Hi all, i wanted to post that i have successfully converted my radikal g20 to an all metal trex 600 main head assembly. this is not really a mod as it bolts right on. I used the standard g20 LT main shaft and all align head parts including swash plate. Works without a problem and the control and reponse is now great. I did this conversion as i was tired of trying to get century parts and also the cost and quality is bad.
Now i need someone to tell me if they have ever converted a g20 to a trex tail boom. The g20 uses a 25mm boom and the trex is 21.5mm. i want to do this to make it easy to put a trex tail box on the end of the boom.

Not sure if you can use the whole tail but I have used the align v2 tailgrips and pitch slider. It's 10x's smoother in my opinion.

align tail parts
i have installed the complete align tail rotor assembly and slider. In order to make the slider work you take the guts of the align and install them in the outter slider casing of the century metal slider unit. the brass bushing from the century is the same diameter of the align so therefore you can convert. the align control arm does not work however so you have to use the century control arm and slider casing with the align guts instaled. works no problem. I want however to convert the tail boom to align and use the align tail box. this is a problem because of the difference in the diameters. I hope someone has done this and can offer suggestions.

Ok. cool, I kept the tailboom and tailbox from century. I have yet to see anyone do the full conversion with the align boom.

good luck on your search.

Sounds like you should have gotten the HWC trex conversion.

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

trex conversion
i thought about that but most everyting i could find indicated the quality to be ok with the century kit. and i believe it is. as i progress in flying styles however and become more demanding i see beter results when using the align main and tail rotor heads and control. i still have far less invested in the g20 with mods than a trex with gas conversion and i am very happy with the performance now.

trex tail slider install
correction of the trex 600 v2 all metal tail pitch control unit. The slider can be used as is no mods. It will slide right on the output shaft and the century stock control arm fits it perfect.

I would like to know why you don't use Century parts?? If they were defective I am sure they would send you new parts to correct the situation....what's the story here?

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them
