Default T Rex 500 clone?

Can anyone recommend a cheap t rex 500 clone and would I be able to use HS 56 MG servos (recent upgrade for my 450) in one of these?

I have the Hobby King version of the 500 T-rex. I've had it for about 1 year and over 100 flights. So far so good. The HS-56 is to small to use for this heli. The smallest Align recommends is the HS-85. I have mine outfitted with HS-225MG's. I am a sport pilot. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that. I was rather hoping to transfer over as much as possible to keep costs down but its a bigger bird so its not really such as surprise.
