I should have some pictures of my TwinStar II pretty soon. I'm currently building a camera pan/tilt system for it, and it will be ready for some FPV action. It has been upgraded from stock form to now include brushless and lithium polymer power. Two 3 cell 2100 Thunder Power packs in parallel provide the juice, and two 400F brushless motors, two Thunderbird 18 ESC's, and two 6x4 props provide the GO power. And GO it does! The performance is phenomenal in comparison to the stock brushed setup. Can we say unlimited vertical?? Once I get the video gear onboard, it probably will be too heavy for that. But it still has tons of power. Way more than necessary when flying FPV actually. I may prop it down some just to get longer flight times. Which btw, should be somewhere around 25 to 30 minutes.
