Im in the process of upgrading my V50C and after seeing Wife's post about bracing the rear skid mount point i started to look at other solutions as I didnt have a spare tail fin to destroy..

I came up with the idea of using the break off tabs from the canopy mounts to hold the mounting block.. Im not sure how effective this will be in preventing a break across the indent where the mount should be..
My theory is the a heavy landing the tab will move, hitting the frame in a thicker part of the frame, rather than directly on the weak point.

Comments? suggestions?

i would say this is not a good idea.

the amount of vibration may cause them to break while just flying and that could be bad if they break in flight...

when i had my v50c's, i never had an issue with the frames breaking down there, or anywhere for that matter and ive had them go in pretty hard with no issues.

AZ interesting idea man but not sure i would try Im telling you make brace under the tank somehow to thickin that up you wont be sorry. I have read countless post here and other places about the breaks here. Even chris from rcheliworkz mentioned it. Better safe then sorry these frames are bank money$$$$ Better to prevent it i wish i did i had a pain in the butt fixing it when it was already broke!!!
