Default parts

I beleive you need the kde head upgrade along with gaui blade grips feathering shaft and dampeners. I want to upgrade to this myself but will probably wait due to the expense of replacing something that is functioning okay so far and I need the money to convert my whiplash to an 800 running the kde motor on 14s.

So the mainshaft doesn't need to be changed out for the dfc one?

Default KDE Support

Gotta love the KDE support. I sent an e-mail early this afternoon to KDE to ask about the head system and received an e-mail approximately an hour ago in response from the owner of KDE. The gaui mainshaft is good to use but I forgot to add the feathering shaft sleeve and the align main grips you need are part no. HN7116.

After talking with Mitch, you do run the stock Gaui X7 shaft and then the ALIGN components for the full setup:

Dampers: H70096, TREX 700DFC Head Damper
Flybarless Grips: HN7116, TREX 700 Newly Main Rotor Holder
Feathering Shaft: HN7025, TREX 700 Feathering Shaft
Feathering Shaft Sleeves: HN7111, TREX 700 Feathering Shaft Sleeve

Everything else is included in the kit and you're good to go.

Not that I'm aware of, but I have seen cases where customers with some polishing compound have taken quick work of the laser-etch engraving.
