This is my updated fleet of helis minus one nano CPS that's waiting on a swashplate.

Decided to add some visuals to my helis so I picked up some monocoat and went to town.

First upgrades on my new 130s
Posted by yours truly | Sep 18, 2018 @ 03:56 PM | 1,390 Views
So I recently got back into RC helicopters after a lengthy break and selling all my old stuff. I've already got 2 blade nanos and a blade 130s with a dx6e tx. It's good to be back and I'm thoroughly enjoying it

I've been flying cp helis for a lil over 4 months and have progressed a lot in that time, I figured it's about time I got a decent charger that can charge all my lipos. I did a lil reading and eventually went to my lhs and bought a sigma eq mini and the leads for charging my nano lipos and 130x lipos. Total cost was $80 bucks $60 for the charger with A/C power plug, a very impressive balance board, and even a D/C power plug with clips for connecting to a 12v battery. I must say I am completely satisfied as I've seen many other comparable chargers going for over $100. Here's some pics and if your like me looking for your 1st balance charger I highly recommend the Sigma EQ Mini.

Got my 1st blade recently, decided on the nano cpx. I added a little color and some mcpx landing skids so far. Here's some pics...

So I noticed the tail motor gets pretty hot on my v911, so I fumbled with a few ideas for a heat sync till I found one that worked. I ended up using bread ties and just stripped them down to the wire and they easily wrapped around the motor and stayed. Plus they are super lightweight and it actually keeps the motor cooler and helps it cool faster.

Here's a link 4 a short video I made... enjoy

So everyone has there own take at how to fix the vertical tail fin on the WL V912 so that the tail rotor does not hit the ground. This was my fix with what I had at my disposal. I found an extra whisk in my kitchen that a few of the wires were broken halfway off, so I cut a piece, bent it, then super-glued it on the leading edge of the fin. I wrapped a small piece of electric tape around after it was dry for extra support as I figured super glue alone might break off. I didn't weigh anything, as it totally slipped my mind, but I guarantee its lighter than using an F-45 fin which I've seen others do. I approximate the weight to be around a half a gram given the length of wire I used and the tape. Hope this helps someone in my shoes. I don't have much for "hobby supplies" yet as I'm fairly new to flying so I was creative

Happy Flying!!!

WARNING: THIS IS ONLY FOR 4CH FP HELIS WITH 45 DEGREE FLY-BARS

remember those little foam thingies when you bought your transmitter that were on the joysticks in the packaging? One of those, a razor blade, and a zip tie. No more dents in your tail boom.
