Hello Fellow Fliers,
This is the results of the pass couple of weeks. Still tweaking on her. I am still just a basic flier, Hovering,FFF, figure 8's. Was working on a scale 4 main blade bird but found out the Copter-X 4 blade head would not work with the Heli-Max mechanical setup (FWD mounted Elevator and AFT mount Swashplate Stay). So I guess I'll keep it as is and enjoy her. I have a EXI 450 Pro Belted kit on the way for the scale project.
Here are the vitals:

Heli-Max AXE 400 3D: Frame, Boom, Tail, stock motor
Align RCE-BL35X ESC: love the soft start feature and maintains 6 volts ouput to servos
Align 500: Struts and skids
Futaba S3154 Digital Servos: on cyclics
Align Digital Servo DS420: on tail duty
Great Planes: aluminum servo arms on cyclics
Align 450 Pro V2 FBL head assy with Heli-Max main shaft and Swashplate
Align 3G FBL system working its magic
Fusuno horizonal and vertical fins, tail blades: neon orange adding color to the rear
Hobby Partz fiberglass canopy (S-14): at $9.60 versus $12.99 for original plastic is a no brainer

That's a awesome setup. I have a Axe 400 I would like to change to FBL. Do you have a part number or source for the head assembly.

I am currently working on upgrading the head to Align DFC 450 head.

Cheers!
