Northern NJ, Westchester and Rockland Counties in NY, Connecticut? I'd like to see one up close and personal. I want to see the battery tray system and how it is placing/removing batteries and how easily I may eject them in a crash. Also interested to see the lower frame section(s) to evaluate the frames crash-worthiness.

Thanks

Ps, I planted mine early this year hard. Right on the gear. Both batteries ejected. Nothing happened to the frames what so ever. Tail and head took a beating. Frames are solid. I think the packs ejected because the straps were chaffing on the frame edges. I now have them protected with chaff tape.

Battery mounting is a sinch. Before I got the heli, I thought it looked like a pain, but once I got the heli it's easy. The batteries mount to plates. The plates slide into pins on the front side of the frame, the back of the plates have a hole/grommet that fit over guide pins. Really, you can swap packs in under a minute.
Love this heli. It's a solid machine.

Thank you.

What is the difference between "regular" model and the Formula?

Main difference between regular and formula X7 is rotor head and swash.
Regular X7 has DFC-like design, with only 2 main pitch control rods linking the grip and swash plate, plus two rod position holder on each side.
Formula X7 has traditional phase arms on swash plate, that is, there are 4 links on the upper plate of swash. (swash plate、rotor head、main shaft、main gear set are different from regular X7)
And, some other upgrades on formula x7.

A center bearing on the rotor head, upgraded one-way bearing on the main gear and auto gear mounting plate, upgraded tail pitch control slide ring, upgraded tail shaft,bigger and more beautiful canopy (mounting arms are different from regular X7 as well),harder landing skid(black), kit with Halo blades instead of Funkey ones, some trivial modification like using some red color scheme on parts...

Plus, Formula canopies are wrapped around the frame, more sleek than the previous x7 canopies.
