Plexiglass FBL mount for old Align 450 body

Couldn't find an easy way to mount the AR7200BX with a good top view access so I made a plexiglass mounting platform. It's made with some scrap plexiglass and cut with a table saw. The channels I cut is lined with soft rubber padding to lesson vibration. Then I used a couple plastic straps to attached it the body.

Actually, it's quite light but solid. Just config'd the FBL tonight. Will put some blades on tomorrow and spin it up. Will report how it flies.

She flew very nicely.....I guess like my other 450s with the AR7200BX. At least it doesn't look like a hack job. Now, I gotta work on the birds nest connected to the FBL!

AR 7200 BX is a good unit. my friend has Gaui X-3/ X-4 with them installed. Mega flights on them and good to go. Some claim clone units work fine and hey good for them. What ever they say and do best to clonies. Ar 7200 BX/ Ikon units will do fine for me.

That's a really nice design for the FBL tray.
