Default 470L speed fuselage

heres a few pics of the speed fuselage for the 470L.



Putting the cover over the tail was everything except easy
I had to completely remove the tailboom to fix the tail end to the fiberglass boom and then pushing the tailrod guide back into position was a nightmare,and you have to put the fbl in pos #2 under the maingear.
other than that it looks really good

The speed fuse makes the heli look very nice. I've wanted one for quite a while now, but know I would destroy such a good looking bird in short order. Very nice heli, thanks for posting it up.

You don't have to put the gyro below.....not with a few minutes of dremel work.

It looks good but how does it fly with the fuse installed? Asking because the 450l flew terrible with a full fuse.

It definitely feels heavier in the air. I don't fly stick banging 3D, so it fits my style anyway.

In backwards inverted it feels much more naturally locked in and smooth. It has a different sound to the model now.

I'll fly it for a while, then go back to a pod and boom....that or I might just build another for better 3D.

Its much easier to see in the air...and lets be honest....looks sweet.
