Not without some mods...I believe the swashplate anti-rotation peg is on the front servo ball on the trex type heads and is seperate , and on the opposite side on the blade 400..you may be able to get it to work if you swap out the swashplate from the blade 400...

Yup, you will have to use the Blade swash, but you should be able to get the heads to work. You will obviously have to re-do pushrods etc., but with a little tinkering, it WILL work

Just out of curiosity. Why would you do that? I have 2 Blade 400's and have not considered going with trex parts on it. The metal B400 parts make the heli as good as it can be I think. Besides the parts that are made for it are widely available and cheap. Still sounds like a fun experiment though.
