Well It being Halloween and All (well last night) I decided to post some photos of my Fraken-heli
Its Part Frakenstien part heli... you'll see what I mean. And Yes! it still works! (now have a pristine Trex 450se v2 so I didn't want to waste any more on this flying junk.)
Stripped main gear, Broken Strut, broken frame, horz stabalizer for a vert... cable tied servo, cable tied Align 2100 battery... Trex 450 rear landing strut :)

WOW! That's really....uhm...well....unique...
Sorry but I couldn't even get close to letting my heli (only one right now) get that bad.
Are the servos held on by nothing more that zip ties?
Looks kinda dangerous...

Yup... very secure...hmmm yes,
well funny you should say that. The Zip ties feel stronger and have less flex than the original mounts.
But I'd have to say, on the box it claims to be able to do 3D... I tried... I think they lied :P
I don't fly this heli anymore, just to prove that it still can fly... just.
The only part holding up is Align rear skid mount, oh yeah and the spektruk 6100e

Can't you tell the brand by the shear quality of the heli.... hehehe :)
Its was a Walkera 60 - fully upgraded, CNC Head & Tail.
skid snapped, Motor pinion broke, Alu frame snapped, servos broke, new TX,RX....
After owning a Walkera for over two years... I cannot recommend them to anyone. I ended up replacing every electronic component except the Gyro.
Flying the Trex 450se V2 is like a dream, It handles beautifully. The walkera was like flying a pig. Constantly fighting it. But I did learn how to fly with the Walkera, constantly making adjustments with the sticks, which I think has made my flying much better.
The walkera also got me hooked into the hobby, after I had a taste... I was back for more. I am now looking at getting a second Trex so I can go scale. And my poor old Walkera / frakenheli is gathering dust.
It has served me well, co$t me dearly, but I thank thee oh franken-heli. May you rest in pieces.
