New AP heli under construction

The ship is a EP8-QJ mechanical and It is a 500 size machine. My plan is; a single person operation with servo tilt, gravity stabilize roll axis and no pan just rudder control. I have streched it out a little and upgrades the servos to standard size. Hope to keep the weight close to 5lb TOW.

As it sits the new frame is adds 1oz and the sandard servo add 3oz total.

Interesting frame construction. Kinda looks like running boards from the pickup truck?
