I modded my V3 head a lot and the flight performance was greatly improved. I'll show some pics later.
Never existed? Oh, its very real in the original Align 450 FBL head!

Or they set-up the heli better the second time around after they added bling.

I am pretty sure this flight has 5x more in-flight stress then anything a 450 would ever experience. Look at the picture of the head..... Funny how those arms are on with just a thread as well......

This thread discusses how to resolve the engineering limitations of the Align 450 head. You guys are talking 700's? This problem is inherent with the original 450FBL head. 450.
I mention it in my earlier post and pictures. Take a a look if you haven't already.

The $17 DFC solution solves this particular problem with the 450 nicely.
