Lol, them damn Phoenix sharks. I took the tail apart first to replace the boom. $50 in parts and most of that when to the main blades.

My buddy Mark takes his photography hobby seriously. Seems like everyone has a fancy camera these days, but he takes the time to learn how to work it. He's been shooting at the club for a couple years and his photography skills have been growing the same way our flying skills do.

He has a pretty badass 40% extra too.

Speaking of crazy good fiberglass canopy prices.... One of these should be delivered today. It'll go on my converted 450 3D, but still relevant to the conversation...

They are Top Filte Monokote self adhesive trim sheets. I was able to pick them up at my LHS but certainly they can be had from any number online vendors.

It's probably easier to grab the product codes from this site and search on those. They have a bunch of color options.

Neon Orange = TOPQ4136
Neon Yellow = TOPQ4135
