Anyone done it?

I have recently converted to FBL, but would like to stretch this 550 to a 600.

If anyone has done it, or knows what parts would be required (tail boom, belt, etc.) I would greatly appreciate knowing the part numbers.

Also, any motor/gearing recommendations would be appreciated as well.

Thank you all in advance.

JR have a tail belt that will give you
around 30mm more length in the tail.

Part number is JRP960217.

Someone locally makes carbon fibre tail
booms that we cut to length and machine
the holes and slots into so I can't help
you with a commercially available tail boom.

I don't see any reason can't use Caliber 5 or 6 tail boom and parts to swing 600mm blades?

I've used the JR long belt and a Century Raven/Hawk/Falcon boom to stretch a Cal 5 once but it comes out really long. Enough to swing 620mm blades. You have to re-machine the slots and drill tail case mounting holes. Kinda of a pain.
