Default 330x frame same as 450x?

Hi,
I usually order my spares from amain.
I noticed that they've discontinued blade 450x frame sets : BLH1639

However I believe the blade 330x frame is the same : blh4005 (which they have in stock)

Can someone confirm the 2 are the same?

Thanks in advance

I got it confirmed by someone at amain (they're customer service/product knowledge and prices/shipping are great and thanks again to them)

The 2 parts are the same.
blh4005=BLH1639

There is a set on sale on eBay for $19.99 with free shipping. See the link below.

Good news they are the same. I intend to keep my 450 x forever.

My 450x is my beater and I do enjoy flying it. All the electronics are now non-stock (apart from servos).

Parts and crash costs significantly less than my oxy4 max (still saving to repair my re-kit level Oxy )

But rebuilds are a complete PITA
* The tail hold with those screws into the plastic frame is pretty awful
* and when you break a frame and have to rebuild everything is downright miserable for me these days

But as long as I can still get parts I will keep flying it, when everything's running well, it's a fun heli that lets me practice stuff before perfecting on the Oxy

if you brake the frame its a total rebuild, had to buy different screws for the boom to hold properly.

You can "rethread" the plastic holes with a toothpick dabbed in medium CA...run the screw in and let it set for 30 minutes
