I just completed the Eco tail conversion to the VE. You can use the stock VE 3mm tail shaft and pulley. I got all the needed items at FXAeromodels.com. Here are the part numbers:

67549.....hub
67542.....grips
67566.....1x6x3 bb's...order 2 bags(4 total bb's)
67544......steering link
67564......ball cups
67576......balls
PVPS......bb tail slider upgrade

You will also need four 2mm screws and a couple 2mm nuts for the balls and ball cups.

The total cost is around $60 and that includes a $25 bb tail slider upgrade.

Now you can just replace the grips for $7 a set or indivdual BB's for $11 a pair. With the VE version you have to buy the entire tail grip w/BB's assembly for $45.

With the Eco you can individually shim each ball cup to track the tail blades. You can't do that on the stock VE tail.

There's a pic of the Eco tail assemlbly on a stock VE shaft in my gallery.
