I had this canopy kicking around from a previous project that it didn't fit, so I spent a few minutes fitting it the F45. I find yellow much easier to see at a distance so I thought, what the heck. Of course the fins would need to be color matched. It's a 450 size so a bit big but I think looks .

Do you like it or hate?

Hi all today tried a little flight with a 5mega pixel camera phone attached under the heli between the skids but the wind had kicked up a little so I had a little jittery flight. Forgot also to enable audio on the mobilephone so the vid come out noise less There are only stones and rubble and some ugly bushes in the video clip coz I went to an isolated as possible place near the sea hehe so I wouldn't make a show of myself if I had a crash or similar accident Now I have just done also the servo arm mod as Samuelson suggested that is I swapped the Aile servo arm with the Elev arm and moved the link into the next hole so it has about 20% more throw for forward and backward flight!

Haven't tried it yet Whizgig coz this morning I flew in 16kph wind and it has now increased to over 20kph and I'm not risking a crash The heli felt very very stable this morning even though it was windy but I am attributing that to the increased front weight due to the Nokia phone!! I hadn't done the Elev servo mod yet

It looks good. How is the weight?
And I agree on the color. That's why I ordered red to it would be more visable.
I have painted all my canopies red so I can see them at high altitude.

Markkona you can get an other servo arm here

http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm...olesalers.html

you can talk ith the seller to chose a cheaper shipping, such as i did,

I suggest you to order other spare parts like a motor (you will need a new one after some flights) but its better if you buy a better motor than the stock.

you also you buy this:

http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm...olesalers.html

you can mod that part with a dremel to could use a 12 T pinion in your motors, and that is a really good mod.

Yep same here just asked Wayne if he could make it a red one before I orderd the MJX-F45 and he was fine with it and when I orderd it I just noted to him on the order for him to send a red one and he did cos I don't like the green one.
