That was cool, seems like he have modified the frame a bit to get the tank to fit.
Maybe someone have more detailed information about the mod.

What do you think then its an os .18 engine pull or top start, solid main shaft, drive is 12-1 head speed up to 2666, i love flying my 500 ep just get fed up of the batteries only lasting 9-10mins so i made a nitro one as well, can get upto 15mins per tank and it actually weighs less too and if ive worked it out right will have more power to weight than my 6c 2800 powered rex 500 but will have to see

Very cool! Love it when it's done different.

Any vids of your 500"N"SP doing some loops or forward flight?

I'd be interested to hear the full details of this, such as how you went about making the frames, what pinion/main gear/fan/shroud/fuel tank etc you have used. And also how it flies! When this idea has come up before, a lot of people have suggested that it would end up being too heavy and underpowered.
