Here is what I did to strech my 550.

Trex 600 boom and torque tube.
Trex 600 pro front drive gear (can't remember tooth count).
105 tail blades
Align 700 motor (I ran 12 cell).
80 amp kontronik esc.
115 tooth Trex 700 main gear.
12 tooth Pinion (cant remember the name/make. I can pm you if necessary).
600 size main blades.
Align 700 size virtical stabilizer.

Note: you will need spacers between the landing strut's and the bottom plate to give the 700 size verticle stabilizer clearance. Also, if you need the exact "front tail drive" gear size and type of pinion for the 700 motor, just send a pm and I will double check for you.

Hope I didn't forget anything.

It is already done.

Same length as a 600, use standard 600 boom, longer blades than the standard 550. (Only the RH55E06XW or RH55E07XW kits)

I just used a 600 boom, torque tube, control rod and boom supports to stretch my TRex 550s. I still run 556 blades but the extra boom length lets me run 96mm tail blades for better tail authority when running lower headspeeds.
