fined airframe's rotor blades are longer by 700 mm/27.56 inches (with structural arms longer by 1m/3.28 ft). The blades and outboard sections are now made of semisolid foam shell to help maintain airfoil shape during flight. Further, the cockpit now allows more pilot arm flexion to increase the available power. The powertrain has a stiffer chain and modified tensioners that smooth power transfer.
