I just put the Kasama head that is made for the Mini Titan on a T-Rex that I built. It is amazing compared to the V-1 head that I am used to. It is rock solid and is very responsive.

Copterx 450SE V2 head is very good and cheap. This is my best upgrade.

Tam, dennis and numbers,
Thanks for the help. After seeing your recommendations, I looked into the CopterX and Kasama Heads. The CX head was tempting for the price, but the Kasama really did look like the quality choice. Enough so that I placed an order for it and I'll give a report on it when I get some time with it.
What are you guys running for dampeners?
Thanks again

You will love the Kasama head it is the best head for the T-Rex. You will need the Mini Titan links to make it work because the balls are smaller on the Kasama head. You can use your align swash and links on the swash but everything beyond that needs to be MT links. Also you need to reverse the direction of the swash. Other than that it is a direct replacement and a sweet one at that.

the balls on the Kasama head are smaller but the thread size is the same as the Align 2.5mm so you can take the Align balls and screw's of you're stock head and use them on the kasama...

Thanks for the help Tam, Trad and R38. I ordered the complete head with TT swashplate.

Will this work? Did I screw up by ordering the TT swashplate?
