Default Show off your sweet helis

Hello Folks,
As I promised Brutal E that I am going to create a new thread for our folks to show off their sweet birds so here we go. I started with mine with a condition that you will show of yours So folks get your heli pictures on in

On the left it is my yellow MX400/TRex450 Hybrid (take a closer look you'll see strobe lights and Lopo alarm light on it) and next to it is my Blade CP (check out the blades on my Blade CP - they are mod Trex 315 Fiber blade). (edited to add discription)

Hi UflyIfx,
Welcome to Wattflyer! That is a very nice Blade you have. You have fixed it up nicely. I like the yellow tail fins, and the landing gear looks a lot better than stock. Does the landing gear come with alluminum mounts? It looks like it in the picture..
We are glad to have you here. Please visit often
Jay

Hey thanks Jay, yeah, that setup came with aluminum skids, the mounts are just plastic, I painted them with flat Black Krylon. I slapped on my new Plasti-Blades from JCShobbies.com this morning, but haven't had a chance to try them out yet.

Hey Paul,
Looks a lot like the helicopter in post #1 cept I went under a power line, got a glitch and dorked it right in front of wifes jeep lol. Long story short.. That's why it has an old Trex canopy I had lying around. If it fits fly it! The silver looks great!
Take care,
Jay

lol I appologise, I meant post #3. Is the Dynam 6ch rx working good in the heli? It is amazing how fast a helicopter drops when they glitch, only to come back to life right as it hits lol

I was skeptical of them, but I tested them in my 22E and was impressed! Then I tested them in DUAL brushless ESC setups.... they don't glitch

Tomcat, I have had numerous home versions of the blade at various weights and various motors and up to a pound. Try the replacement motor with the 8 tooth pinion. I use 900 mah and 1320 lipos no prob. Currently separates with eflite E3-3700kv. Still looking for a tail to tame it.
