James - Just curious. Where did you buy your Joker CX? I'm in the queue for one from Fitz at FXaeromodels and wondered if the missing part thing was a rare occurance on the Minicopter or a problem like it has been for LMH and their Corona's?
Thanks for posting your day by day build. I'll be watching and learning.
Cheers - Boyd

How much faster without the pics?
Lv2Fly, have you determined how much faster you could be done with the Joker if you didn't have to stop for pics along the way?
Very nice helicopter, I have seen a few videos of it and it is amazing. I am just starting out with my Corona right now and taking pics along the way. I am probably a few years away from a Joker...
Perhaps a Venture next?
Nice website, I'll keep tabs on your progress. I really like it when people go to all the trouble to post all the little details about something, the information is absolutely invaluable when others are researching the same subject. It takes a lot of guess work out of the process.

There is an article on that helicopter and it's designer in Dec or Jan Rotor magazine. It looks to be a super refined "BMW/Mecedes" type of machine.
When you get finished please report back on how it flies.
