Guys, I'm sorta over my bling days now, but I saw this and thought I'd pass it on:

J Jetski Carbon Fiber Parts

I thought that these skids might be good on our SR 120s:

http://clubheli.com/images/products/2781.jpg

They say this:

Designed by Tattooface (RCGroups) and manufactured by JJetski, these skids not only look awesome, they perform great too. Assembly is required, and some canopy trimming is necessary. Designed for the 4#3B, CB100 and V100D01.
Available in Lowrider, Regular and Large Size

Lowriders are LOW!
Regular size is 7-8mm higher than Walkera landing gear and weigh 3.6 grams
Large size is 12-13mm higher than Walkera landing gear and weigh 3.8 grams

Kit includes;
  • Delrin landing gear
  • CF battery tray
  • Screws
  • (2) Battery holders
The tail fins look cool, too. Let me know if works. I may go back to bling in my post mid-life crisis sure to occur at some point in the near future!

The helis those are designed for are the same size as the mSR - so for the SR120, they are surely TOO small!!

Now that I have all the time I ever wanted, I haven't the budget for both beer AND heli parts!! Best to wait to drain all the batteries BEFORE draining the six-pack! . Saves on parts!!

Just ordered one of these today. Its my first RC purchase in over 2 years. I temporarily left the hobby, and I'm so excited for this!

I'm going to read through this thread the best i can, but 1000 pages is a little intimidating. Any quick tips on flying this thing? Any recommended mods? I have previous 4ch heli experience so not worried about the control.

Thanks!

This heli is really great out of the box, you wont be sorry you go it. For flying, when flying outside, if the wind catches it, it can be tough to get down, unless you know the secret, full forward cyclic and full throttle will bring it down QUICK.... Keep that in mind when trying FFF too.... it likes to dive into the ground unless you are ready for it. Other than that.... just have fun and fly over grass....

I got my 120SR for xmas this year and haven't been able to take it outdoors yet. I flew it in a gym and that was fun but I sooooo cannot wait for spring.

Sweet! Can't wait. theres 2 feet of snow here so probably have to fly it inside for a while. Have a pretty large open room in the house that should be fine.

Non of those CNC "hop up" parts are worth getting? Guessing they would just take away from the durability of everything else, but just checking. Will definitely order a spare pair of blade when I pick it up at the LHS.

I was very surprised at the lift created just by flying into the wind.. and it almost has to be forced down. Its easy to get the thing 50' or higher.. and its also easy to lose perspective at altitude..... but cruising around at altitude is very enjoyable...

and as stated.. it does come down as fast, or faster then it goes up.. I cart-wheeled mine a few times a week or so ago... and it took it all in stride, with only a slight crack in the canopy.. no biggie at all though.. thats what I got for is to teach me.. I might replace the canopy if it gets worse.. but I know I've got some more crashing to do... that all takes place at the park though... I can hover/fly around my back yard all day doing spot/touch-n-go landings..... without having to go anywhere.. backyard crashes aren't near as spectacular as park crashes though, alot of you know what I mean..... ... great fun.. You'll love it.. its so freakin addicting!..
