Vectored-VPP Pics here !!!! Mamo/AXI !!!!

Hey guys, I am in the process of building "my first" successful VPP plane and was hoping we could all post comments with build pics, I know there is a bunch of scattered stuff here but if we could contain it to this thread it would be very helpful to all who are only interested in this system and its mechanics.! I currently will be using the axi2203/40 and mamo and will eventually like to do a vectored system, so please post pics here with any comments to help each other!!
Thanks
John

Also I did a cool motor mount design that is in the process of getting laser cut and if I do a sheet of them would anyone be interested in a cool easy to use mount!! I will post pics when I get it in my hands!

I just finished the final design for my ECHO 3D and hope to get it under 160 gram RTF!! I will post some pics as soon as my camera is done charging, I have the airframe painted and built and all the other electronics are on except the motor and mamo system! I should have the custom motor mount this week from the laser guys!! I just weighed it in at 94.6 grams so far and the mamo with D47 servo is 15.6, the AXI with P10 is 26.4 grams and 2 cell lipo 21 grams, I should be close!!!

Yes I am. I'm using the the Hacker 20-34s with 8in blades. The plane still turned out at around 6.7oz though :S. There's not nearly enough power on 2s so I'm using a 3s right now. I'm also thinking about making a thrust vectoring too because regular VPP is starting to bore me haha! You got any pics of the mount by any chance? Thank you

Hey Pat!
I have a local guy with a laser cutter doing them for me, I will offer them up here for a small price!! They will be made of G10/FR4 and are designed for a direct servo install!!
