Looks good! I like the canopy! Carbon Fibre is a little pricey for these things, but there's a few main frame sets out there. Somebody posted ones he was making a long whole ago. Might be worth it to look into plastic/polystyrene before deciding to use carbon fibre.
Also, I don't know what you did to make the blades black, probably spray paint, but spray painting them can cause a few minor problems with balance and aerodynamics. I use a black sharpie or chisel tip permanent marker, which doesn't provide perfect black, but looks good at x hundred rpm. If you want to protect the black finish on the edges, and not end up with black marks all over your walls, what I do is take the really cheap garbage "invisable tape" (we all know that's a lie! It's far from invisable, and it doesn't tape anything!) and measure it out to the same length on all of the blades. (from the tip to the rounded part begins near where it mounts to the heli) The tape takes the brunt of the force from whacking it into stuff, and gets ripped up instead of the blades. After I started doing that, I've cut WAY down on how many blades I've had to replace, even with crashing and letting my friend fly the s102.
Carbon fiber parts are not all that expensive if your willing to fabricate them yourself. I use this:
I just bought some tube from them for my WL-v911 to reinforce the frame.
Amazon has a nice set of black replacement parts but with shipping it is kind of expensive but it is up to you what it is worth to see your heli looking awesome.
