We got our first snow... It came early and most of the trees had leaves so there is a lot of tree damage. Also, our power was out for days....Luckily, the truck got out damage free despite having a branch fall on it.

Here is my airplane stand I made from 1 1/2" PVC pipe. It supports two 100c size planes by the wing tube and they have a loose rope tied around the tail.

It works really well for me and saves a ton of garage space!

Here is what I did to my Smart Fly pin-flag switch. I cut it down a lot so now it hardly sticks out of the fuse. I cut it with a Dremel, then sanded it back into a point. I also replaced the red flag with a bit of neon-green nylon string.

Just thought I would share.

I have two Blade 400 helis, and I am looking to sell my 2 helis as well as all my other 400 size heli stuff.

I have:

Blade 400 #2 was my second Blade 400 that I got

It has upgraded servos (a HUGE plus) and some aluminum rotor head upgrades. The servos are Hi-Tec HS-65HB servos and this heli is much more capable than the stock version. The servos are $20 a piece, for a total of $80 in upgraded servos.

It is a great condition, and has 39 flights. I have had 5 crashes, with most of them minor and the heli was repaired correctly. This one is PNP so it has everything but reciver, transmitter, and your choice of batter/charger.

It also has an upgraded canopy mounting rod that I made, it allows you to fit much bigger batteries and the canopy is easy to put on.

My other Blade 400 is the first one I got. It has 91 flights. This one is pretty smashed up, but it has a full aluminum rotor head and a full aluminum tail case. It also has upgraded servos. I would recommend taking it apart and using it for parts on the other Blade 400.

Not only do I have 2 helis, but I have a bazillion spare parts. I have a spare set of Align wood 325 main blades and a -brand new- set of some *carbon fiber Curtis Young Blood Radix 325 blades* These are the best blades you can buy IMO. I also have 4 canopies. One is a brand new one in the stock scheme, one is in the stock scheme but has a crack in it, and I the two others are custom airbrushed canopies done by me.

As for spare parts, I have frames, hardware packs, booms, gears, main shafts, belts, and pretty much two of every spare part there is for the Blade 400.

This is the ultimate CP heli starter pack. With helis, parts, I might even throw in a free battery. If you are advancing the ranks of helis, this is the pack to get if you are ready to take mSR, mCP X, SR or 120sr flying to the next level.

I'm flexible but I am asking $400. And it's well worth it.

On the far left we have the Aeroworks 100cc Extra 300 powered with a DA-120.
One plane to the right is my 3D Hobby Shop 50cc 89" AJ Slick powered by a Hacker A-80 motor. Note how its almost the same size as the Aeroworks 100cc...
One from the right is my Aeroworks 50cc Extra 300 that is BME 58cc powered. It was my first ever gas plane and true IMAC ready plane.
The right most is my beloved 71" 3DHS AJ Slick. It has a RimFire 1.20 under the cowling and it is such an awesome plane. The rolling harriers are incredible - Just as good as the 89".


On the left is my second blade 400. It has a stock E-Flight 400 motor, upgraded 30A ESC and I replaced those lame E-Flight micro servos with HS-5065MGs all around. (Much better!)
In the middle is my T-Rex 450 SEv2 that I got used from a friend back in early Feb. and I have put 78 flights on it since then. It has JR cyclic servos, Futaba S9650 tail servo and a JR Micro gyro.
Coming to the right most heli I have a T-Rex 500. -This is an old picture, as it is now flybarless- This one is just awesome. It has all the stock align gear, and it works awesome! I would recommend skipping the 450 helis and just going and getting a 500 size. They are much more stable and a whole lot easier to fly.

That's my fleet!

Hehe...I typed in 'Futaba' and Firefox wants to correct it to 'Rutabaga'
