Carbon Fiber Upper Frames for V400D02

This is a much needed upgrade for this delicate beginners cp heli. I got the sheet of 2mm think carbon fiber from rcfoam.com. I did this project over 3 days, but total time spent measuring, drilling, cutting, and fileing was only about one hour.

Good find Biggie,

I hate the tiny phillips screw heads, that if you dont have the right size driver tip, they get eaten away to easily.
