Easy to upgrade with 450 CLONE heads and tailsGood news. Well first, not so good, I back-flipped my AXE 400 3D into the snow inverted. As we all know, TH has all the parts. The bird does fly well, rolls, flips and is a bargain when purchased RTF on sale. Now for the good part, I had a big box of TREX 450 parts and the tailbooms, drive gears,main shafts, feathering spindles, mixers, blade grips are all the same size as the AXE 400 3D. The only thing you have to watch out for is the swash. Unlike the TREX, the AXE 400 3D swash is a single ball forward, and the two 120 degree balls backside with an anti rotation guide pin in between. So mine will be sporting lots of metal upgrades, mixers,cages,head block. That answers the question I posed earlier. You can buy a clone TREX 450 mainrotor and tailrotor and upgrade your AXE 400. If you go to the longer SE V2 tailboom you will need the longer belt. Also the Align booms only have one slot at the front of the boom, so you can either grind off the alignment nub in one of the frame halves or dremel an opposing slot in the boom, very easy and fast to do. So you can go to TH for original parts, Xheli for clone parts, and the best place for all FLAVORS of TREX 450 parts is http://WWW.TECH-MP.COM.
