Yes but who is "TITAN Helicopter" and why are a bunch of apparent Trex 450 clones listed alongside them under the same brand name? Just because the pictures are of a real Mini Titan doesn't mean the kit is a real Mini Titan.

The price is what gives it away, Just like oomodel has about the highest prices for a real Align.

I think Beenflying is your man - though his Tarot DFC head was black with orange grip arms. Tarot must have a dozen 450 FBL heads now, and most if not all can use the improved 4mm feathering spindle with the thrust bearing onboard of the outer grip bearing.

The DFC heads also use a shorter mainshaft and sit lower.

But still, who is "TITAN helicopter" and why are Mini Titans being sold under the same brand name as clone 450's? Doesn't this strike you as being a little suspicious?

I'm pretty sure that's just a silver version of the black and red one. The silver arms and links would look nicer than the red ones on the black head I think.

Some new VCTRC 3G main blades and random parts I just received last week. Blades look and feel as strong as the Tarot 3G blades I once had. Very stiff.

Will do. I'm interested in seeing if the TT gears are molded true unlike some other parts I have received before.

I just got my HK 450TT Pro FBL. Is there an adjustable tail servo mount to accommodate different servo sizes? My D-MG16 is a little short:

There sure is! There's this one



or there are also adaptors you can buy to fit onto the standard servo mount.

Strictly speaking, they're not adjustable - but you could elongate the holes or drill new holes to re-position the cross bar piece.

I've seen servo adaptors on eBay sorry don't have a link to hand and the internet is slow for me today!

BF...you don't want to even hear the prices for some of the parts. For example.

pack of 2 feathering shafts with allen screws ~ 0.55 cents
pack of 2 main shafts ~ 1.25
pack of 5 main gears ~ 1.65
main blades however alot more...1 for 9.66
then the shipping was dhl 3 days..32 bucks..

I wanted spare blades and parts for the 500 as well but the shipping was getting too high...something tells me I might end up impulse buying the 550 combo from them and the spare parts...
