Old School 450 Build

After wrecking my EXI 450 earlier this summer, I wanted to finish an old-school build so it would be good to go this fall and next flying season. I have about 30+/- packs on the new build and I couldn't be happier. The model was built mostly with what I had in the parts box.
-EXI 450SE V2 CF Frame, main gear and tail drive gear;
-CopterX flybarred metal head;
-CopterX tail boom, belt and metal tail;
-EXI landing gear;
-Align skids;
-fusino canopy and stabs;
-TURNIGY 450 H2218 BRUSHLESS MOTOR 3,550KV/RPM, 12 tooth steel pinion;
-Esky 72 mHz rx;
-Dimensions micro antenna;
-CC 35 ESC;
-Dimension Eng. Sport BEC;
-HS65MG cyclic servos;
-Futaba GY401 gyro;
-HS-81 tail servo;
-Rail 326mm Main Blades;
-TX is a Futaba 6EXP: Pitch Curve set to 50, 75,100 (+/-9degrees), Throttle Curve set to a flat 72;
-After a 5 minute flight a 2200mAh pack comes down at about storage voltage.

She flys butter smooth and has a good bit of pop :-)
