Must do Mod's (in my opinion)
- any type battery tray system (I'm using the heli option)
- metal secondary gear (next to main)
- DFC to HPS FBL (gain 10mm against boom strike & pro long Servo gear train)
- go with Servo plastic case to keep weight down
- sand the edges of frame to keep wires happy
- quick disconnect canopy mounts

Heli flies incredible and Visually easy to see with high cross section
- if you have a v1 .. at eye level, it may be hard to see when it's coming striaght at you

Thanks. I have a couple Trex 700's and I imagine that this is going to be much easier to see in any orientation. Ill look into the other things you mentioned.

Landing Gear Rubber nuts?

Question: I have a used/new to me 700 Nitro. Where do I get some "rubber-nuts" for the landing gear? These gear pipes look a bit larger in diameter than the typical Align stuff.

thx Jim
