CRC is the importer.
It is available from your local hoobyshop, or online.

could you post a larger picture of that? I have the main idea, but could use a picture to crystalize what I think is going on.

Not a picture but I'm pretty sure the RS is installed vertically instead of flat. I tried this on the left side of the battery initially and didn't quite have the room needed to pull it off. A different body could have possibly allowed it. I'd love to see someone come out with a longer/skinnier speed control because it would enable mounting in a lot more locations.

Thought you fellows might find this interesting. With the servo up front like this, I could run a full size pack with all electronics down the middle. Trust me, it can be done. I arranged the electronics this way because I'm running 13.5 blinky with a shorty pack. I had to make a few slight modifications and run a specific servo to get things to fit like this, but it is interesting to note the possibilities created by running the servo between the front suspension underneath the braces.

What servo did you end up using? I've looked at some of the Micro servos available for the mini helicopters and was wondering which might have enough torque and the correct splines for a proper servo saver.

I think the stock arms are short. You need this brace to run the long arms. CRC also has dual length arms that you can run in the long or short configuration. This is the required brace...

The JR3650 servo fits up front with one mounting bracket removed to clear the front suspension.

Have had my Xi setup this way from the start. Servo lies flat on a separate piece of carbon fiber that spans over the hole for the transponder. Servo can be flipped to either side to your liking.

what castor blocks are you running, and for what class ?
17.5 blinky = do you think it requires 10 deg blocks ? on Med bite carpet
13.5 boosted = do you think going to 5 deg blocks is neccasary ?

castor = all shims back, or split 2 back and 1 up front ?

discuss...

Does anyone know what size standoff I need to replace the plastic ones on the Xi?
