Canopy is not ready yet but looks cool in flight with plain white

Look like stock 450L blades.

Did you paint the tail piece and everything else or are they metal parts powdercoated maybe. assuming paint.

Haha thats why i asked you earlier why you didn't use the 360s on your stretch cuz align blades are usually great blades but tend to be a bit cheaper than some others. I love the G5 Maverikk's on my 500, really wanna try stock ones cuz i think the wide cord blades do a lot for flight but i could be totally wrong but theres gotta be a reason there expensive and most love them..

If so what parts / where from?

H20Rower [P.52 pics] -- Great way to tidy the wiring. I am waiting on some H3020 servos to upgrade mine and will migrate it all to a new frame - original one not that old but probably suffered some strain from rotor strikes during a few landings. Is that large diameter heatshink you are using to hold the wires? I have copied the pics and will do the same. And is the CF tail boom more durable than the aluminium ones? - I have put various degrees of bends in three booms so far. Also love the metal fitout, but it is expensive.

Thanks.

The black material around the wires running down to the base/back of the heli is something I bought at my local hobby shop. I believe they called it spiral wire wrap. It's a hard plastic, not a heat shrink tubing material. It works nicely. It will conform to slight variances in wire bundle diameters. It can be purchased in different diameters and even different colors. I don't recall the size of my spiral wrap and no longer have the packaging. Just do a google search for "spiral wire wrap".

As for the CF boom, I honestly don't know how it compares to aluminum for durability. My guess would be that the stock aluminum is stronger. I've crashed with both and have replaced both. I know the CF is lighter and I prefer the look.

Good luck with your rebuild and new servos!

The rebuild after my first crash with the 450X. Added some extras and a new canopy - the ESC still needs to be installed.

Looks good man. Also looks like youve got some serious coin on that heli! Do I see a BD3SXon there? Did you have that canopy custom made, based on the Manucian?

thanks, i am putting some more work into it than normal, because it is to cold here to fly anyway. the crash destroyed quite a lot, which had to be replaced (incl. blades, canopy, swash, frame and so on - all none-stock servos survived though).

yes, this is the BD3SX, although it was already installed, when i crashed . the situation did not look like i would have had to push the button. i try to fly and clear situations, as if i had no BD3SX installed - it only makes me feel much more secure regarding visibility and orientation problems. and it works great. i sold all my smaller helies since i have it installed, because there is no need to fly smaller when a BD3SX is installed.

and yes, this is a custom version of the manucian. it was you, who told me about this canopy and the black main gears. thanks again for your support!

Agreed, that looks pretty bad ass BB. Very clean and perfect color coordination.
