I have R50SE and two Titans which I fly the most. I did build three similar machines so I could maintain common inventory to keep the downtime low. I have setup the three machines so that any head or tail can be put on any machine and will work just fine. more like a plug & Play. linkages on the heads identical on all three and on the body so the I get identical travel and limits.

I have been doing this for awhile on my T-Rex 450. Unfortunately, or maybe "fortunately" I have never had to go to my backup head as of yet. The last couple crashes I had did in servo gearsets so the head was really a moot point.

It's good to know that I'm not the only backup parts maniac out there.

Well that depends on the level of flying you're doing... I also fly the 450SE and the experience has been different though, four main shafts, one flybar, two feathering shaft and one servo gear on HS65 and couple of blades so far...

In my case with the 50SE and the Titans it had mostly been the case of head, tail and skids and very rarely on the main body which takes most of the cost like servos, engine, receiver, gyro, governor, bat etc... I have been benifited my modifying the three machines so head and tail could be interchanged in the fied. it also makes a cheaper alternative than multiple machines. Hope it helps... :-)
