Build Discussion: Peace Done with modifications

Ed over at Experimental Airlines has a concept called the Peace Drone that seemed pretty nifty:

FPV Peace Drone v2 (13 min 53 sec)


I did some divergences from his original concept, including:
* twin engines (to reduce prop problems on landing)
* rudder (to give more control on landing)

I was able to do these mods without endangering the core principles of it (cheap, collapsible).

You can see the results in the attached pic. I haven't maidened it yet, and would be curious to hear advice and counsel.


A part of this build was developing a retractable camera system for my GoPro. You can see the engine test and retract here:
