    So I got my frame in the mail and will use my white 500+ to move all the electronics too. This is a very nice mod and is very light weight.

    I like the look. I think the top would look great to use the carbon fiber wrap/skin to match the landing gear and other CF look. Depending on where you live there are places that hydro dip plastic parts with any type carbon fiber color/pattern you want onto the plastic then shoot several coats of clear to make it look nice and glossy. They have good quality carbon fiber look vinyl on Ebay also.
    Did you say you could get a retractable landing gear kit for it or was that another post? I read so much some days on the forum here I get lost on what I read where.
    It does look great though!

    It didn't come with one it's fixed gear, but I'm sure they are out there. I imagine you could use those off of a flamewheel 450.

    Yep, that's exactly what I'm going to do with my bird. Already have the gear, just have to wire them up.

    I'm glad someone got the canopy, I was wondering what it would look like. I'm going to leave mine bare, just looks very custom rather than store bought.

    Alright started the tear down. Looking at it I'm going to cut a notch to get esc and motor out together. I will cut red and black wires 2 inched from mother board and add bullet connectors. uploadfromtaptalk1466649878840.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1466649883138.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1466649889253.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1466649892100.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1466649894701.jpg

    Got the 3mm bullets on was going to use 2mm but just decided on the 3mm. I will have to connect them and put another piece of heat shrink to keep from a possible short. uploadfromtaptalk1466778144461.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1466778147954.jpg
