I dont crash often at all, but it still happens. And since the web special is going to be powered by a 7 turn motor, I want it to be bulletproof

oh, crap! that's costly...

i'm sure it will save you $$$ in the long run...built like a tank and strong like bull...

how you get the edges so rounded like that? you sand it down by hand?

Yup, it was all sanded by hand, took a little while that way, but there is no seam at all

Yes, I bonded 2 of the R2 towers together, then sanded them down to be as close to 1 tower as you can get.
