I did a search and couldn't find anything.
Has anyone used the Micro Heli metal tail assembly that Heli Direct sells. Also do you think the 600 even needs a metal tail upgrade.
seems to be a lot of slop in the stock plastic tail.

Microheli vs Kasama (Tail grips)
The Microheli tail grips sold by Helidirect.com are owned by a local member and the word I got from him is that with the Microheli tail grips he experience a lot of tail drift both ways and had to constantly trim the tail out to center! Its not worth the chance imo, just go with the proven "and beautiful I might ad" Kasama tail grips, they are proven components, durable and imo well worth there cost, everyone knows that Kasama makes premium billet components and there customer service is top notch....Jim

Microheli is known to use a softer aluminum.

metal tail
Be aware that when you install the metal tail you will need to add weight to the nose. I was surprised at the amount of weight I had to use.

Go to....
Go to a CF boom when you get metal tail grips, this is my plan of attack on my next 600N. Every little bit of weight saved helps.

Only problem I found with the stock setup is they need grease and the hub bends easy.
