The thing I found odd is all the spare write from the 2 rear servos, used to not having enough not too much and nowhere to put it

FWIW here's a couple of pics - most of the wire can be led internally which is nice. The ESC cable can be run aong the battery tray, I got some Biro plastic vacuum formed wrapper and used that to hold the wire in the battery slot but you could just tape it in place as shown on the Kasama web site.

Agree with Scooby-Doo there is a lot of redundant wire from the roll servos - gonna trim them down when I get the chance

I put 451's in mine and the wires are shortened already so I had no issues there. Just got to find somewhere to put my sats

I had more of an issue with the tail servo wire but I just wrapped it up and added a cable tie.

I have ESC question! I set mine mode 4 and it was dynamite with low throttle curves (about 40%)! Then i set and mode 9 for lipos and heli become very soft (idle1 60%). Should i reset it without mode 9 or just increase my curves! Both fly times i use the same butteries!

MOde 9 shouldn't affect flight performance - just voltage of cut off I think I'd reset - mode 1 - then do a mode 4 and mode 9 and adjust curves - 60% would be very soft with a motor in the low 500s kV - what motor are you running ?

2 reasons, firstly it makes a sacrificial front portion of the frame if you stack it on the nose, increasing the chance you won't have to rebuild the main frame. Secondly, in a hope that the any vibrations are dampened by the rubbers holding the frame portions.

Also it will protect the ESC and front li-po more so by them being on this sacrifical part

It does actually work, I downed my Dune very heavily on its skids, enough to break bth sets of landing gear, and it broke the front CF mount attachment. Was a 3 minute job to swap outnthe front frame piece, and 1/3 the price!

John, as usual your work and presentation is exemplary. As a direct result of your attention to detail, I will more than likely be $900 or so dollars LIGHTER in the wallet.

When I first saw the Dune, I was interested. NOW- I just HAVE to get one-ASAP

It really is a great time to be in this hobby!!
