 Hi there,

Well this is the mod i have done to my new heli after flying about a week or so.....

I thought to reduce the weight without removing any part off the fuselage...... but by replacing the metal chassis parts with plastic... well i didn't got any carbon fiber sheets with me....... So i did with the plastic plate which my phone sim came with.... smileys-confused-731584

 

And i have use this saw with ultra thin cutting blade..... i don't know what it is called but it is perfect for the job.

 So below is the finished out product......

 i didn't have any scale to measure the weight but it is now considerably less heavier than stock........ now it hovers up with a little bit below half throttle. ssig_cool2

Don't forget that you will have to push the battery a little bit forward to balance up the aircraft........ enjoy guys happydance

Nice work there. A lot of people by now have swapped the frames out with CF, but personally I think plastic like you used works just fine. I have one older 107 (Wonder if the battery's still any good) that I swapped the lower frame with cheap plastic from a chunk of plastic packaging. Worked great, although a little too great, and I could almost never fly it without crashing straight into a wall. Just tap the throttle and ZOOM! It's GONE!

I will agree that the main problem with replacing the top frame is the issue with holding down the motors, as they tend to try to fly upward with the shaft. (Trust me, been there before in the early days. Not fun.) Good luck on figuring that part out, and happy flying!
