The airframe as I said is a modified T450 clone with a delrin cnc cut main gear, Scorpion HK-2221-10 (3000Kv) motor ( thanks to SidewaysLS4 ) , a Turnigy dlux 55A ESC , highly modified CopterX ridgid 4-bladed head , Carbon Hobby 425mm main blades , cut down (80mm) mCPX main blades on the tail , HD-1810MG servos ( cyclic ) , and HD-3688HB (tail) , and a Tarot ZYX FBL unit.

She runs a HS of 1540 with my Blade 400 tail speed up mod which give me a 1:5 tail ratio , this gives her plenty of tail authority along with the cut down 80mm mCPX mains on the tail.

Her AUW with two 4000mah 3s packs on board ( for correct CG only , it runs on 1 pack at a time ) is right at 5.75 lbs and she flies for 8:30 - 9:15 minutes per pack and like a dream too.

Enjoy the pics and feel free to comment or ask any questions you might have about it.
How do you like those blades? I have a set home sitting on the bench that I never tried on my heli's.
