All for 3 bucks!

Aluminum piece $1.99
Glue we all have some!

That was a great video! However, now I'm hungry. BTW! With the radio off many times the servos will flutter. Now if it flutters with the radio on, then it is probably interference.

It also did it at the park where I shot the 4th of July video! alot more pronounced out there.
I actually started using a new rx and it seems to be better.

I will post more soon. Snow storm today 60 mph gusts! No flying today!!!
I hope it will come down a bit as I really want some shots from up high with snow, and possibly take my kids sledding and film them as they go down the hill!
The winglets on the video you saw were a big help in stabilizing the aircraft, I did not have them on for filming Fields of gold and I could feel the difference, and see it too. My 3 year old thought it was funny to pull white pieces of from from red ones!!!
I am also still working on my design the "SeeBee" see blog/videos...
I have two different size motors and mounts ready, trying to work on the twin version and also an additional mount on top of the wing, pusher or tractor for light weight motor and light weight payload.
Other ap videos were made using the TR800.

It is tracking and behaving like a heavier aircrat, tracked better, felt more solid all around, rather than feeling like you are flying a parachute.
Also remember that i covered the bottom of the wing which improves performance as well.
Post # 1 video 1 and 2.
I am about to redo a new set with a larger winglet surface. I will keep you posted.

Raw, not stabilized. I think the results are as good as any made with more expensive planes. I'd love a tricopter, but not in my budget at the moment.
I am still looking for a large size coaxial heli, which I believe would do the trick.

My yellow Pimped out Slow stick!
Said I had a NIB yellow one, well I started with it.
Millenium gear and parts, yellow of course.
NOW, what Millenium RC does not know is that there is a free camera mount for GOPRO included!!! I'll show you what I am talking about when I put together the build video.
I already plan on using this landing gear for other projects.
I am also making another "Now free" pusher engine mount, 3 blade 9050, a TP 2409 18T of course, 1800 3s and a 500 3s for the lights. Probably I will have this one with a "V"tail, 3 different camera mounts front, side and vertical, as well as 3 meters of LEDS!
Of course I will cover the bottom of the wing like I did on the red one.
Working on new design for winglets.
Stuck at home in the snow, COOL!!!
That's a Pimp Stick!!!:Photos/videos to be posted soon!
