I will be following this thread as I am attempting to use Oxy parts on my 250.
The issue I am having is the Oxy grips are not a direct swap on the Align tail rotor hub. The Oxy tail shaft is 2.5MM, where the 250 shaft is 2MM.

I have machined a sleeve to fit the hub on the 250, but the diameter of the Oxy hub is larger, screwing up the geometry of the pitch links.

I have been messing with this thing all summer trying to get it to work.

By the way,I am doing this on a shaft drive tail as I want to put this in an Airwolf fuselage. This thing will weigh a crap ton.
Many helis from the 70s to 2000s.
Align,Blade,GMP,Hirobo,Kyosho,Schluter.Flybars cool,FBL too. Currently flying the little ones.
