Update 3/2/13: Latest re-incarnation!

I've been flying this little bad boy since Dec 2009. It started out as plain flybarred 250, and the attached pics with the green canopy and fin is the latest setup. My goal was to lighten it up and simplify it as much as I could.

    Thanks for the offer, but it is not for sale. Took me awhile to build it up, and at this moment, I don't have the time to build up another one.

    very nice setup,

    i am curious as to the side braces? cant seem to find them, you list Microheli CNC side braces (from MH FBL head kit) link? is this what was used to support the back side frame so the SK720 can fit in?

    thanks

    Yes. The side braces are not sold seperately, and thus are only available with the flybarless head assembly....$35.95 USD
