Any reason the rear motors are not pushers?

Going to build a V-tail one day, just asking....

Was that one for me? If so, motor clearance. Most Vtails would hit the v support or opposing blade. I have some room to play and if I flip them then I have landing gear issues.

That seems to be the reason for most, blade clearance....

Co2x: I was so taken by your pvc vtail video I converted my Tornado Frames Whirlwind 600 to a substantially identical configuration. Flies great and looks very cool. I have 5 or 6 flights on it so far, several of which were in ridiculously high wind, and it took it just fine. It's not PVC, but if anyone wants to see a pix, I can provide one.

Frank,
I'm really glad the conversion was successful and you are happy with it.
This is a PVC Thread but, it should be fine for GORDOSOAR if you will post a couple of pix in here....and maybe a short flight video.

OK...you asked for it. I'll keep it to one image so as to not pollute the purpose of the thread. I think the point is not so much what material you make this design out of...it's the fact that it looks (and is) unique at the flying field, and is a very competent flyer! We're really knocking on the door of a four motor "tri" with this design. The yaw authority is legendary!!!!!! Arguably, you could bring the motors as close as the props will allow. Then you really would have the functional equivalent of a servo-less tricopter.

The conversion you see here required drilling only four holes. Enjoy!

It's pouring rain here in the N.E. USA. It'll have to wait until the week-end. Sorry.

No sir. It is a Tornado Frames Whirlwind 600 that I re-configured as you see it here. The kit comes as a V-tail - that part I had nothing to do with. I just clamped in the rear arms a bit and brought the forward arms back. If you look closely you can see the holes in the top deck where the bolts were formerly.
