Yeah I was looking at pics earlier trying to figure out if the skids would work on the Innovator and I also noticed that the rear portion is raised. I'm guessing it probably wouldn't work very well. Oh well, it was a nice thought.

Flew my Walkera 4G3 BL outside and that was fun too and had the Quark out relly high up there. I need to get some cameras to put on these helis that would be relly cool to get some video way high up in the sky.
Cheers, JohnW.
Did someone say VIDEO. here ya go. Nice quality too. It is a vid camera on the MD530 Red and white. Did not even know they made a white & Red body

Glad to hear you're enjoying the Innovators so much, John. Which version do you enjoy the most?

I like the EXP a little better. More power higher headspeed....
Still just as stable as the MD530.
I have a second EXP coming in Tuesdays order. I will be Putting the Fiberglass MD530 Fuse on it with CF Blades.
They are both very sweet machines. Great Peformance and Quality for the Price.
Thanks, JohnW

I chose the EXP because of the additional power and i think it looks cooler. How much flight time do you typically get on the EXP? Any idea when you're getting the higher capacity batteries in?

Just wondered if anyone had replaced the foam blades on the MD530 with wooden blades and raised the head speed. If so, how much difference did it make?

They are stiffer-you will have more precise control and coupled with the blue head dampers should be a nice combo.

John,
I received my wooden blades today, thank you. I was just wondering if they need covering or use them as is.
Thanks, talk to you soon.
