Xavier - Can you update your M24 with the noise reduction configuration Tyger is referring too?

I have only been buying the fixed wing aircraft that are built with metal frame rather than the fiberglass fuselage since it’s possible to repair the fixed wing aircraft built with metal frames at more reasonable cost. The fiberglass ones are not easily fixed... Problem with gyros if you tip them with rotor spinning it’s almost Like buying new to repair it. Wonder if the manufactures could add anti-tip rods or extend the landing gear out wider to make less likely to tip in some of these scenarios? Sportcopter’s design is less likely to tip with the castering front wheel and suspension.
The really wide wheelbase on the Xenon gives it tremendous stability on the ground.

AND... dare I say a very real Helicopter in flight experience! I hear them asking Greg how do you know....because Im a Helicopter Pilot and IMO the Xenon is the closest thing to a R44 in flight at a fraction of the cost, easy to work on nice cabin and with a ANR headsets its the bom ...se' maar net
