Here's my T-Rex 450 in an Align MD500 fuse. After months of gathering dust, I took the plunge and mounted the fuse yesterday evening. After the initial shake down I managed four flights before dusk. The MD500 looks so much cooler than the pod and boom.
A couple of photos for now until I can get some video.
Cheers! BH

Thank you also. Yes, the fuselage is from "21th Century Toy" 1:18 scale (plastic material)

Well, here's my T-Rex 450x in her new attire. I hovered it around in the front yard and up and down the street. Turns out the tail boom on the 450x is a little shorter than the 450XL so I had to modify the fuselage slightly to fit. Next time it needs maintenance I'll change out the tail boom and drive belt so that it fits better. I hope to get some video of it in action tomorrow.

Now that's what I'm talkin' about. A fantastic rework hueyhog. Now it looks like an AH-1W Super Cobra is supposed to look. What the heck is Wankera thinking with their paint jobs?????

Yup, they recreate the scale heli with such good detail and then pick a silly toy like paint scheme. I am sure someone in walkera's paint dept suffers from color blindness. By the way, the Q is actually a AH-1J Sea cobra, the precursor to the supercobra - a bit of trivia i learnt from this project.

Ec 135

Here is a picture of my Vario´s EC 135.
It is almost finished, i just have to install some decals and some scaleparts.
The fenestron works, it flies only with one gyro for the tail. no other gyros installed.

It will look even better when you get the South Korean markings applied. Nice heli.

I won't skip a chance to show off my E-Flite Blade CP Pro2 MD500D. Still crash free after many enjoyable flights.
Fuselage assembled and painted by darthdrk ( http://darthdrk.4t.com ). The next one, I will build myself
