Question New style lower frame for the MD7/8 ?

I was watching some YouTube and I found these interesting videos . They show a really nice and substantially different lower frame for the MD7/8 . I'm not sure if it's just a one-off or possibly something else . What do you think of'em ?

A few years ago one of the dealers posted about making new lower frames so stick packs could be used. I never actually saw them for sale but this looks like a factory upgrade. I wouldn't switch at this point since I have quick release trays but it does look nice.

Is this the one you mentioned ?

I agree it looks real nice . It does look like you would be forced to load the batteries from the front . I wonder if that also means you would need to remove the stock bottom plate and use quick release plates instead ?

Ya that is the one, I thought it was Steves but couldn't remember for sure. He was shipping parts to the US for guys after the original US distributer showed his true colors by taking money but delivering nothing. Matt had a lot to overcome after he got the US distributership but he has done a wonderful job with parts and support.

Definitely , Matt has overcome a lot and done a superb job . The issues weren't his fault to begin with . I remember the debacle with the old dealer . Luckily I wasn't part of it as I obtained my MD8 right around the time when Matt had taken over . However I read every single MD thread on HF , RR and RCG and I got a pretty good idea of what had transpired in that period .

What the new lower frames and front loading battery tray are for is the SP version on the MD models.

we have the SP versions of the 500, 550 and 600 in stock, but are awaiting photos from the MD factory before we get them on the website. For the 700/800, the frames are still under testing, but once available, we will be getting them and the new battery trays in stock as well.

No problem

For the 700/800 is appears it's only the frames and battery tray that are different too, so not much change in order to convert existing models over to the SP.

Canopy, boom supports and minor frame modification. So not much.
