I just completed mine and I am temporarily using an AR7000 receiver while waiting for my long overdue AR6100e. DS410s, GP750 w/ DS420, stock plastic blades, motor and ESC. Using an Outrage 860 which weighs 73g, my AUW is a very porky 375g. Not sure why it is so heavy as the receiver can't be adding that much.

Stock motor and ESC with shortened wires and no bullets between the motor and ESC

Kong Power battery

No bling , just functional upgrades (205D carbons, chinese weights ect..)
I find this heli very hard to believe. Do you have pictures of this heli, canopy less. and which Kong Power battery are you using. This is just too good to be true. Sorry I hope I'm not offending you, But I am looking for places for my heli to lose weight, and Jenny Craig has denied it's membership.

Does anyone know of a good cheap gram scale that I could buy at a local home depot or some place like that? I am running on a mechanical 14 ounce scale and would like to step up to the 21 century.

Whats the biggest size lipo we can fit on these things without killing performance or CG? I ordered some 900mah but I'm also seeing some awsome prices on 1050mah. You think that would be too much? Thanks, Joe
