NOTE: I’m likely to have made lots of mistakes, so please send me any corrections to this information.

Page under development

I’m keen to collect together, in one easily-accessible place, all the factory and after-market modifications for the Shadow and Streak series, together with any other useful upgrades.

If you wish to freely share any modifications or upgrades that you have designed,
then please contact Fly Micro  to discuss what you are able to offer to the Shadow owner’s community.
I will then upload your drawings, instructions and approval paperwork for non-commercial use, with appropriate acknowledgement.

Alternatively for modifications and upgrades that are commercially available, I can upload a brief description, approximate cost & time-frame, plus your contact details.
