Default 550 conversion kit in stock in US?

Where can I find it in stock in the US? I've been looking for a while now, any help is appreciated, thanks.

It is quite easy to do it your self..

You can trim the boom and trim the tt shaft and drill a new hole for the screw.

How much am I cutting off of the boom and tt? I figured it wasn't that hard but I was trying to avoid doing it myself because I just don't trust myself with it.

Depending on your flying you can just fly the stock boom with 6s/550mm blades. I did and it was fine. Now if you are into hard 3D and lots of piro moves you will want to shorten the boom.

just look at the fusion 50 boom length and the outrage 550 boom length (on heli direct specs) and the difference is what you cut off.. I have never done it as I fly with the longer boom fine.

OK, thanks fellas. I'll give it a shot. I can always buy another one if I mess it up.

I cut 85mm out of my torque tube and boom.

If you do not mind the color - this one is actually in stock. I tried it out and also the standard tail boom length worked too with 550 mm blades the shorter tail seems more locked in to me.
