Default Align 500 4 blade head swash driver arms

I bent one of the swash driver arms on an align 500 4 blade head, does anyone know if the 500 pro 2 blade arms will work, it's the closest I've found in looks. I dont seem to see any parts available for the 4 blade head. The plastic part is still good if I need to swap that out to keep the phasing correct.

How in the world did you guys pull of that trick without destroying the head?

I tipped over and it popped the link off, then the link gets snagged and bends the arm (also broke the servo arm and scrapped the blade tips) but no other damage. It's a club members heli, if it was mine I'd just buy the whole head for spare parts but I'd like to just fix it if I can.

H50180 is the part I'm looking at, I feel like it would have to work, just hate to throw away 20 on top of the 85 for the whole head if they dont.

Check the feathering shafts as well. From what I have seen with ot have seen with other guys, they're fairly soft. I haven't had any incidents of ground induced unscheduled maintenance with mine, but I've seen a few bent by other guys in what looked like mild tip overs and blade strikes.

I am flying with a friend on the weekend who has that head I will compare it to my PRO head and see.
I have had a look at the pictures and they look very similar.
