Nice!

Any plans to go with a 5-blade head?

Been keeping an eye out for one these when they get some back in stock.

I have a lightening 5 bladed head and TF models 700 mm scale blades but had a LOT of problems. I'm not sure if it was the head or the blades. I'll get back to it at the end of the seasson.

The only gotcha I found was that the glue that held the floor and formers seemed brittle. I went over it with some epo grip epoxy. I've found that to be common on a lot of the standoff scale fuses.
other than that I have to say it was the easyest build I've ever done. With four doors that open and the size of the fuse you can get at everything. i could get use to that LOL.

I'm running a streched chaos 600 with a 12S power setup. works great for scale cost less.
