Yep - The arms are bolted to the bottom frame. The 4mm ply itself is flexing - so I am going to have to glue another one to it to stiffen it, or make a new one out of thicker ply!!

There is NO problem lifting the weight - just too much flex. But I will fix that. It will mean I should be able to increase my Gyro sensitivity and make it more stable.

I will post some video soon of just how stable these things are. Trouble is... nose in for me is a NIGHTMARE!! Just like my Blade400... I lose orientation and have to spin the tail around real quick or I will crash.

At least it would be easy to fix.
