Build a 450 Sized Helicopter for Under a $100 - Hausler

Hausler 450 V2 RC Helicopter
No you didn't read that incorrectly, I built a good quality metal head and tail, carbon fiber chassis Trex 450 clone helicopter for under a hundred dollars. This particular kit is a Hausler Version 2 Belt drive metal head and tail kit. I used a few of my own parts from flying remote control airplanes and bought several more using a mixture of Amazon and eBay to get the price down to what is a pretty affordable 450 class helicopter. Considering its non-clone equivalent is over $500 this sounds like it should be a fun build.
