Lol...here is what mine look like right now...all squished down. Not sure if my rig is that much heavier, or the zipties are too thin, or too short. Crezzee...any comments?

Sia, I used Truly massive Zip/cable ties, industrial ones that are the same width as the arm (about 10mm). The ones you have used don't look that phat, go get a handful of monster ties.
I have flown my tricopter quite a bit now and the cable ties are still perfect.
My mate tried to loop his tri and it kissed the weeds big time, it went in flat out inverted and the only thing it broke was a few cable ties, a prop and a broken kk board. Total crash cost about $18 including postage to the UK.
