I hope Augusta body will come tomorrow or Tuesday. I still need to find a good paint for it. I like acrylic paint as it easy to wash and local craft store is full of any color I want for 50 cents a bottle
. I even found a clear gloss coat
For now I have finished the landing gear part. It's mounted on the heli the way it's easy to fine addjust for moving forward and back.
The weight now (with everyting including battery) without body is 554 gram. Cool, as now it is 16 grams lighter than the one with orginal motor. What I added by retracts I lost on the brushless motor. I hope the whole body (with paint and mount) will be less than 16 grams. I will be good to go.
Here is the picture of Shoun with retracts. They are working very cool. Notice two LEDs in front of the nose wheel (landing lights) and one LED under the horizontal fin (strobe). All works like charm
