lol...The illusion works then.
The "rip job" is actually the first coats.



The paint has a real nice depth illusion to it.




Sorry for the almost hijack.I'm just a little excited about the new look

U should be excited, it does look B**** good, I would be afraid to fly it

A good paint job always impresses me, I have a relationship with paint, a love hate relationship.
I would love to be able to produce a half decent paint Job but paint hates me!!

So next is to do a field test
What pinion you have on the HM1700?
That's the same motor I use and it has gobs of power and good speed with a 12T.

Don't ya just hate when someone is just standing there watching you fly?lol...I do.

yes it holds rock solid im amazed it makes me look like i can fly lol. whan i had my throttle curve at 90 percent my tail would have serious vibs and since i didnt upgrade the boom support rods i didnt want to push my luck the whole heli sounded as if it would blow somehing in the head so i dropped my throttle curve down.

I was thinking about a 13T but I'm afraid it will over speed the head since it is flybarless.
I think it sped up the RPM's by about 15% when I dropped the flybar.

I might give it a try next time I have it tore down though.

Thanks for the info.
