I'd stick a Quick UK fan on. The stocks are rarely balanced aren't sufficient. Except for the fan, I would keep it stock for a while so at least you notice an improvement with any future upgrades. Things you'll probably end up getting anyway are heavy duty clutch, metal head block and a decent set of blades. Oh and pin the tail drive shaft, too many horror stories!

The metal fan is critical for your sanity. The plastic ones have a real bad habit of spinning the hub loose. If you fly real hard then the metal boom clamp is needed. The plastic stock one slips and the the supports and the fin are all off kilter when your done flying. Also i found the R30 paddles to be almost as agile as the MA 3d 20gr ones but not pitchy at all. I think it is the leading edge on the MA's that cause the pitch up. Other than the fan the others make minor changes but worth while.

Yip, many of the stock tail units have let go when the end of the torque tubes came loose. They should feel solid but a 2mm pin epoxied in through each end will keep it secure. There's a couple of sites with info on this and some good pics so I'll have a look around.

My swashplate got sloppy after only 3 gallons, but again you could live with the stock one easily for a long time. Other things like the shaft pinning are more for prevention than an upgrade. The rocket city links are a popular move as well.

The fan from Helihut is the TT fan. It works very well and you just spin it on.(unlike the quick fan). At $38 you can't beat the price.

You're welcome, What engine are you using? The push-pull aids the servo keeping the spline alot more rigid.

WIlliam's points about the Rick's O-Ring upgrade and the torque tube bearings are worth noting. When I get the conversion kit I think I'll popping three into the boom as I suffered from a wobbly tube with the R60. Good luck with it!
