Your right there, I am a lucky guy to have her...but I am also very greedy and would like to have your skill on the sticks.

Ah yes, one of the 7 deadly human sins... Greed. Then you have wrath, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

Well, careful not to loose her while spending hours a day out flying in order to attain those skills.

These days I believe the 7 deadly sins could be greatly increased in number...and your right, no amount of stick skills could take her place.

So here is my first real decent Khaos on my X7. It's a little all over the place. But I didn't think it was too bad.

Don't know when this wind is going to let up some. But it has been nuts lately.

I received a little cosmetic upgrade for my X7 in the mail today, direct from Gaui. I don't even think the USA distributors don't have this yellow version in stock yet!

Very Nice. I've heard some say these increase drag, but for me the increased visibility makes it really desirable. Does the boom and support rods get replaced by this, or does this go over top? How long did it take to get direct from Gaui?

Well, I actually ordered it on something like the 4th. But they didn't actually ship it until like the 16th for some reason, not sure why. But for the nearly $50 shipping it cost to get it here, I was a little upset. But at least It only took like 3 days to get here once they actually shipped it. They use FedEx which i have used from Hong Kong and other places a lot and it is always fast and reliable. It shipped with tracking and everything.. I'm making an assumption that they may only ship once or twice a month or something like that. But I really don't know.

The cover replaces the support rods. But honestly, this scares me a little. I'm a 3D pilot so I'm not worried about drag as much as I am tail boom fatigue and failure at the frame clamps. I've crashed this heli a couple of times now because of that, and now I try to replace the aluminum boom every 100 or 150 flights, just to be safe. So with this new boom cover providing support instead of the rods. I assume there will be a little less support for elevator tic tocs and things like that. So i will probably make sure to replace it at least every 100 flights. I don't know if it will be necessary or not. But hell... What does an aluminum boom cost? About $6 or so? big deal.

I really like the yellow they used on this boom cover, it is a lot more like the neon yellow you see on goblins than the pictures show. It has some UV reactive paint, so my black light makes it glow green. Which means in the sun it should glow nice and bright yellow. However the part i DO NOT like is how the entire top of the boom is red with a faded black boarder. I will be covering that section with yellow vinyl or painting over it or something. Paint sounds like the best plan. But I really don't want to spend the time to do that properly and then clear coat it too. Oh well. I guess I'll see what happens... If i want to paint it neon yellow I'll have to sand it down some, paint it white and give it a few days to dry. Then paint over the white with a neon UV reactive yellow paint. It could take a week or more to clear coat and everything... I'm lazy. So the non-matching vinyl will probably be how i go... then maybe I'll just put some neon yellow paint over that to make it glow and match a little better.

Well, at any rate I have a few days before my new Brushless servos arrive to decide what to do.
