Update on MB-3
UPDATE: MB-3 still fully operational. Replaced all the analog HS65MG servos with Hyperion Atlas DS09SCD and DS09GMD for tail.
**More updates coming!.
The MB-3 has undergone a few more mods in order to achieve a 21:42 minute flight time on 1 pack. I am using a hybrid configuration running 3S and 4S packs depending on what I feel like. I use the 3S mostly for practice and the 4S for going all out.
Here is the MB-3 latest configuration.

There is not really a place that I know of where you can buy it like that, but it starts as a this landing gear that can be purchased at www.heliwarehouse.com:
I used a heat gun to slowly bend the landing gear legs to give then the wide stance and then applied a thin layer of automotive gun metal paint to give it the gun metal look.
Hope this helps.
The motor works great. I upped the pinion to an 11T for good sport performance on 3S and it absolutely rocks on 4S. I can do flips and rolls on a dime with the 4S setup while still maintaining a 10 minute flight time at ~3000 RPM on the head.
with this motor you definitively need to go 4S to really get the best out of it.
