Hey there guys, i bought a 450xl hde about a year ago, and due to my massive workload (don't do mechatronic engineering unless really like it) at uni, i'm finally having a bit of time off.

I constructed this baby a year ago, and she's still a virgin (when it comes to flying )

I'm looking around and there aren't many sites still offering parts for it like before, and i keep seeing the new SE v2's. Is it possible to use parts from the SE v2 for the HDE? I know mine isn't CCPM but is is possible to convert? Or am i screwed? I spent like 240 aud on this heli and i don't want it to goto waste

you can pretty much upgrade everything, but the swash and chassis is different to ccpm
also, how much are u willing to spend?

and you can meet a great bunch of guys at Whalan Reserve on Sat/Sun mornings from 7:30am who ALL fly a T-Rex.

!boo!

I originally had a the HDE kit. I converted it to an SE by purchasing the align carbon chassis, and all metal head unit with 120deg swash. you can leave the tail alone unless you must have the metal tail unit. I also purchased a linkage rod kit for an SE. I like the 120deg setup compared to the HDE. The HDE seemed like it had elevator problems when flying...coulda just been on my kit.

PS...if money is an issue the 3DX head will work on the Trex. 124.00 at helihobby. Look around for the chassis, some places are cheaper.

A cheap option if you just want to convert from HDE to CDE is the Align conversion kit HS1092 this comes with a CDE swash, HS1093 this one doesnt.
