I'll ask my buddy who gave me this set. I'm waiting on another set myself. This thing is awsome, it rivals my logo 600 anyday. Fastest roll/flip rate I've ever experienced in my life. Sick

my son and I are the creators of this machine - the premise was thw lightest possible chopper with the weight as high as possible
our rtf weight was 7.5 lbs
we have also built 550 and 600 varients
550 5.5 lbs
600 6 lbs

I've been working with Gerryg lately on cutting his new design. If you get his permission I can make a set for you.

I love this :) Definitely want to build one. Its a very unique design and I like your use of common parts to make a truly special beast!

I would like to see a pic of the frame with a 10s pack on it though. I just cant see how that works in my mind.

All in all killer work.

I would sure be interested in one. I looked on the customheliparts.com website but no joy finding one. Oh, well. It would have been fun and unique.
