Quad Addict Acrylic Sport Frames

So I have been having a blast with this little frame from Quad_Addict. Anyway, I wanted to see if anyone else was enjoying this one as much as I am. I'm not going to lie to you here, QA's actually a bud of mine, you can see that by searching the posts here on RCG. So I'm not baiting anything here. If you know me in person as some of you that are active in Multirotor do, you know that's not what this is about. So, knowing him aside, this is literally one of my favorite frames so far for sport flying. One of the main reasons is for aerobatic practice. It can take a serious beating and always comes back up without a scratch. I have hammered it into the ground (dirt, grass, no concrete although that may happen soon), my RC trailer, 2 trees, our deck, the grill, etc. I've sharpened the hell out of my quad aerobatic flying skills in the process. I was trying to link 2 flips the other afternoons and hit the ground so hard that I drove a motor shaft out... But the little frame was OK... So I created this thread because I was hoping other folks could share their setups as well. I think that helps a lot when people are messing with new setups, etc. Also, if you use a CopterControl board, I will share my settings if you ask. This one was tricky because of the small arm size and powerful Keda motors. But I have it nailed down pretty well for this setup. (I'll post pics of mine later this evening). Mine is actually G10, but the acrylic should be even tougher.

Not EVERY time. That's why it't hard to troubleshoot. guess I should have included some successful flips as well. I'll do another one today and put it up when I get time.

These frames are great. I have one powered by a HF sport board with sonar and it flys perfect.

Don't. Already tested it. Not near agile enough. The CopterControl is perfection in this thing. I'll post those settings in a little bit. That quad is out in the trailer. I got home very late last night because of all the traffic caused by the accidents on I-75.
