Okay, I heard about this upgrade, so I'm waiting to see what I get for Christmas, then will probably buy this later(too late now anyway. regular ground shipping will take weeks cuz of the E-bay christmas croudand the rest of the on-line stores..lol), BUT I've seen 3 different versions.

Rick's has the ACEPV0104 with the tapered metal posts and regular self-tapping screws that come with the stock plastic posts. It's about 30 bucks.

HeliProz has the same part #(PV0104) but it says that it comes with hex bolts(which I'd prefer), and it shows a different type of metal post, which is the same shape as the stock ones. It's about 20 bucks.

Heliproz also has a "better buy" on the MVP version, which looks like the same thing at Rick's, for $15, But in the description it says that it has the "correct number of parts."

I want to get the one with Hex bolts, but what's the deal here with the others?

I use the Heli-Proz $15 set. Works great.

This is not rocket science, it's just nuts and bolts. Use blue locktight on the threads.

The metal frame posts really tighten the feel of the frame, and no more loose screws or stripped plastic posts.

Not sure which ones I have but the posts are tapered and the screws are silver with tighter threads. Threadlock the things in and they don't slacken off in flight. The hex ones sounds good but I think it's more personal preference. The metal post are a good upgrade if you've every had to strip your frame down to replace bearings and things then you'll no doubt have stripped a few post, specially if you ca the screws in and i've managed to strip a couple posts when putting the things together from new. The kit cost me £10 which I think is about $15 so I'd like to know what extra you get for the $30 kit
