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

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.

dan at custom Heli Parts has a version of this frame in kit form -- he calls it the 700DL

http://customheliparts.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_74&product_id=350

It is becoming a popular base for for trex 800 upgrades
