The mini bug really hit me. Normally I would scratchbuild, but fabricating gets old!

The polakium engineering hex comes in a super simple package and is pretty much a one day build. Being much cheaper than the alternatives, it wasn't a very painful investment.

This one is almost complete. The electronics are being transplanted from my scratchbuilt mini hex. LOS only for now, but this will eventually become an FPV rocket!

I need to add some epoxy to my PDB and do some more wire cleanup, but This seems to be coming along quite nicely!

Spider Mini Hexacopter on 4s:
Spider Mini Hexacopter on 4s (1 min 21 sec)

Figured I'd log this one. My last flight before losing signal on my mini spider hexacopter. I give up on flysky. Too many signal loss issues in due to crowded wifi.

Waiting on a new battery. As fast as it is, it flies like and old Cadillac with the 3300 4s.

Keeping it short.

V-tail 2.0 Second flight. (3 min 21 sec)

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)

RCtimer 10x5e CF props

Finally Rebuilding my tricopter-turned v-tail quadcopter. It flew well, but the many crashes are beginning to take their toll.

As shown in the photos, this is the progression of the frame I built. Will update with more specs soon
