EP Concept - Bell 222 body

Just finished a full install of the Darth Bell 222 onto my newly re-build Ep concept. Body fits perfectly and requires no mods. This first picture is the body mount that I made.

This is a bottom view of the mount. It is screwed to the bottom of the heli using the stock screws. Mount is made from 1/16 lite ply.

My favorite pic. Too bad it came out slightly blurry.

You don't need to remove the nose of the body to get at the battery. There is enough room on the bottom to install and remove the pack. The pack also sits high enough that it is almost completely hidden in the fuse.

Darth's Website,...

Here's Darth's website, where he advertizes the bodies he has made for the LMH Corona. There are a limited number that will fit other heli's without problems, so check here on the EZone for those that have tried others out. The Bell 222 is a great example. These bodies are nice and lightweight, and can be painted with nearly any model paints.

Great looking Heli,....

Thanx guy's.
The only thing I would advise is to keep the upper deck removable and cut it down the backside so you can take it off without removing the rotorhead. This is due to the fact that the CP rod conections on the swash are difficult to install and remove when removing/installing the rotorhead. It can be done with the upper deck on but it's difficult.
