It is a 500 Excellium Heli, AR8000 and using a DX8, Which Binded well. Reason not ready to fly is because I am making up some LED lighting system with a front landing light. This will only add approx. 100gms to the Helicopter and I don't think I will have any issues with Tail or Nose heavy CG.

Painted and shipped to me in a 90% state... Would have been happy to do more myself, Currently modifying a small ball USB camera, and finalising electronic work on a LED lighting kit (Which is under 150gms in total weight) Will also need to add some tail ballast to counter act my added extras.

Also looking at a new PAINT Job or stickers with thin layer of clear coat to make it still look Smick! More to follow soon!
