Looking good Guy. That will definitely hold up to a little more abuse. It will be interesting to see how isolated your cam is from vibes. Aluminum arms transmit vibes more than wood and other material. I have an aluminum tricopter and it took awhile but I did finally get 95% of the vibes cleaned up on my video. Don't be surprised if you have to do a little tweaking to get some clean video....the tweaking is almost as much fun as flying.

That's a nice frame Guy. Sorry to hear about the problems with the Gaui.

Don't you fancy making a Tri or T copter ? Simple frame and easily replaced if damaged.
