Very nice- I like it. I can see where the fore/ aft CG would have to be set pretty carefully on this type of design.

SPAD Quad

When the quad bug bit me, I wanted to do something different and decided to give it a try using SPAD building methods. First one was named the "correXcopter" which was a 100% SPAD frame with 4mm triangular coro booms and 6mm plates in the middle. Being a first timer, couldnt do much at the "flying your quad" side. Mean time saw the flitetest clip of Hcopter. Next up was to build the "cooreHcopter" . Though crashed many times, got used to it and am in love with these bugs now. Pics and videos below.

Thanks Mortimer. I got the idea from the H-frame and
adjusted the lenght to make it as compact as possible.

JEGO88 Your quad looks nice and compact. I would maybe try and go a step further and make the landing gear foldable somehow?
