I didnt know this site existed. Very in depth.
These are my 450's. A TRex V2 and a Belt CP. I like to design and build, always been that way since I was a kid. Both have many custom mods. Both have custom made lower frames. All the fins are laser cut G-10. I own a laser machine shop in Jamestown,CA. I did all the polishing and plating and most anodizing myself. Made molds for the canopies. They are fiberglass and I painted them as well. Both helis have Spectrum receivers and 401 Gyro's. TRex has JR servo's while the CP has Futaba's. Notice the frame covers I made for the TRex. I call them skirts. They hide the wiring well and have covers for the empty servo locations and they weigh 1 gram a set. Most say it looks like they belong there. Made the landing gear for both. They are lighter and much stronger than stock. Better looking than anything out there in my opinion. There are much more mods to both but it just gets boring to point out. Call them what you like.. Trailer queens or whatever. I get my satisfaction from building. Pics do not do justice at all.

Thanks, RonO





This is the detail of the chassis covers for the main frame and empy servo. Also the custom lower frame with gyro mount.

This is the TRex bottom.

The Belt CP bottom with the custom lower chassis that incorpoates the ESC and the gyro.

This is a chassis I designed that uses all Trex V2 hardware.
Sides and battery plate are G-10. Plastic is Delrin. Covers in the center are smoke polypropolene. All the aluminum is stock Trex 450 V2. Pretty much a direct replacement. Even custom laser cut the rubber landing skid thingies out of EPDM. Very light and very rigid. really no point in it, there are a lot of good aftermarket frames out there. I just like to build. Frame is 9mm lower than stock so my canopy sits real low. All laser cut.




Sorry about the mile long post.

Kinda cool, not into the wing thing with the fins but otherwise very original indeed, nice work.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I find the custom designs so-so,not into the wings either. However, the shape and the custom paint job of the canopy is awesome!

the vertical fins look cool. I am really digging the linkages to the swash going through the holes in the canopy. Different and cool looking.
