Default Blade SR tail conversion kit

I have a Eflite blade sr. Its a spectacular helicopter, handles great, and is an awesome beginner cp helicopter. However, the problem with it's tail and random spinning has gotten me thinking about a tail conversion. I was wondering what good kits are out there and what people think about it? Thanks!

Hobby Zone has a DDVP kit. I have a belt conversion on mine but I'm redoing everything and going with the DDVP instead. Much better IMHO. Less power drag on the motor, easier to setup and fix in case of crash and spare parts should be easier to get.

How do you set that up electronically speaking? I mean, which components do you need, as in gyro, mixer, servo, motor, etc. I have an SR build that is right now waiting for a decision on the tail and the build will be complete. I like the idea of the DDVP but lack the setup knowledge. I also like the belt tail idea for simplicity and reliability but don't know where to get parts. I am not a big fan of tail motors since almost every one I have ever owned has quit at a bad time, and every other option uses main motor power (which is acceptable to me).

Since I really don't type that well, here's a link to the manual. It looks fairly easy to me. The Belt Drive conversion was a lot more involved including drilling holes in the frame. I really didn't like it.
