So i was working on my helicopter on the bench one day with the TX in my lap and it slid off and broke the throttle hold switch. No way was I going to waste hours of my life trying to contact Walkera about it. I would have had much better luck calling Wow hobbies. Since my Dad and his father used to own a Radio Shack franchise with a electronics repair shop in the back. I decided to just take matters into my own hands. This should be child's play, IF i can find a toggle switch small enough to fit! So i took a trip to my local shack.

Ok, I am starting this build log to start getting some of my D05 info and pictures together. Since i didn't take that many pics when i did the initial upgrade to the D02S parts I will touch on it some here where I had to change out the heli's air frame because i broke the RX shelf off. There will also be a modification to strengthen the air frame as well as some other tips and tricks.
