This is my second UFO build with a 1000lm LED tractor beam I cycle on and off with my transmitter.

If anyone is interested, in the maiden video of my second UFO, I put build photos. This is how I built both of these with the exception of the frame and booms were inside the fuselage on UFO 1 and underneath on UFO 2. My next will be like my first one with the frame and motor booms above the bottom of the fuselage and will be a larger one to support 10" props.

Cool.

I liked them both. Very cool. Keep us posted. I have a DJI 450 I want to make a saucer form for. Also bought some HK lights for it. Yours look just great in the air.

Hi Stringfly, Thanks! One thing I can tell you is, if you do make a UFO fuselage for you DJI, you will need to increase the gains 30% to 50% higher (pitch and roll) than they are currently. This aircraft is inherently more unstable but can be stabilized by increasing the gains. All the best and Happy flying!
