OK since all the other forums seem to have this as a sticky I thought it would be nice if i started one here too!

The bad part is I dont actually have a photo of mine! only video

I know many of you posted pics of yours in the build vid topic which has been moved to this forum but if you can please post them again here so other can find them easily.

Adrian,

Did you paint the body yourself? The colors look amazingly like the TRex 450SE V2 colors and had me fooled for just a moment. Then I saw that big Z3 sitting in there and was immediatley impressed. Nothing like starting out with the big gun.

Carl

Yeah I painted it myself with Pactra spray paint for polycarbonate. I used the Scheme on my T600 canopy but the yellow and blue came out brighter...I like it though!

I fly a 450 with a Medusa and a 600 with a Neu...I couldn't leave the stock motor in my 550 :twisted:

I couldn't get the pirorate I wanted so I tried some Hirobo Freya blades (plastic, 92mm?)

I will switch to some smaller carbon blades soon

This is my first time painting a model... i've been painting plastic models before, but this was a totally new challenge.

After my last hard landing (no skids and no vertical fin), i decided to make my own. EC120 skid design made from aluminum tube and some styrene plastic make all the difference.

I went for high visibility colors. First i wanted a true Mako shark appearance, but safety first got me into fluorescent department.


Before / After...
