By far my favorite BVM scheme period!!

I had an original Bandit with that same "Fly Navy" scheme that I sold to Dan Avilla. Now he has it on an Electra so obviously I will need to get one at some point

Agreed. That IS the best bvm scheme to date. Glad to see they are putting it on multiple airframes.

We power them with a 2700mah 2 cell Thunder Power rx pack.
The pack has dual leads. One lead is 16ga wire that runs to the regulator. One lead is 22ga servo connector that runs to the programming box.The E Blues are powered directly from the rx pack. The gear door servos (mc35's) are powered through the rx.

I installed the duro struts on my electra with mechanical gear. The struts i bought were slightly longer and then i shortened them. i think the nose gear was a drop in fit.

They look great on your electra. Did you trim the nose strut? Or is it installed as is? Gives the electra more of a bandit look.

These are the Fury struts on the Air Blue gear, with brakes and V-Lite wheels. You will need to cut 3/8" off the mains and the nose strut fits as-is. If you go this route, cut the nose door opening 1/8" longer (in the front) than marked to leave room for the fact the nose gear is anged 5 degrees forward. It fits using the standard cut out but the nose strut does press against the hinge, a 1/8" larger opening (length) would be perfect... ;-)
