somewhat o/t but....... after building and flying dozens of nut balls i am a firm believer in rounds. thanks to some comments here i built a piyak .............. wow, although i have loved the n/b , the piyak is the next level . if u have the n/b mastered and want a bit (lot!) more of a challenge i highly recommend u guys look into this one.

i first built mine a couple of years ? ago and after flying it just a bit shelved it because i was not willing to go through the learning curve when the n/b was so easy and fun . i recently revisited the piyak and made myself go through the work (and props ) to learn to fly it ....... well somewhat anyway ........ the fun being how much more capable it is than i am. if u have ever wanted to truly master rudder this is a low stress way to do it.

just 1 of many and not my video ...........but i can hover it and torque rolls are awesome!!!


thanks to g/g for the tip and to aeronot for the design
