I have a JR forza 450 which has had a minor impact with the ground.
The main part that is damaged is the main drive gear. Which Is currently unavailable.

So, My Question. I'm considering purchasing a Align 450 or a clone without equipment and transferring the components from the Forza.

What do you think are the chances of most of the items transferring to the Align And working.

Everything will work as far as electronics is concern.

But start the FBL Setup from 1

Yes everything will work but the HS will be lower with the Forza 3500kv motor (assuming it's the older 3s model?) and the stock Align gearing. No big deal, the HS was insane on the Forza and could hit 4000 if you weren't careful! The Forza motor in the Trex will hit around 3500 at 100% throttle so still plenty and will be more efficient/longer flight times.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Ah! I've just remembered the Forza motor uses a 3mm output shaft for their oneway pinion! Align pinions are 3.5mm!!

You may need to get the Align motor to go with it although it might already come in a bare bones kit?

It might be worth getting anyway if your looking for more flight time as the Align motor is 3200kv vs. 3500kv on the Forza.
