Default 130x Mods?

Woohoo!!!

Going out to the hobby shop to finally buy my own 130x instead of flying customers' 130's

My first thought of a mod would be to extend the tail on it. It holds fine the way it is, but extending it a bit further would make the whole heli look a bit more in proportion, and will allow the use of longer blades!

What do you guys think of that?

I'll try it out for sure.

um, I can't tell if your serious or just trying to be funny. This heli has a TT in the tail, so you would have to "extend" that as well as the tail pitch pushrod...

Yea, I'm being serious. It isnt that hard to extend the tail on such a heli. All you need is a longer hollow square carbon boom, a longer torque tube, and a longer pushrod.

I don't know that the motor/esc could handle more disc size.

That is a good point. But I'm sure there will be more mods with stronger motors in the near future!

I am trying to spearhead the effort for motor/esc mods, but I have to say Im worried about putting a lot more power to the tail till it proves it is robust.
