Default 450 clones

Looking to replace my aging Trex 450 with a new 450 TT pro setup. I've been looking at Tarot & EXI. anyone have any opinions on these kits. Don't need the electronics. I have all that on my current 450 ie HiTech HG65MG x3 on cyclic, Align DS 420 tail, Align GP780 Gyro, Align 35x esc & Scorpian motor. Just wondering how fit, finish & compatability with Trex parts when they need to be replaced would be.
Thanks

Check out this page.. I have 8 clones and each one flies awesome.. for less than the cost of 3 genuine align 450s.

http://74.50.85.67/RC/Helis/Helis.html

One kit cost me $10 and has over 500 flights and is going strong..

I recommend the HK450 GT or the HK 450 Pro TT.. both of those kits are around $60 and your electronics will fit perfectly..

They are great helis..

Here is a vid of each..

If you want something to replace your Trex, go with the Tarot. I have had all of these and the EXI/HK/CopterX are all good but fit, finish, bearings, etc are much better on the Tarot. Also, the Tarot (from what I can tell) is 100% compatible with the Trex. Some items on the others are slightly different like in the torque tube and tail shaft (the EXI TT tail shaft does not work in a Trex or Tarot due to the dia of the shaft at the bearings).
