Wow look how clean it looks! That won't last too long :-D my first multi was an F450 they are great for learning on and replacement parts are easy to Come by, but don't be afraid to buy clone arms is stocks aren't readily available some of them are actually better than stock and much cheaper too! Say goodbye to your cars for a while tho they are a blast and gateway to fpv and acrobatic quads :-D

Soo voo2doo get the bugs worked out??
Yes mate,all done.It's easy when you know how to do it but it's just knowing.I had a friend call up (Barry) and he has been into Heli's since our lord!:w00t: so with a few of his magic actions here is the result.I wasn't flying this as I have never really flown before so Barry was flying it to show me whats what.

Big thanks to Barry!
