Innerbreeds 12" Flying Sphere

ok as i mentioned to a few of you i will start a thread on the Sphere drone, here it is.

Id like to thank DiaLFonZo / flyhigh300 for Their supreme support with this project.

The designs have come a long way and so ill start from were we are currently at.

The Material will be cut from 3mm PVC Foam board, (light but strong), and will be powered using a Thunder Power 2100mAh 3-Cell 11.1V LiPo Battery with a Turnigy Park 300 Brushless Outrunner 1600kv motor. (test motor)
It will pose x3 HK401 Heading Hold AVCS Gyros, and x6 Hs-65hb servos.

The Sphere will be 12" in diameter.
These designs are for a 6 control surface setup but the extra surfaces can be added if needed to make 8.
