I am wondering what the exact differences are between the 550 & the 600 T-Rex besides the boom?
I have a 550 & I'm wondering if I should convert it to 600? What will I need to add?

550 to 600 conversion
tail boom, struts, torque tube, push rod, bigger tail blades are at your own discretion on my 550 i use 96mm and they fit just fine

550 conversion
Thank you guys for your responses,
I'm very tempted to convert it to 600.
I'm wondering if the will be any center of gravity issues?
Also will it fly nice with 600mm main blades after stretching it?

What I am wondering is why would you want to stretch it out. The 550 is a great flyer and does well with a 6s. I personally didn't care for the 600 as a 6s and upgraded to 8s. I am much happier now.

550 conversion
@solomanbandit,
Your probably right the battery issue was also on my mind, I might just leave it as is.
I was thinking bigger blades more stability..But the difference is probably little to none.
Thanks
