Nice,
Just needs some nice landing gear and some carbon fiber fins to complete the package.

sounds cool,but will the gyro work ok,the cb100 has a tricky time with tail wag some times , what would a 3 axis gyro do with a wobley main shaft ?it would twitch all the servos and the tail motor something to think about.very nice if it all works well though.

After all of this, it STILL wants to lean to the right!! Got any idea on the price yet? Jonathan, you might as well put your package together for the heli with a decent tail motor.

For battery wire I use this

22awg is perfect for power wires (esc as well) on these palm helis. Nice quality too for a bargain.

Thanks Amp - I order'em a few 350's and few 450's - will post my findings if I don't burn down the house soldering them up.

Yep. Better if you can use some of that heat tape over the tabs (the brown/yellow stuff). But yeah just single direction fibre tape.

Oh btw the 450 cells won't fit the stock tray...too wide. 400's will, almost identical size to the Oversky 400's but 1g lighter with suprisingly similar performance. (tested in 4g3)

Why not just warm up the bat tray and stretch it ?

I have actually done that and the plastic becomes really brittle. Only good for one crash and then its done.

What we really need is a CB100 Wiki. I am helping one of our cb100 heli club members with his chopter and it spins left like crazy. I forgot what to check for when that happens? Thanks in advance.

Hi Wolfpack Leadr,
It might have a problem at the tail rotor. Maybe the tailrotor is slipping on the shaft and cant hold the heli straight.
Does it start fine on the ground and then starts to spin left after take off?
