the HK dfc or other with swash followers . I have both and like the HK ONE better because it comes with the swash for 24.00 .

There is no swash with this one , just a main shaft, and head, links ,arms . I am not sure if the feathering shaft is there either . I think I still have one in the package I can check .

HK sells a few different units

Then this ,no swash

Then with the swash

They all do the same thing so it's just a preference of which you like best .
I have all 3 , align , HK DFC swash included and the non DFC. All fly the same .

I just recieved an extra V450D01 V2 RX.. Now with a FBL conversion this RX should work. Servos need to retate using this RX as you can not revese any with TX. If you do gyros go bunkers.
