thanks for the warning.
I actually she was in another room, she just talks load. in each of those videos she is not in the same room where the copter is being tested.

Curious, because its a very cool looking V-Tail
with the way the weather has been I have not been able to do much. I was think of putting an APM2.6 board on it, if I do get it sorted out and tune will sure to post.

Very nice, i like the custom canopy and it's even better at night with the lights.
How stiffer is your setup with the bars from the front arms to the back ?

No, it's a cf arrow cut up, I found it to be considerably lighter and stronger than any cf tube I could find. As for versions there were many but this showed to be the simplest most effective geomitry.
