My son and I are looking at the Aerodyne UH-1N for our next project. We have a Trex 600pro with a FL rotor head. There is a note "* Note, This does not fit the Trex 600 Pro EFL models" Does anyone know for certain what the issue with the pro version would be or what the difference is between models?
Thanks for any help, T

Gravity's a bitch ant it?

I've seen this note before when I was considering a build... Although, I haven't experienced this first hand, I know the newest 600 EFL frames are quite a bit longer than the older ESP version. I had an ESP back in the day and it was a very small design which I'm sure that was a great thing to use on scale builds... The only prob is you can't find them around anymore. Chaos makes a knock off of this but they are hard to get as well.

In my gallery you can see how small the ESP frames were and if you do a search for the EFL, you'll notice the length would cause the issue.

Good luck!

Well the gentlemen I spoke to at Areodyne said as long as I have a torque tube I should be fine. The kit comes with frames to move the mechanics up into the doghouse. Then he went on to say the DFC head wont work because the main shaft is to short. But I have the FL head on my 600 I'll keep serching

Tgalo,

Don't be afraid. What you have should work for the most part. It may not be a simple plug and play like the standard 600 mechanics but worse case scenario will be that once you get into the build, you'll need to order a few older Trex parts to complete the conversion.
