Hey,

Just wanted to share some pictures !!.

I finally had some time to take photos of my custom heli based on the sonic superframe v1 (A.K.A. willy).

I dedicate this t-rex to willy. If not for him, I would have not decided to keep the superframe and install it. I have to say his recommendation was right on !

The wires are all messy, I will make it nice next spare time.

It flies excellent, as good or better than my stock SE.

Here are some pictures of it hovering in my living room (do not try at home).

I used the fixed lower block provided by the vendor. No other thing was necessary.

It is 100% unmodified.

I did not use the provided spacer, I just made a 1/16" tall aluminum ring with 5 mm Inner Diameter and 7mm Outer Diameter (1 mm thick).

The metal swash plate ccpm ring was put for looks, I had it working fine with a nylon ccpm ring.

Nothing binds or touches the frame.

I am using Futaba standard micro servos, and a cheap align 6g x servo in the tail to make company to the GY-401.

It may as well be a copper washer.

The vendor provided an align spacer.

You may also use an old or worn one way shaft from the align heli, and cut a ring 1/16 " tall.

Yes, something from the hardware store that is 5 mm inner diameter will be great, as long as it is not more than 1 mm thick, or 7 mm outer diameter.

I really do not want to disassemble the thing right now, so I apologize but can not show you a photo of the washer.
