I thought it might be O.K. because I have this in mind...but I do have a spare set of frames coming. JIC.

It should not damage the aluminium shaft, provide it's a reasonably tight fit.
How much load/strain are you going to be applying?
Worst it can do is rip the crap out of it.

Yep. I should think that the motor & main shaft, being mounted on the same plastic base plate along with the al side plates, would be rigid enough.
If it exhibits too much flex, I can always make up a "curved" external plate.

If you can get the 9116 radio for $9 it would be worth it.

Now, where was that link?
i believe xheli has the tx for the 9116 for 7 to 9 bucks

It would be possible.
Parts list:
Transmitter 7 USD
PCB 15 USD
Connect Buckle Set 2 USD
Swashplate 2 USD
Servo 4 USD
some screws
total ~ 30 USD +10 USD shipping fees

What will you get? An underpowered old design bird with more cons than pros built in.
You'll have to pump more money in it to keep it airborne.
It will not teach you much.
It won't fly good in stock configuration.

I would have sold mine long ago if there weren't very personal reasons to keep them.

Instead spending 40 bucks to mod it - take the 40, sell the rest of your 9100 for 5 or 10 dollars and invest in some learning tools:
http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Ne...f-p-49730.html
or, if you want to do some footage ( or buy additional remote gadgets like rocket launcher, hook/wind, water cannon....)
http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Wl...2-p-59263.html
These quads handle some winds, give any CP this size a run for their money in manoeuvrability, are cheap to keep, hard to destroy, as crashproof as you can imagine.
Great learning tools to step ahead to CP.
And later, if you are confident enough, maybe you will be ready for this:
Blade mCP X Brushless (BL) BNF New (2 min 51 sec)
Blade mCPX BL. With Hamish Scott (4 min 31 sec)

(Sorry Steve, after reading of your BL- plans I ordered one, couldn't resist - this will be my second CP)

The Xheli Tx's are still out of stock.
I'm waiting for my replacement.


I had trouble just seeing that Blade mCP X toy.
Way too small for me.

mike does have a good point unless you just wanna stay with a fp heli and never upgrade to a cp then that would be fine i flew my friends little quad the things surprized the crap out of me fast and stable but i don't know how that is going to get you ready for a 6 chan cp heli cause the quad flies 100 percent different then a cp heli would ever fly i don't know i guess its each's own

You are right and not
It is true for most of the "toy-style" quads that they behave a little different than a CP - esp. with their autolevelling and not being able to fly inverted.
The only quad that behaves quite similar to a CP (without the inverted capability, of course) and is not a madman's big, flying, dangerous, brushless quadruple lawnmower is the MQX (I own one). But it is quite expensive for this size, needs a much better hobby grade TX and adds to ~ 200 USD plus x (depending to TX).

But even the toy-style quads will give you a decent, fitting muscle memory and a sense of orientation you'll desperatly need flying a CP.
Don't get me wrong - quads are quite ugly in my eyes - I'm still a heli-type of guy, but at the moment I have 7 helis and 5 quads - 2 quads ordered an only one additional heli in the pipeline, so imagine how addictive these buggers are....

Edit:
Just to show what even a small toy micro quad (39 USD RTF incl shipping!!! ) does in windy conditions any FP will be sh****** his pants.
hubsan x4 in wind (2 min 8 sec)

look at the windsock and listen to the storm...
