It is hard to find parts here in the U.S. anymore but you can order the blade grips and thrust bearings from here https://www.hd-helicopters.de/catego....htm.......The compass 6hvu pitch slider is also hard to come by because they are not around anymore. It was not a perfect fit because the slider and tail shaft on the 6hvu was larger but what I did was take off the brass slider from the original logo slider and it fit right in to the 6hvu slider to perfection...just epoxied it in and voila perfect match. I had all these parts laying around from previous models I owned but I am sure you could probably fit some goblin 500 blade grips with corresponding thrust bearings and bearings and find a pitch slider that will fit the logo shaft and rig your own tail. A little experimentation worked for me...I even get compliments on my tail...they say it looks better than the small plastic logo tail blade grips. One thing though was that I could not torque down on the blade grip screw to the hub because the grips would get tight.....the hub is a tiny bit short to be able to torque down on it, so I cleaned the bolt up with alcohol and applied red loctite and screwed it in till it stopped with a little torque and it has worked perfectly.....has not come loose at all after 15 flights. I do check them every 3 flights just to make sure but the red loctite is doing it's job. Here are some pics
