Default trex600efl after market main rotor housing

The main rotor housing on the head keeps developing a lot of slop. This is a poor design by align just having one 3mm bolt holding the head . It works fine on the smaller machines 450.500,550, but the 600efl on a 12cell setup takes a lot of stress. All the new design on other manufacturers have two additional bottom bolt pinching the main shaft.
Any one knows of an aftermarket housing i can use?
Thanks
Luis

I've heard very good things about the KDE stuff. Personally I run their motors and have a few bits of theirs in my 600 and 450.

Rotor head wise though went I went from FB to FBL on the 600PRO I went with the Trac-X/Compass 6HV head(this time from Nankin Hobby. I think experience has it too now). Center locking bolt, and two on the sides. I've never seen one come off a heli without the whole mainshaft going along for the ride.

I used the KDE head for about 10 months on my 550 and 600 pro. Work great to me. Went through numerous crashes. The heads are still true. I just switched to the XT version (for DFC setup) about 2 months ago. Work as good as the non-XT version.

Go for it, you will like it,

Same here, the 6hv out of all the head designs except Bobs impressive design at RcTek are def the way to go. I outfitted mine with the 6hv direct grip head also and it is impressive. Plus on all my 6s and 12s 420mm stretched 450s I abandoned the stock align head entirely for one that had 2 grip bolts and the shaft set bolt to control the head. All the align's, even and especially their new dfc heads sucked.
