That's a good lookin' fuse. Do you have the weight info?

I am brandy new to this whole thing, but I am sure that loading up a lot of gear on these micros is not gonna end well for anyone, so I am keeping my eye out for the lightest stuff I can find (chuckle)...

Cool!

No, I had not taken notice of that earlier -- pretty cool setup!

Still running it that way?

My idea for my 'fleet' of E-flites from mCX2 through B400 is to find well-fitting, and different livery for each of them, eventually.

Got the CP Pro2 outfitted with the off the shelf E-Flite UH-1 item, so that was a breeze.

I'm hoping darthdk has something in the hopper for my B400...

So getting a little something for the 120Sr would be cool. I had been thinking along the lines of a Hughes 300... light, easy, open boom...

And I've seen some neat stuff for the mCX2 size from MIA....

Did nobody make a fuse mod on their 120 SR?
I saw a lot of people did it to their HoneyBee FP V2 to protect the receiver unit in case you forget to cut the throttle when you crash, but I have yet to see anyone do it to their 120SR? Is it not necessary for this heli?

no its not.... I have not tried it on my 120sr,, but I know for sure on the MSR and mCPX they have overload protection so if the blades stop the motor shuts down.... I assume from the lack of burnt out 5-in-1's this heli has it too, especially since the MSR, which came before it, and the mCPX, which came after it, both have it...

In all fairness I found the vid on Utube but it was of those captain obvious things. I just bought a replacement canopy and plan to use the case canopy to rig up the lights in.....

Well well ...
In a quite nice strike of luck.. today while i was at the LHS looking for fiberglass (wich nobody has in like 300km away) look what i found :



Yeap.. the very same fuselage i was thinking in buying some time to adapt to the Blade 120SR.. i will not adapt it now.. first i want to get the hand on this bird.. but so far things look promising:



Lenght is really similar.. i think that to adapt this i will have to use the method of loosing the tail boom and embeb directly the tail motor in the fuselaje right?
This fuse only looks like a couple cm longer anyway.. its almost a perfect fit..

For those who were asking how much this fuse weights:



Looks fine right?

Also weighted the 120SR with the low budget training gear without battery:



More usefull if i knew how the 120SR weights empty without batt.. i weighted the 120 without both gears (training and standard) and it came at 87g .. that means that both gears are 30g wich is more than the Huey fuselage weights

Also the Huey fuseleage comes with a couple leds with cables included... dont know if they blink by themselves or controled by the Lama A300 board.. but could be usefull for later

PD: I posted all this by mistake in the main 120SR thread.. now i copy the same post here where it belongs as i posted it there.. sorry for being so lazy
