i removed the raptor head and washout set , put on the rex washout set and complete head , and she flew straight off , but needed more pitch , so i redrilled the top arms and away she went , thats how i did it any way

I don't see the point. The pitch control arm is the limiting factor when going for more pitch. Is there any real advantage?

I looked at that and the big problem is that you have a very limited pitch range. If you fly AP or scale them the limited pitch range might be ok. A much better solution is a Kasama Raptor or a Kasama Srimok head depending on whether you want an overslung or underslung flybar.

I have even upgraded my Trex 600 with a Kasama Srimok and had it does fly much better. There is really no point in trying to re-engineer and adapt a stock Trex head to a Raptor. Besides I don’t think much of the quality on the Align lead anyway.
