New project on the bench. Trying out some new build methods, and a new platform for this one.

The body is vac-formed over a Slave I toy I picked up at Toys-r-Us. The frame will be based off of the fabulous bi-copter made by Jason F....Continue Reading

As they said in Contact "Why build one when you can have two at twice the price"

Here is some footage shot in Woodside CA, with two bikes. More footage to follow!

Been working on this concept off and off after seeing somebody convert a Guanli Harrier frame into a quad. It's the same concept as other multirotor hybrids.

I got two of the airframes from hobbyking(http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...80mm_ARF_.html)
I'm using this one as a test bed to get the controller tuned, then I will build up the second airframe with a glassed wings, weapons stations to hide the motors, and retracts.

Running Arducopter for the quad half, then straight pass through of the airplane controls. Right now I just have rudder, elevator, and throttle control in plane mode, and it grooves pretty well with the quad near idle.

First flight of my 106" scratch built Eurofighter yesterday. One of the most fulfilling moments I've gotten out of RC in quite a while.

Looking like a plane now.

Cutting those wings were a major effort, put forth by a good friend. Should be ready to fly in a few more weeks.

Started a build thread over in the pusher jets forums:

100 inches of pink foam and a lot of sanding. Will end up as a twin pusher with vectored thrust.

Micro version of the Parkzone Habu I put together with some 4-site guts. Tried as both a pusher and with a 30mm fan, pusher is much more fun! Plans posted in the micro edf forum.
