Default T-Rex Head on Blade 400 question

I found a T-Tex CNC Head on x-heli.com for 89.00. it is very good Quality. I would like to know what parts I can use aside from the swash plate on the Blade 400.

The new head uses larger size ball links so I think that i cannot use the washout base either unless someone has any Ideas. (beside buying a T-Rex 450)

IDK, but here's a blurb about CNC stuff from the bible

METAL HEAD!
Copter/X CNC parts... $100 for the head and tail.
Easy as pie to install. Just slide it on. (Skunkymagoo)
Some links.

Skunky also says... (about how to install) Remove the copterx swash and put the copterx balls on the inside of the stock swash. Install the stock swash on the head. Slide it on and slide in the jesus bolt. Make sure you go over everything with loctite.

+1 on the swash mix.

But the $90 "high quality" head you see can be had for much cheaper.

I believe it is on ebay for even CHEAPER, Mon_t?

Yeah, I put up the link, I don't have it anymore.
I don't know if it's the same, but looks like it minus the branding on the head.
But it might be a softer alloy, any reports from guys using it yet?

If you're in the US I'd get it from Heli Bros, at least you get customer service from them
any problems from an Ebay store, forget it!

Here's the thread where Mon_T found the ebay head/tail:

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=87288

I just got this ebay one in the mail. Looks the same since it's not branded either. Quality of metal? I won't know until I crash! I'm pretty sure i'll find out. <grin>

I had been checking many sites for this head and most of them were selling fro 150 and up and all the sites were out of stock. So when I found it on X-heli for 89.00 it seemed like the bets price I found. Although I didnt try Heli-Bros.

Also Thank you for the Ideas on how to fit the Head.
