The NEW picooz body mod thread.... Stealth attack heli mod

To any body who missed on the first two annoyingly long threads, join the fun with this fresh new thread!

Just finished!! 11 grams, and looks great! missile pods and chin cannon all the way with black sharpie paint job.

Statistics:

looks-150% increase
flight time-50% decrease (wings make downthrust and 1 gram heavier)
performance-40% increase (faster)
conntrolability-30% decrease (this heli alway made a very wide right turn, and faster head speed creates a VERY wide turn)

Overall worth the 3 hours, meant o look awsome but not to fly well...

Happy modding!

bit harsh there dud...dude is having fun messing with his havok, so be it. cut the guy some slack!

it looks pretty cool with wings and rockets. but you need some more layers of black marker...the purple just isn't cutting it...maybe even a thin coat of paint would work.

Keep modding, Ironbowser! People don't always leave comments, but believe me, we all enjoy seeing what others are doing! I thought your mod looked cool!

I think it looks pretty kicka$$.

Nice job.

I can think of worse ways to spend your time. I do stuff like this while watching TV. I find that having a Baseball game on and tinkering with my RC stuff is a great way to relax.

Too much spare time??? This took about only 2 hrs. with quick- dry CA glue, it gets the job done fast.

Lets see you do better, lightspeed.
