Default trex 600 esp crash

Okay here is the scoop, I had a tail servo failure today on my 600esp. Parts are a pain in the ass to find due to the age of the copter. But I had just installed a new motor designed for the 600 6s sytem. Now I'm out the copter and would like to buy a 600 size heli and stay on the 6s setup since the motor has less than 20 flights on it and would. Is there any modern day heli's that are 600 size or very close to 600 size that run on 6s? By the way the motor gear I currently have is:
BeastX controller
http://www.beastx.com/eng/microbeast.php
KDE600XF
http://www.kdedirect.com/collections...e600xf-1100-g3
Castle ICE120 HV everyone knows this speed controller

All upgraded this year I would really like to use this setup on the new heli.The servos will be all new as that was my failure point so new ones are in the works. But I need to find the heli first to know what to buy. Any help with this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance fellas.

David.

What parts are you having trouble finding? There's still a lot of online retailers selling ESP parts. Heck, I have the previous model -- the 600 CF -- and they're still selling parts for it.

Buy a Trex 600E Pro or DFC and swap you choice of your existing electronics over to the new 600.

The newer Trex 600 can be flown quite nicely on 6S.
The BL600MX was the "stock" motor for the 600 Pro and DFC before they started shipping the kit with the BL750MX.
The BL600MX has 2 versions:
1220KV (6S)
510KV (12S)

The CC ICE will run fine on 6S or 12S.
Be aware though, the ICE controllers had a problem and tended to explode in a fireball (really). You may want to contact Castle about an upgrade to the ICE2 or Edge.

RCAerodyne still has Chaos 600 parts (its the best 600 ESP clone out there).

I just built my 600ESP just about from scratch last year. I got 99% of my parts from Ron's Heliproz. If you don't see what you need shoot him an email. He really went above and beyond for my 600 ESP project.

I've got a bunch of parts let me know what you need and I'll check. Even got a frame set.

Also Rons is well known for 70% off clearance sales on the trex stuff. I just snagged 4 Esp frames there dirt cheap a couple months back along with a horde of other parts. But, I regularly shop in the evenings and watch numerous vendors, just waiting for sales like this. I have a dozen or more places that still carry Esp stuff. Be careful on the frame from AC, it is wider. No big deal if you are into a total rekit though. But it forces you to stay with only that shell forever. I get my CF booms from HK at less than $10ea. And OMG upgrade parts. Main shafts there are less than $4. You just have to shop! Then again, the only factory part on any of my 600s seems to be the tail slider bush, modded frames, and skids. lol.....
