What are factor that make E325 more stable?
Is is the extra weight?
The rotor head design?
Longer main rotor dia?
Or the large flybar paddle?

It is the design. Thunder Tiger has been making helis for donkey years.

Puffs...goes the Lipo.

Will it work if I replace TREX fly paddle with E325?
And I used 335 blades?
And I use 2500mah lipo?

The T-rex is also a good 450 heli but some who own both think that the Mt is more stable.
I only have a MT and am very happy with it.

I don't believe it will make much difference if you start fitting MT stuff on a T-rex.
The MT is also bigger, has a longer boom.
The placement of the head, motor, servos etc. and resulting center of gravity is different, it's a complete different design.

It's best to use T-rex parts or good aftermarket parts on your T-rex IMO.
If you want a more stable or easier cyclic i would place some fly-bar weights instead.

As I understand it from the folk at the LHS the T-rex was designed specifically for 3D, at least thats what they say, therefore it is inherently more unstable than the Mini-t which was designed to appeal to a broader range of people. Also bear in mind that although it has had several diffrent versions with the latest being the v2se it is still the same general design which is now 3 or more years old.

I've never flown a rex and it was a toss up between it and the mini-t but I thought the whole design looked better thought out and you couldn't get a much easier heli to work on plus as has been mentioned TT have been in the game a little longer than align. That's not to say the rex isn't a great 450 size machine but I think the only reason it holds the vast share of the market is due mainly to it being the first good mass market 450 and everybody and his dog brought one at the time plus align delivered the backup and cheap spares, a bit like TT did with the raptor some 10 years back.

I have fly one year or so with trex starting from XL to SE and last upgraded to V2 head.

All i can say is that i have spent many times to let trex go like the way i like.

For JOKE i but a MT combo fr 200$ and with a BIG surprise it fly better than my Trex.

It is not like night and day but MT has some characteristics in flight that are far better than Trex.

For exemple stability, my MT is more stable in rear flight, inverted, also in the simple FFF flight expecially in the 8 figure it doesn't need any pitch recovery because it doesn't goes down like trex.

I don't know if i say it in the right way, but a trex flyer must try also a MT to understand the differences.

MT smetimes has tracking and gummy pitch problems but can be fix quickly upgrading only to metal upper and lower mixing lever. The rest are ok as stock.

This are my .02
