Yeah.. That looks great.

My nano fuse didn't last 24 hours. Boom strikes and then a mid-air..

I used heat to form a blister instead of removing material for push rod clearance..

Glad you guys like the Desert Bravo. I almost went with olive drab, but I figured I would NEVER see it. I'm OK now as long as I don't take it to the Sahara.

I guess a paddle mod might be required to eliminate flybar strikes on the Nano fuselage.

Rerouted my battery wires to the canopy instead of behind and flipped the 25c battery around so its all up inside the canopy along with the LED light controller.. Sliced up a white drinking straw to cover the boom strobe light wires. This pic does not really depict how cool the lights are. Wish I could find more..

What scale are these if I were to look for stickers?

All I need now is a replica engine to cover the gear etc..

Oooh, I like! I'm not a huge fan of removing material from an otherwise good looking canopy. I might need to invest in one of those little woodworking irons or whatever they're called. What kind of tool did you use?

I just used a steel rod and heated with a lighter. Wipe off the soot and start working it rolling back and forth. Don't get it to hot or the body will stick. when you have it where you want slide the rod so it cools the blister.

WOW! What an improvement over my V911 Hughes 300s. I had thought about picking up some colored straws, but I didn't think the look was worth the extra weight. Boy, was I wrong!
