be sure to post your finished heli and i'll do the same
I'm not even thinking of trying to fit the FC in the Align A-109 fuse...I've got an EXI 500 with a Copter-X flapping 4-blade for that. I've got to work on my basic piloting skills some more before I think about finishing that project. I have thought about a less-expensive 500-class fuse for the FC though, but I'm still in the "thinking" phase.

I seem to recall from one of your mega-threads at another site that you have to shorten a 500 boom slightly when doing your belt mod. Excuse the noob question, but why do you have to do that? Seems to me that if you left the boom as-is, it could be fitted into a 500 fuse with fewer modifications. I assume it must have something to do with available belt lengths? This is way out of my league at the moment, but I'm just curious.
