Latest upgrades to my little Blade mSR, the most obvious here is the carbon-fibre canopy that has a much nicer shape than the stock shell. Not so obvious is a new main frame (bought impatiently while I wait for my CNC aluminium upgrade).

After several rough landings, I finally bust the tiny plastic spigots that held the battery mount and carbon-fibre skids. No big deal, except that the busted spigots are still inside the other frame and could not be removed (without the ensuing attempt mangling). So, while I wait for the aluminium upgrade, my local hobby store had stock frames available, which means I can get some flying in this weekend. =)

Expect another update with the CF skids on once the replacements arrive.

Detail view of the WIP contraprop - scratch-built. The spinner is a drop tank from an F-18 Hornet, the propeller blades come from different Martin Marauder kits: the front propeller comes from a Matchbox kit, the rear blades come from an Airfix kit. The whole thing actually rotates.

On the fuselage to the right you can see the socket which holds the whole thing in place. The Mitsubishi Zero cowl will be placed on top/around this arrangement, leaving a small gap as an air intake. The cowl will be molded onto the fuselage with lots of putty, though.

A replacement propeller with translucent discs for photo shooting purposes is also on the table.
