Hi Hans
Yep, I've sent a dozen PM's to various moderators on adding to the poll but no response. However do look at the ad-ons immediately below the poll. ARM-o-Kopter is there. I will add you by your request.
Cheers,
Jim

Gents,
I got an answer yesterday from the tech moderator Mike Koesnikov about having the ability to add quads to the poll. Here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1095720 So it looks like it is in the not allowed category. An idea I'm mulling is adding or linking to the poll and displaying results here. In the meantime I will continue to add manually by posting count any new additions.
Cheers,
Jim

Still no TT-Copter ...

If it is missing many projects the poll is not really making sense for people that just come by and take a quick look. It would even be better to remove it completely and only have one collecting post containing all copters I think ...

Hi Tobias,
It is in the manual adds below the poll. I am updating by the posting count. Not too many TT-Copter fliers have posted...total now 3...and one of those bought it from the other gent...
Can you tell me what projects are missing that are not in the links below the poll? That would be helpful too
Cheers,
Jim

Ken,
Unfortunately as you can see by the tech mod that posted that cannot be done...so he says anyway... And now it appears that you can't stop the poll without stopping the thread, so it would have to completely start all over again. I might have to do that so if there are any other projects out there that Tobias mentioned that are not in the list, please post them here so I can add them.
Cheers,
Jim

Is there a thread to point to? BTW, The poll count is not intended to show how many of one type that you might have, only the board types you own. So even I can't count all the quads of the same type that I own The real problem besides not being able to add models to the poll is that if later you get another model, it will not let you post that if you have already posted, even though it initially is multiple choice. It is a limiting factor to the way they designed the poll...

That's one of the problems with "half a poll" ... most people probably don't want to write an extra message to someone to be added to some list ... but clicking on a button is easy.

With the missing projects I only meant the poll itself.

Tobias,
True. But if only they would at least post a "howdy message", it would stay near the top of the multi-rotor thread list so folks could find it even easier If there is still no way to add models to the poll by the New Year, I will re-launch the thread and the poll with the quads/tri's I've been adding manually. So anyone else out there who knows of a quad or a tri that needs to be added, please let me know!
Thanks and Cheers,
Jim

To save yourself some work, instead of closing this thread, perhaps start a new thread with a poll that just has the missing quads/tris in it.
Then on the first page of this thread give a link to that thread with a list of the quads/tris that are in it. Breaking it up might make it easier to read also since the list is quite long.

Something like...

(Link to additional poll thread)
ARM-O-Kopter
BigQuadro
Conrad Quadrocopter 450
QuadroControl
TT-Copter
Shrediquette - a tricopter by William Thielicke
Six motor Mikrokopter-3
Simple quad by Kapteinkuk
Signguy's Tricopter build
Octo-Mikrokopter
Paparazzi Booz Quad
Twelve motor MK
Xaircraft X500D
Xaircraft X600D (X500D-V2)-0
Xaircraft X650D-0

Good idea RC! I'll add this to my list of options of things to try. A good interim fix!
