This[^] is a Blade MCPX. Don't let its size and plain appearance fool you. It's a real little helicopter that can take a few crashes and is therefore ideal for learning how to fly.

But it's really not much to look at. Now, what if I remove everything that's not needed and install the rest in a more interesting hull? One like this.[^] Yes, I know that's a regular model kit. We will have to make some modifications, but it could work. At least should a Huey at 1:48 scale have enough room to install everything and it looks promising.[^]

And this[^] is how far I got today: The hull from the model kit is glued together and primed, but not yet sanded. The Blade's chassis has been installed inside and fits, but I had to cut out parts of the roof to make room for the larger swashplate. I had to break the tail boom assembly when I took it off. The tail motor is now installed in the model, but the wires still have to be routed to the front and again attached to the circuit board.

Provided I get the tail motor functional again, find a good place for the battery and manage to get it trimmed, then it may actually fly. How are my odds?
