Oh wow, I didn't even notice the 230 either, ha ha, wow you know you have micros if the 230s looks huge next to others lol.
Nice I see you have rail blades on the 180 does Botos have them for the 230s? I have always wanted some of his blades but never cough up the $ for them on my 450.
I like that canopy. I asked somewhere i forget where i asked does anyone know if anyone makes a Goblin style body for the 230s?

Ya the rails are great!

Im not sure if anyone makes a goblin body for the 230 but im sure they will start rolling out soon if they haven't already.

I flew my 200srx once with my blades on like that.. it flew in a very weird manner, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong for ages. Bit like putting your undies on back to front.

I hate to admit this but before I posted this photo I did try to fly it. Surprisingly once it was off the ground in Stability mode the thing was locked in! Now getting it off the ground and making a gents landing was tough. I thought I had really messed something up.

Now I have a ton of photos on my phone on how it is suppose to be together so when I take it apart it's easier to put it together.

half temped to 3D print the form and start vacuum forming bodies/canopies. I just need to get through the holidays then more free for that stuff. I will probably get a canopy for the 270 made before the 230. I've got some air-dry-clay to goof around with.

Flew the 230 with the 270 CFX canopy(grommets moved forward) and it flew pretty great, tiny play in the fit but good. I'll get a video up in a few hours.

Sorry for the high camera angle, first time using my GS6 Edge as a head cam but the quality is better.

LHS had a great deal with 2 extra batteries so I decided to try one more helicopter. Glad I did, I added the Blade 450 3D stock gear because it is a bit wider and taller, added about .75" of clearance below the rear rotor fin.

HH has them in stock now. Part number BLH1503C for $26.99. I found them under the optional accessories for the 230S. Also they are 238mm. No photo on the website yet for some reason. May have to order a set anyhow.

The Zeal 238 might be cheaper or just a could dollars more. Too close to go stock versus Zeal in my opinion. I want to try them out. The plastic stocks are very resistant and work fine though.

I tried the Ares Optim 300 CF blades and they worked great. The same chord as the stock blades and a bit longer. Only reason I don't use them anymore is I crashed with them twice and that was the only time I've bent a main spindle shaft. The plastic blades absorb a ton of the impact.
