    Alrighty, check this out ladies & gents.

    The Neo Cage, manufactured by Charlie at 3DME in Western Australia.
    Consist of a top & bottom plate, two plastic standoff's and two screws.
    The bottom plate is double sided taped to the heli, and the Neo is held between the top & bottom plate.
    The rear standoff acts as a servo cable retainer.

    So far Charlie has around 50 flights and counting. No increased vibration or any other issues to date.
    I will be fitting mine this weekend on the Logo 700 to bang out a heap of test flights.

      FYI: I checked the vibration of my Logo 700 on the bench no blades before and after fitting the Cage - no increase whatsoever.

      When you think about the Cage is an extension of the plastic case, with double sided tape between the Cage and heli instead of between the plastic case and heli.
      The Cage to Neo connection is rigid, but the Cage to heli connection is dampened with the same DS tape as before.

      And no static effecting the Neo thru the Cage. My logo 700 definitely has static, but with earthing wire the Cage basically becomes a faraday cage ;)
