Weight RTF including 2200 battery 840G (1 lb 13.6 OZ)
Mechanics: King2 modified
Modifications: removed stock tailboom, using ESC and electric tailmotor off my AXE CP. Using a 450 size brushless motor 30 Amp (Dynam) speed controller. Using 325mm main blades from my belt Cp

The Blackhawk has flown well with this setup. I plan to fly it tomorrow if the weather is good. It will be its first flight after the new paint job.

I find that keeping the heli within a 200 foot radius works great for me being this dark of a color. Looks kewl in flight and NOE.

Anything in particular you wanting to know about Lexan or PETG ? Myself, I personally dont like working with it, Its hard to paint and glue. But it does allow for a built in high gloss finish.

The lexan is nice because even if your painting skills suck your paint job looks great on the outside.... You almost have to do a solid color too.... The color selection for lexan is is pretty limited.... I prefer painting the outside myself...
