Here is my latest toy. A Nine Eagles Bravo SX Micro indoor heli. This is based on the Solo Pro platform, and fly's very similarly to a solo pro.

So far I have done the following "improvements":

Blade MCPX Tail boom & motor
Eflite battery connector
Velcro battery mount (stops me squashing my eflite batteries and allows more tuning of the COG)
