It flew great in a hover around the house. I have not seen what it can do in forward flight due to the size of my living room, and the only one else here today that could have filmed it has paws. Any gyms open tonight Mike?

Not sure about the weight as a scale is still on the list of things to buy, but it is far lighter than anything else that I have put together. I flew it outside for a couple of battery packs, and I am pleased with the way it performed. Can't wait to fly it in a gym!

Super light?

Hey steve, do you have any PDF plans for the design?
I was putting together ideas of makeing a "Super" light version.
  • Music wire as wheels ( or skids )
  • Cutting the end servo cases off
  • Cutting the ESC heat shrink covering off
  • switching from JST to mini deans connectors
  • Cutting off servo wires and solder on JST connectors and use an AR6300 Nano
  • Using a 250mah batter rather than a 350


Any other ideas? ive been putting alot of thought into getting a plane as light as possible.
