I have to replace the lower frames on my 450 after a crash, it had the stock carbons on it. I cannot find carbon lowers without buying a upper and a lower, i did find a set of aluminum lowers for 13 dollars and a set of fiberglass lowers for 15, what is better and why not by the other one? just wondering, will still most likely go with the fiberglass lower frame set off heliproz but still just wondering. Thanks

yeah for me it depend on the heli,i got 2 450 trex, the bitch (the one that i flew most) i put with the almunium frame, if it crash and dosent effect the front side it can be use over and over compare to the CF of GF frame, for me to try a new manuevere the bitch will be the Fleet heheheh and hence the Scorpion motor got the Power the weight is dosent matter for me.

The different between the V1 and V2 is the upper frame the V2 is flat on the back side for easy mounting gyro to the down side (under the tail boom mounting) but the V1 got a curve soo to mount the gyro downside is either by trimming it bit or buying the gyro mounting plate, if u dare to mount ur gyro on the top is up to u, i ve seen ppl crashing the heli and broke the gyro...

and the alum frame can be repair using ur thumb or hammer.

They used to sell the V2 lowers only, but it seems that everyone is out of stock on them now. You can still buy the V2 fiberglass frames for just the lowers, and I'm not sure they're much different from the CF ones performance wise.

You can try calling Ed at GrandRC and he might be able to sell you just the bottoms. He has done this for me in the past! Ed is great like that and always willing to work with you.

Check on this link, they all seem to have just the lower carbon frames HS1183-00 in stock. http://www.google.com/search?q=HS11...lient=firefox-a

Not sure why its putting a happy face in my link, but just go to google and type in HS1183-00 and you will find all the places that sell them.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
