I do not seem appropriate to take it apart its fuselage, also because then you could see the improvements and changes in the new model ...................
The spare parts listed on that site that the pictures come from, have the old type of links listed as replacement parts, so based upon that I concluded that this type is being used once again.
Perhaps they are going to make 2 versions of the successor of the Solo Pro, just like with the coax. There is now the Bravo III which has a Hughes 500 fuse, and the Draco, which has the "fantasy" ultra light fuselage for maximum performance and durability. I can imagine they are doing the same for the single rotor, and in that case we can expect a "high performance" version which will be much lighter again. 33 grams is really heavy, adding over 4 grams to stock weight of a Solo Pro. That's like having 2 batteries strapped to it instead of one, and we know that won't make it fly better... ;-)
