The nice thing about a wood frame is that it can be repaired easily with glue. LMH is supposed to release an aluminum version of the Corona crutch (frame) in the very near future. Also, choppahedz.com sells a CF crutch that is available now.

I went with the CF replacement from http://www.choppahedz.com

It was pretty simple, just move the components from the plywood crutch to the Carbon Fiber version. The kit includes all the necessary hardware.

Krazy Krutch's?

Hello there,
How does one get ahold of Matt Schumaker to see about getting a crutch? I tried a search on here and the only hit was this thread..
Does he have a web address?
Sorry about the lame questions but just getting started into the e-heli thing..

Thanks
Lynn

Don't forget the aluminum one from LMH. It's about $45 and includes all the HW you need to replace the stock wood crutch. Here's a pic.
