Alright, since you're open to any, I can't help myself.

Put some big blades on the top, it might help get that thing off the ground.

What is the "Troll's" official name?

Looks like there should be a column at the top of the pedestal.

Awesome looking heli - I know nothing about the new ones - what izzit, your own design & scratch build, perhaps?

I flew a few Concept 30's and one EP10 - that was about . . . five years ago? Now, you're making me wanna get into heli's agin (no spelling error - I really talk that way).

I thought vibration almost made heli's useles for a/p - obviously that isn't true or you wouldn't be doing it. Keep us posted with more pics & details!

It’s a Logo 10 I plan on flying a mini digi-vid cam. No column in the middle just on the ends. Droll troll LOL. How do guys like the name theme thing?

Id put one of those FS8 copilots on it to help stabilize for smoother video. Add taller landing gear for an underbody forward facing dv cam as well I've been thinking of turning my ECO 8 into a video ship, but for now the cost is prohibitive.

DANG, I wish I had your yard!!! I usta envy your a/p skills, now it's your yard & heli too - when will it end?

What's the rest of the "Bush" sign read? Or do we wanna know? (ha)

Where's the web link for the heli manufacturer?

Crash just ordered the new co-pilot. Thanks for the heads up. Buzz- I know it just the Bush sign and that big weed that make the place more appealing. I threw the sign away after the election (just beating the rest of the town to the punch) Ready to make me an offer on the house? If so I’ll make up a custom sign that sez BUZZ! www.logoheli.com

Patrickegan, yes maybe the were Beach Boys!

About the picture, I noticed that two arrows was missing; with your permission I added them.

What power system are you planning on using? How do you plan to mount the camera??

After you complete the build and mount the camera, I'd be interested to know what your total investment is and if it is worth it!

If I could get a decent profit for an a/p job, I may be interested in the heli if it's a reliable A/P ship. Once I am a reliable heli pilot of course!!

Cantz- Sure

Rcfever- The motor is still to be determined I know I want to run a 4s4p battery a co-pilot and a lower kv motor then the C50 13L Hacker. With video down link and other sundries not including the camera $2000. At this point the plan is for the camera to be fixed. The Troll is a tool it is being built for a certain task. It's hard to beat the SS.
