KDE DIRECT TREX 700 SERIES PERFORMANCE TAIL CONTROL V2
The new KDE Direct TREX 700 Series Performance Tail Control V2 is now available; including the internal Bearing Holder Collar and updated geometry for easier installation and compatibility with the ALIGN TREX 700E V1 and V2 version helicopters. Based on customer feedback and the highly-detailed Review Videos by Finless Bob of the popular HeliFreak.com forum, the Engineers at KDE Direct went back to work to further improve the design and simplify the installation for our customers. Thank you for the feedback and the new design provides even further improved tail precision and authority. Make sure to check out the updated Installation Diagram (.pdf) for full details.

Update: the “V2″ design now includes the internal Bearing Holder Collar, so disassembly of the stock ALIGN Bearing Holder is not required for easier installation.
Note: the KDE Direct TREX 700 Series Performance Tail Control V2 assembly is the ultimate, slop-free control system available on the market to provide precise tail control and authority. Add the KDE Direct TREX 550/600/700 Series Performance Tail Upgrade V2 to the system and you now have a complete, dual-radial ball bearing supported assembly throughout for the ultimate flight characteristics. With the mechanics of the dual-fork supported tail slider, there is no worry of abnormal wear or torque loads on the tail shaft slider for a continuously smooth, failure-free operation even under the hardest and most extreme flying conditions.
Important: due to the precision CNC-machining of each component, correct installation is key for proper, bind-free operation. Please pay attention to the Installation Instructions and installation video, take your time during the install, and make sure to apply medium-strength Loctite (Blue 243 or equivalent) to all screws during assembly. Once fully-installed, a significant reduction in slop throughout the tail mechanics will be clearly evident on the bench and in actual flight.
