Mod'ing the Picoo Z mini helicopter

In the next week or so (once I have all the parts) I'll document a mod that I'll be doing on my Picoo Z helicopter. After a few crashes it's developed a nasty vibration. I picked up some .04" (1MM) carbon fiber rod to use as the rotor shaft and I ordered a set of 1x3x1 MM ball bearings. This mod is documented at the website I mentioned in a previous posting.

The weekend ride went fine, although it was a little windy. In the colder and windy weather this short (~30 mile) ride, with about 1200 ft of climbing, seemed a lot longer.
