Nice looking stuff. Can you give a list of all the upgrades. Flight impressions as well.

Another thing that might be worth looking into are upgraded motors. I don't have any experience with these but have thought about trying them.

Lastly, use the "wide view" so the images don't blow out the sides. Its in the bottom under "options".

What is that microheli? I have flown an upgraded commanche with Esky parts and uh yeah flies like a coaxial Only crisper. The best thing you can do for a coax is longer servo arms and stiffer blades. But then the crashes will be more spectacular. Anyway nice machine there Rallysoob I bet youll want more motor eventually though all that weight makes the co-comanche waddle like a duck. Once you get flying them good or outside you may want to check out those extreme motors.

No Really I am the club President!!!

So far so good! Im really impressed with how much more stable and easy to fly it is with the extended shaft. It is amazing how much better it withstands damage with the metal parts/durablades. It has fell a few times from around 5 to 10ft onto hardwood floor with no problems. I was breaking parts every flight before this upgrade so I am totaly stoked. I'm in love with my lil heli now. It turns much harder and obviously no blade strike. it's a little slower flying forward than before but he added stability makes it worth while for me.

Next on the list is the 180 motors w/ fuses, 20c batteries, and carbon flybar from helitek. Might get the helitek steel inershafts also. Im interested in what the different models feel like in the air. i aready have aluminum coupler coming too.

I have replaced the front wheels with hi-quality rubber wheels which absorb alot of the shock that would otherwise break the standard setup. Im making a little vid to show how much more abuse this setup will take and should be ready today or tomorrow. For now, here is a pic of the wheels.

Also, I have built another heli from all the spare parts

Edit: what would longer servo arms do for me? wouldn't that throw off my swashplate?

I believe that is the hottest Lama I have ever seen! Making the servo arms longer will give the swash more throw. As long as you don't exceed the mechanical limits of the swash and head, it would probably quite a bit of fun. One thing I think Tryan ran into was the upper and lower blades hitting. Too much swash deflection would get you there sooner. If the upgraded shaft is longer that might give you more room to add additonal tilt.

thanks for the advice. I'm gonna mess around with some longer arms and see what happens. I have the extended inner shaft that I think may be long enough to push it pretty hard. It is quite a bit taller than my stock one. Anyway, I'll let you know...
