Well, when a Man needs more Thrust,,ya go bigger.
I've been given the chance to be on the front lines of building and testing this monster. This build log will cover the build and any information needed.

Motors. 4 Ea. Cobra 3525/14 560KV

Currently I have the arms which I sent out to have Powder coating put on them for some bling, and several other nice things to bling it some for fun. Hey, if your going big,,why not right? After all, this is a hobby and fun!

I'll be using a GoPro2 camera with 2 options. I'll be able to FPV through the Gopro, but I also have a very nice FPV camera and a 800 Mw TX all set up on 900 Mhz tied into a circular polarized antenna with a clover...Continue Reading
