Looking at getting a Trex-600N, and wondering if anyone can tell me all the differences between all the different releases that are out right now.... the main question I have can they all be upgraded? and parts interchange? I don't want to get something old and not be able to put decent parts on it.

All the parts interchange, I think the 600LE is the newest and you can find the 600Pro with deep discounts and for the most part the color is the only difference. There is a new tail box and swash but you will get the older parts which will serve you well. Either will be a sweet machine. I think the 600N is the sweet spot in the line up.

Look here

Myoz -- the kit in the link above is a 600 NITRO Pro kit, at $300 it's the kit alone, but at $300 a very good deal on a decent heli. There would be no ESC, as it's not electric.

There are four "upgrades" I'd add to those 600 Nitro Pro kits -- the front mount gyro tray (mounts gyro above the aileron and pitch servos under the canopy), the metal main rotor grips (the plastic ones work, but the metal ones are more substantial and move more freely on the spindle shaft), the black carbon fiber flybar paddles (work great and you don't have to mess with the stickers that cover the paddle holes and come loose after awhile), and the "A" arm elevator control setup. That's the four "upgrades" I've added to mine over the years.

all the differences between all the different releases
There have been way to many releases to cover them all. The basics are nitro, electric, flybar and flybarless.
can they all be upgraded?
I have the first version of the first 600N made. It is now flybarless with a DFC Head and swash. I just flew it yeasterday.
and parts interchange?
Yes and No. For the most part they are, but there a little differences The main shaft in the electric is shorter than the nitro and the headblock is a bit different. i.e. to put the dfc head on my nitro, I had to cut the main shaft down 20mm to get the stock linkages to work and drill a new hole for the main head bolt.
not be able to put decent parts on it.
Align has one of the largest market shares out there. Thus, parts and upgrades are common and easy to find.

Sounds Good
That is something I would like to do also, but I am just learning to fly so I think I need a little more experience before I go to flybarless, how did it cost for the upgrade parts.

With the beastx and all head parts plus a modified main shaft just at $400. Think it will be a good move . I still have FB helis to fly also . Could not afford to convert the whole fleet at once so I am starting with my 600N will see how I like it and go from there .But I do like the way my FBL MCPX,130X and nano fly so I should be pretty happy with itwife says if i'm going to be an addict at least its to a heli
