You didn't mention that we include the laminate and extra spars and 4 fins. How many places include the laminate and extra spars??????????

We are looking for sources for the screws. I use the servo screws we didn't use on the servos for the horns on the rudders.

well you show screws in the video builds. just thought it came with them . guess I will just go get some from home dept or hobby store. btw I would have paid a buck or two more for screws lol . just some thing to think about.
ps servo horns packs should come with the screws well at least the ones for the rudders X6 / motor block screws are a different story.

The horns we use don't come with the screws.

We are trying to get sources for more of the small parts.

There are a lot of things that could also be considered:

Gorilla Glue, glue sticks, extreme tape, trim tape, soldering iron, the screws to hold the motor on the mount, prop adapters, razor blades, CA glue, baking soda, even the radio and electronics.

It isn't as simple as it seems.

uh, doesn't come with a motor so why have screws when so many are different.. horns are glued in so there are no screws... this has been the same way since this thread has been started and many are still flying including mine so.... yea...

I found a use for the extra spars and hot glued them into the skid and wing along with using Amazing Goop then hot glued all the way around the skid . that skid is not coming off in a hard landing thats for sure !
I also laminated the skid with extra thick laminate I had laying around instead of the plastic from a two litter bottle.
my wing man is not a very good model even thou it was just his hand lol

my motors both put out 700 watts each a total watage of 1400 watts total thrust is 11.6249 lb with 10x6 props ! on two 4s 40c gen ace 5000mah

I dont like the sun glare the gopro has or how boxie it is .
I have this one http://underbid.com/merchant/tfloutl....html?ref=base it lays flat and the head can tilt with a servo and pan with a servo under it . I did do some mods the the camera head. I also hooked up the zoom to the rc controls.. I would not how ever use it as a main flight cam do to the fact that it will shut off if the SD card is used up or its battery dies. it does have av out . I always use a camera switch as a go between.

Good idea on the dowels in the skid...What is the amp draw of the motors? Your ground clearance running a 10x6 might be an issue

My new battery bays were tested and flew great yesterday. They allowed me to use a variety of size / shape batteries (3S/4S etc) and still nail the CG. I'm using velcro to keep the batteries positioned and a fiberglass spar for strength during potential mishaps. The bays are big but they work great.

You may want to consider a more rigid plastic for the bottom of the skid. It definitely absorbs some abuse and the material needs to be hard as possible due to the constant ground scraping. I'm using some very thin cutting board plastic with great success.
