Nelsonisms, I rebuilt the mainframe out of balsa wood!

hey, can you imagine it exploding itself.. a balsa wood 450 helicopter?


you can see how much of the frame was removed. mainly just the lower esc tray. I went with a smaller and lighter YGE40 so it fit nicely snuggled under the main gear. this also helped raise the CG.
