Align MD500 E Build OD Green ***Revised***
Well when I received the Align MD500 E green fuse, my first thought was "This looks to much like Fisher Price". Then I decided it was time to spice things up a bit. Went to hobbytown and bought two cans of Olive Drab Green and went to work..

STEP 1: Repainted with OD Green

STEP 2: WIll be adding lights from Thanh.. The lights also serve as a LiPo Alarm (coming soon)

I left mine with the rather smokey tint that it comes with. Personally I prefer that better than the stark black windows.

Looking forward to future shots.

Nice work
Thats nice, but looking at the mainshaft you have coming out of there friend.

If I may be so bold, it looks a bit long and looking at it again, a bit bent too!

You might want to look at that before you fly. It will ruin the paintjob

Ha ha

Yeah but
Yeah but wait till you use that multicoloured glow plug!
The "flame" might be a bit extreme, so you might want a cold plug in there.

Hey! isn't RR brilliant. All these people offering support and advice

Also I am curious how you ran your wiring, such as gear legs and T-Tail.
