Default switching over --maybe--

so if i have the dx7, hs65hb servos, ar7000RX, 401 tail, s9257 tail servo, 3s 2200 lypos, it should be an easy transition to a HDX450SE V3?

how easy it it to adjust servo horns?
how do the aluminum parts hold up after crashes. just the normal stuff? i assume parts availability is not an issue?

I have the 450.. The CNC is not an issue at all it's all 7075 aluminum. I've NEVER bent, broke or stripped one CNC piece on this frame, let alone scratched it.

It's totally worth it, an amazing heli to say the least.

Parts aren't hard to find, lots of 3DX/HDX suppliers.

Hi Neil, My Sonix 450 is the U.K. name for the HDX450SE V3, I haven't had it long but can tell you that compared to the Blade 400, stability is absolutely awesome, I couldn't quite believe it the first time I took off - so if that's what you're looking for I'd say go for it. I do really like my Blade but you realise the difference in quality compared to the HDX when you open the box
