Best,

Yeah still working out the bugs on this one. Might not work at all but what the heck right??? Here is what she looks like and the motor mounts. I used the old tail servo mounts for the 4G6 and mounted a set of MiniCP landing skids to the battery tray.

Hi Darryl,
Good luck! Hope it works better than the BL ufo#8. We found [aside from no props] that a lower kv motor [4000-5000] was needed. The gyro induced an over compensation occillation. ..and the gyro gain wouldn't go low enough to stop it.

regards,
Bill

I love the durability of these little guys!
I'd have to buy a Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSM2™

Oversky has a new motor listed on their site which would probably perfect for the ladybug. Its a hp03 meant for a conversion for a heli tail. They have newer kv motors. Problem is expense. If I was doing the swap I think I would use the hobbyking 5gr motors here http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_2000kv.html they would probably slide into the stock motor cage.

If weight is the issue then check out this one http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_7700kv.html

I tried even longer booms today. I installed a better light setup, as well, having received some more lights from OnceAfly. (He made about 30 of them for me. I really don't know where that guy gets gis patience from... But I appreciate his help. I couldn't do it. The soldering points are so tiny! )






The word is: Much better recovery with the longer booms. Still flips easily, but doesn't shake as much on the recovery, basically. The downside is I'm feeling the weight now. Less lift. less punch and about 30% less flight time. Mind you, I also added heatshrink to all 4 booms in an attempt to make the booms stronger. No good. The extra weight isn't worth it. I split one boom on my first hard crash despite the heatshrink. And it wasn't that hard of a crash. The next time, I will not use heatshrink. Instead, I will fill the hollow with CA glue. I realize this will seize the motor mounts and the booms together and I will have to replace the whole boom assembly if they break, but I don't care. These things break too easily.

Sorry, I don't have a stock bug for size comparison anymore. My wife didn't like it so I sold it. I shipped it to Spain yesterday.

The good thing is I have now tested too long (The above pictured), and too short (stock booms). So now I know what to shoot for the next time. I need to go about 6mm. shorter than the above and it will be the optimum length, I believe.

Dang Chris good expermientation.

Im still having fun with my LB I just havent been doing much flying lately. The weather has been nice and now I have my modded mountain bike out and have been hitting the trails a lot. Putting a lot of CNC parts on the bike eats into the RC money.

Speaking of flying the LB I think ill go outside right now and pop it up into the air.
