Started building the new v-tail frame.
Design is based off a tricopter. I will balance the at the center, then using the battery as a ballast, shift the weight 7% forward to accommodate for the lower thrust in the v-tail.
The front arms will be adjustable. I plan on experimenting with front arm angles to check performance.
Rear arms will be set at 30 degrees
Frame is made from aluminum towel bars and some old aluminum scrap.
I will be using the following electronics
exceed rc rocket 3015 1020kv motors
hk blue 30 amp esc
zippy compact 3300mah 35c 4s battery/ turnigy 3000mah 40c 3s (for video camera)
hobbyking kk 3.0 board (soon to be multiwii lite)
