Your local hobby shop is the best place for bodies, unless you want to change to pod and boom style. Then, an after market place like Boomtown.com could help you. Lipo batteries do not tolerate being discharged too far. There's no good way to get them back for long.

A picture is worth 1000 words: http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/BoomT...n_p/bth021.htm

It doesn't look as nice, but it's more functional.

As long as you are there, an extended inner shaft and pivoting blade holders will do wonders for avoiding broken blades. I'm going to send you here for any other help you may need. Go to the end of the thread and ask any questions you may have. There isn't a lot of interest in coax helis any more, so this thread is usually off topic, but don't let that bother you . They are glad to help.
