It's funny you should mention indoor flying Allan, I was planning to give it a test hover in the hall at Llysfaen, just like I did with my old Trex 500 Smile

Right, links. Trex 700 LE super combo from Fastlad: http://www.fast-lad.co.uk/store/t-rex_nitro_limited_edition_kx018005_stock-p-7884.html
Helibug RC conversion set for Zenoah G230rc to g270rc engines (or CY clones): http://www.helibug.com/HB7rc.htm
And the engine was a CY 29cc jobby from Rossendale models EBay outlet.

The only thing I think I need to do something about now, is the stock exhaust. I think it is going to be a bit loud/rubbish, so I'm looking into something that will be uber-quiet, without destroying the performance ofthe engine.

Weight wise, the petrol gubbins will add about 1kg to the all up weight (ove the glow engine equivalent). Lots of people will moan about that, but as I don't intend to fly extreme 3D with it, it isn't an issue. The 40 minute flight time from a tank of petrol will more than make up for it Smile
