The MB-6 is finally here.

The sixth generation of the MB family is finally out of the assembly line... and this time as a Hughes 500MD TOW Defender scale helicopter. It all began back in 1985 when I first saw Blue Thunder, and since then I've always wanted to have a scale Hughes 500, and now, after 25 years, the wait is over.

Here is what the MB-6 is made out of...

-EXI-450 Airframe.
-Align 500MD Tow Defender fuselage painted and weathered in olive green.
-Lightning Heli 5-Blade rotor head modified for 'flapping hinges'
-Changed rotation direction to be CCW like the real 500MD.
-RCT-450 Skyshark gray CNC tail case.
-Align 325mm plastic blades (painted black with white tips)
-Align TREX450 Pro tail rotor blades.
-Spartan DS760 gyro & Futaba 9257 tail servo.
-Skookum SK360 flybarless stabilization system.
-Scale lighting system: 2 nav lights, 2 red strobes and 1 landing light.
-Spektrum AR6100 receiver. (soon to be AR7000)
-3x HS-65MG cyclic servos.
-Upgraded all philips screws to hex heads.
