Even though ths blades aren't a polished finish they still fly fine. They both weighed 17.6grams after painting so they gained .4grams each. The green n pink show up nice but the pink is brighter and they work best during lower light. The underside is the blue and translucent silver. The bottom make for a super super bright disc at times!

I'm on Facebook Twitter and YouTube under RCBound! I don't usually have any free time for forum posting! Any spare time is usually spent video editing for YouTube or projects.

That looks amazing! I'm glad it still flies fine. I put a little paint on my rotor blades once and it made it very unbalanced! Great color choice too!

Here's my maiden flight...
Yes, I have forward swash deviation
No, I haven't fixed it
Yes, I will fix it if I can...been too windy recently
I have enough RF7 time spent flying CP helis that freak out on the ground upon spool up and have learned to watch the disc+swash very close. That's why it may appear I have no issue during take off; I knew I needed to compensate already.
YET! She flies very well! It's more of a constant forward flight than any left or right so that's not the worst...but not acceptable. Especially for those more novice pilots out there.
As you can see in the thumbnail, I have switched to EC3 plugs. Simply because I prefer a bullet over a pin style connection.
20 flights in so far before crashing and deciding I've reviewed the DXe enough and the panic "button" isn't for me. I'll be using my Taranis now. I haven't flown in FM0 since flight 4 or 5.
Stay tuned for more videos with some stunts! I think I got my crash filmed too ...oh wait waiting on main gear and not sure if I'll have one by the weekend

Hey that looks just like a mini 360 with the optional FG canopy on. If the blades were painted with the Blade branding you could mistake it for a 360 on a wide shot. I really like that canopy but a Fusuno on HeliDirect costs about the same and also Zeal blades are just a tad more expensive. I don't think that would be the case with the 230 the stocks are plastic so the jump to Zeal should be significant right? I think I saw on a post they have them already for the 230.

I'm actually in business for myself. I do interior and exterior painting. Its is just me though and I stay pretty busy. Couple of times I would be working in a new home before the customers moved in. Plenty of room to fly but i really don't wanna have one of my clients come home while I'm flying a RC heli at their house instead of working. I'll find some free time soon. I've got to work as much as I can so I can start to afford all the spare parts
