Default Direct CCPM XL V3 450 conversion.

This was formerly an HDE frame. I've built it all now from spare parts etc. My own servo layout. Flies great.
Bat tray is going to move forward about 1".

Tinman, yep sure did, painters masking tape and cans of paint. I can get the name/type if you need. I still need to clean the canopy and apply clearcoat, just waiting for the paint to cure a bit more so my cleaner doesn't take the paint off

bah your CX looks fine, Figure it took me almost 2 weeks to paint mine and $5 per can paint ..I'm not very good but one tip is to not worry how it looks when painting. Paint always looks a bit different when it dries. Take your time and paint several light coats rather than one or two big coats. Allow each coat to dry overnight before applying the next coat and always wipe the canopy down before painting with a solvent that won't affect teh paint or materials. I use rubbing alc. on a paper towel.

Default Trex 600 night flyer

Here is my Trex 600, set up for some night flying.
For now, it only has 2 flights on it, haven't had a chance to play around with ratios yet. Too cold out here.
However, with the FP4900 6S batteries, the performance is outstanding, and I just might stick with the 10 tooth pinion.

my mix between the HDX450se (helidirects trex) and my trex.
I decided to start working with the airbrush I have...slight problems. haha, but came out kinda looking like a sparkly dinosaur. Was fun nonetheless, and looks much better while flying
