Question
Trex 450 pro rotor head parts and Trex 450XL parts

Hi, i need a new rotor head for my Belt CP. Id like to use some metal parts from the align t-rex 450pro. But use some plastic parts like main blade grips for the Align T-rex 450XL. Are these parts interchangable?

Heck, I would just get all new full CNC head and tails from Copter X or EXI helis for less then a couple packs of control arms from Align.

The 450Pro and 450XL grips are not interchangeable. You can interchange the 450SE (not 450SE2) grips with the 450XL grips.

If you want a T-rex style head on the Belt CP, the best bet is to get a full head; everything from the swash up not including the swash. Use either an Align-style main shaft upside-down or a Belt CP main shaft. Use a Blade 400 swash, but replace the upper ball links with the proper 3.5mm links (I think the BeltCP swash doesn't have the clearance to do this). Or better yet, just buy a new airframe and kick the BeltCP to the can.

+1, dont get me wrong I loved my BeltCP. But when you consider the cost of a CopterX frame (which includes all the CNC Head and Tail) and the quality improvements over the BeltCP (better fitting ball links and direct to swash mixing) I have to consede it is the better bird. Also, replacement part costs or not that much different.
This is what I bought, but visit the CopterX thread and check this is the current best deal.

Hi again, if i use just a Trex 450 pro swashplate will the rest of the Esky head still work? Im getting a new frame so the stock swash has wrong servo location.
