Pictures of my CP Piccolo flying

Hello All

My Berg Mini 6(really good reciever, no glitching) arrived today so I hooked it up, charged my battery, and flew my Piccolo

The preformance of my Piccolo can only be described my two words, rock solid! I was flying in gusty wind, and my Piccolo handled almost as well as my upgraded Eco 8

Enjoy the pictures

Looks great Carlo. I still haven't got mine together yet but was wondering what mods you have on it other than the CP upgrade?

My head is a TT Raptor 30 tail rotor, and a Rocket City link to fill the space in the tail rotor hub. I drilled out the link with a 3 mm bit to that it would fit the main shaft. I modified the swash by adding a 3rd ball and I also preformed my version of the ball-swash mod. For the pitch control arms I used 2 modified TT links. For the anti rotation are I used a plastic clevis(from my Eco 8) and part of the TT tail pitch slider.


My Electric Components are the following:

Astro 010 and a Jeti controller(no problems with this setup)

Pixie 7 (for the tail--pulled the + lead to disable the BEC)

Futaba GY240

3 HS 55 servos

8 cell 720 mah NiMH battery

Berg Mini 6



Recommeded MIA equipment

Weighted wood blades(a darn good custom job--the blades tracked really well)

Retro fit landing gear(every Pic owner should do this mod and it is onlly 10 bucks for the whole thing--very very strong).

It looks great and thanks for sharing that with us.

I was wondering whether you can take a few closer pictures of the CP mods. Thanks.

Ah, yours is a home grown CP. Very nice. Is it CCPM?
