About $20.00 with shipping, and you'll have enough to make 2.

I cut the carbon fiber 375mm, that is long enough to acommodate 325mm blades ( I had taken out 2 tails blades with blade hits) ,It's enough to clear 335mm blades is I ever go to them.
The servos are EXI-213 f digital, so far so good. And I know some people don't like them, but I guess I haven't flown enough to tell the diff so far. Guess I'm just cheap 'cause I can buy 3 of them for the price of one Hitech 5055.
I may get some 5055 at a later date, just to do some comparison.

This is the fuselage.

The pro frame will go into the orange MD530 fuselage today. So i will no longer have any V400 frame any more.
I am going to sell all the parts i have left over which includes a almost complete V400 bare bones without the FBL head and main gear. I stripped it out and dont have another. The Bare bones kit has the coco 4ever frame on it along with the RTF-HELI tail boom mount. I will sell it all real cheap. I will post picts of it later today.
Hey Md,
I would be curious to know how that new frame rates compared to your other 450 frame. The reviews I read made it sound like there were a lot of problems with screws and such. But then again there are a lot of people that are not very mechanically inclined either. Under thirty bucks for a frame is pretty good. And with the fbl head that would make it about $40. Our first frame is around $60.00 so I was just woundering if it's worth the $20.00 savings or not. I really like the first purchase. I'm just waiting for some other parts to arrive to finish it off. I put her on my heli-stand yesterday and had a little malfunction with the tail motor not responding at times, so I still need to investigate that. You can PM me with your results if you want, but maybe others are curious also. Clear Prop...

I really like the pro heli,but it was not designed for fuselage use as i found out trying to install it in the MD530. It is just too tall. I had to almost redo the wooden fuselage mount and it is a very tight fit. Mostly because of the battery mount.
I just thought this one would be better for the other fuselage because the battery mount is slightly lower. If i wasn't going to fuselage it then i would of purchased another pro. I don't do 3D just scale fly so the cheaper frame should be more than enough for me. I liked the V400 frame,but it caused alot of vibrations on the fuselages so thats why i went to a more sturdy frame.

Good luck with your investigation. Hopefully, you will be able to single out the bad part just by switching new and old parts around.
