Process of modding the Blade CP - New Fuselage &amp; Landing gear
Attached are pictures of my BCP after I modded the landing gear. I did that to go well with the new fuselage. Does anyone have any idea how I should go about putting the two pieces of the fuselage together and mounted on the BCP?

Another dilemma I'm going through is after I attached the landing wheels, the height of the BCP was shortened. So I decided to cut the tail propeller shorter. ---Bad idea. Now even at full right trim, the whole bcp wants to turn left. I also adjusted the 4in1 prop to full speed and still no use. -- unless if anyone can suggest a better solution, I probably will have to mod the wheels higher also.

Is there a faster rear motor I can use? or a better rear propeller maybe?

Problem 1: Fuselage assembly.
Problem 2: Tail propeller.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

I put a Century airwolf body on my blade recently. I just punched holes where the stock canopy mount rod hit on the airwolf body. You might go with a DD tail it will take some modding on the fuse to work. I put a GWS prop adapter on my blades tail to bring the prop out further from the body. Also I use the 3020 props, they have to be drilled out to fit on the prop adapter though.

As for the glueing of the canopy, mine came prepainted and assembled but the bottom is just taped together to allow for mounting and unmounting. I have had the fuse for a couple of years and the tail got smashed so I ordered a new airwolf body but it came unpainted and unassembled like yours.

I may try to tackle the retract mod some day.....heh

With this mod you can reduce the diameter of the t/r blades...

Fri. night mod.
Instead of clubbing w/my friends, I decided to stay home and mod my blade. (Something's wrong w/me) So far I've extended the rear wheels and shortened the front wheel - which brought up the tail so I was able to re-install the carbon fiber tail prop. It flies well now. Problem 2 solved!

I still have to work on the body which will take most of my time I think.

As you see, R2 is holding a Century Hummingbird High Performance motor which came with the fuselage package. Does anyone know if that will fit and improve my BCP's performance? Currently, I'm still using the stock batteries & motors.

Ok here's where I am now. It was hell trying to cut it perfectly and glueing it together. It took a while since I have to wait for the glue to settle. Then I had to tape the windows manually since the fuse didn't come with window masks unlike R/C cars. Next is to sand it then to finally paint it.

Now it looks just like Wonder Woman's invisible copter.

The Century motor is pretty much the same as the Blade. It isn't any more powerful. Some, including me, have observed that it runs cooler. Maybe it is timed a little different.

hglndr -
Sorry to hear the BK117 didn't work out. I flew the Jet Ranger with a DD tail, 3s lipo, and had no problem with tail authority.

The main motor did get hotter & faster, and I couldn't fly as long. That was my only complaint. I loved it otherwise. It looked awesome in the air, and was very stable. It also weathervaned very nicely in FFF.

I also ended up cutting two holes in the windshield of the canopy for airflow.

I may go back to the jet ranger after I get my brushless motor worked out.
