The order for lipos came in.
Very nice fit and great performance from these little guys.
Turns out I didn't like the look of the Super Skids so I went back to Boomtown Ultra Flex Skids with a proper credit card mod.
There is no way the lipos are coming loose.
In order: the lipos in the heli, bottom views, weights.
These are all 3s.
Rhino and Zippy give the most clearance. The Nano Tech has noticeably more output. The AE brand is still going strong after about 2 years.

Installed a higher performance tail rotor on the Syma for faster fwd speed and turned the tail motor 180 degrees since rotation is the opposite of stock. Also disconnected the front led and added some weight to the inside of the nose for even faster fwd speed.

Installed Super Skids on the Lama. I call it "High Rider Heli". I'll have to come up with a way to tuck in the skids, it looks weird the way it is now. I have some ideas brewing.

Overall, a good day.

Flies very nicely.
A well balanced heli. Hovers in place. No vibration. The yaw is a little touchy but I think that will get better with more flights.
Very nice price and fast shipping.
This will be a nice addition to the Propel micro heli.
Video coming soon.

New, unmodified...so far
Have the throttle set up the way I want and the steering is dialed in.
This will be a fun addition to the E-Revo

Picked up a Sig bubble canopy from the lhs and painted it.
They had the perfect size in stock. I thought I'd have to special order it.
Still have to route all the wires neatly and get the second set of elevons connected, although I think I'll wait to do that.
Then, paint the entire craft. Picked up paint yesterday at 40% off!!!
Eventually, the entire craft will be the color of the canopy.
