Default New crutch design revealed

Ive made a different crutch design for my helicopter, mainly to adapt a Cobra body to the LMH helicopter. I ended up with more than expected. The helicopter is very much more stable. Not only that, my fuselages fit better on the new design also. There is more rotor to fuselage clearance. Also boom strikes are alot less likely to happen in a minor bounce. You can check out pics at my website.

For what it's worth, the photo for "Tailfin mounted " on your "Modification" page has been replaced with a duplicate picture of the new crutch. The picture has been resized (probably by my browser).

Nice work! Any idea how this will affect the Corona crutch?

Thanks for letting me know Mondomor, I got it fixed. About selling the crutch or posting the templates: Im not sure as of yet. Its probably more work involved for me if I started making crutches. Some people may want to buy the crutch because they may not have the equipment to cut one out or be bothered with cutting them out. I have all the equipment to cut them out but not sure about the extra time needed to do so. I guess I would have to get some feedback on what people would perfer. As far as one for the electric crutch, I havent did a crutch design for that yet.
