I must admit I didn't think much of grabbing one of those frames before I saw the above two pictures - looks so much more sturdy/well built. Might have to put that on the list

This style that lynx uses was on the 300X frame. I had a Elevator servo lock up on my review maiden and took a dirt nap sideways from 20 feet up. Frame had NO damage, mains broke, sheared the feathering shaft, bent and broke the DFC adjusting rods, bent the boom, broke a skid.

BUT everything on the frame itself was like new.

N/P Glad to do this for people. I don't have this in hand but I do have the build manual I got threw E-Mail, and going threw it.

I think Luca is sending me the one in the pic's instead of a packaged up one to be sold seen he sent the manual already.

I'm no pro but love flying, will be honest and "Call it as I see it." threw a common Joe fliers eyes. We get enough hard core smack fliers outlooks. A smack flier can make anything fly good.

I look at price, durability, common Joe fliers flying performance and if the extra $ is worth it for the Common Joe Flier.

Ya, EXI Elev servo locked up after about 2 min's flying. Caused a crash, so my Lynx 275 (stretched 100% scratch build Lynx 300X) review became a "Durability review."

Sunny warm and only 10mph winds tomorrow and Tammy has to work. Next week it's her 5 day off rotation and forecast is a week of rain after tomorrow.

I have been keeping this personal log since 03-16-2013. Now that I'm a Lynx pilot and my 450X is going to be build and stretched with 100% Lynx parts the end has come.

It saddens me that after 45,864 views I have to move.

I love flying, I like the forum, the people are great. I have enjoyed my journey and the people and their support along the way.

"And it Starts Volume 2" is over in the LYNX mini forum if you like following my progress, posts, pics and video's. Here is the link. I will be posting there just as I have here.

Its been a fun ride with you all since before I even had my 450X. Happy Flying. Hope you keep following over there.
