Trex 700 boom shortening is needed, so the torque tube will fit as supposed.
Upgrade is quite easy all you need is dremel tool and driling machine to drill a hole that secures tail section not to slide off or turn on boom.

Articles needed for stretching upgrade:
ALIGN 700 Boom article: HN7047
ALIGN Torq Tube article: HN7056T
ALIGN Torq Tube Bearing holder set article: H60124T

Front of the boom only needs opening to be extended to 26mm, that part goes into tail boom case.

On the end of the trex 700 boom cuting is needed to be performed by 40mm away from the end of the boom.

What is left to be done is a hole so the tail section can be screwed into place. Since I have decided I will be using tail rotor on the left side of the heli (as real Jet Ranger does) I made the hole on the right side, how far depends on how tail section sits on the boom not to press Torque tube between both gears in front tail boom case and tail mechanics at the back of heli. You need to test that your selves and decide by trying.

Next upgrade I have decided to make when looking at the Flasher/Chaos parts was complete tail mechanics section.

Articles for tail section upgrade used:

-H60250T 600ESP Metal Tail Pich assembly/black
-HN6103BT V2 Metal Tail Rotor holder/Silver
-H60077AT Metail Tail Pich Assembly
-H60G003XXT Torque Tube Rear Drive Gear Set
-AT550/600/700-PTU-V2 KDE DIRECT ALIGN TREX 550/600/700 series Performance Tail upgrade V2

This concludes tail section and its mechanical upgrades, next will be main rotor upgrades ,...
