You can get the Squid from Chris for sure, but please know it does cost more!!

More labor intensive, but well worth it. I haven't shown you guys the outside video yet.......

Justin,

I used to live in Clarksville, and it is beautiful where you live compared to where I am now! I'm stuck in the oil patch that I grew up in. No trees, no hills, no mountains, no water (rain/snow/standing/running or otherwise), hell, no grass....well, i'm sure some grass but not the kind you walk on or fly over....lol. I miss TN.

But remember, you promised us
You didn't specifically answer my other question. Which frame flies better the CNC355 or the aluminum version? If I were to get one which one? Secondly, I want to fly smooth and learn to control hovering. Should I go with 450 size?
Thanks!

True. I guess it could be worse. I've got friends that live in Clarksville. Army brats from Fort Campbell. I do love the hills of Tennessee. Nice scenery, just not much snow in middle Tennessee. My friends up north have all the fun.

I have been having some problems with orientation on my m356 quad so I made some slight modifications that will hopefully help me out. I also borrowed a go pro from work to shoot some video. Name: uploadfromtaptalk1357050099405.jpg

Sorry guys, no time to post replies now. I'm off to watch a movie and off to bed early as I work tomorrow.

Just a quick announcement. As promised, the orders I said would ship this Friday will be in the mail and other orders after that were told there would be a longer turn around time because I will have the parts on January 10th. I'll do my best to have the orders prepared so that everything is ready when the metal parts arrive. Things like flasing and shrinking ESCs, preparing the boxes for shipping, writing labels, coating and drilling the M frames, etc. So things should be smooth and should ship shortly after the 10th of this month.

That said, I am now closing for orders until January 10th. Not taking any more orders until the parts are ready because I hate feeling overwhelmed with too many orders. This is still a lot more of a hobby for me than it is a business and I want to keep it fun and enjoyable.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and I'll be ready to accept more orders in 10 days from now. As for the next 10 days, I will enjoy some much deserved time off and I will be working on a FPV design. Designing is what I enjoy the most (after flying), so it should be a fun time for me in the next week or so.

Ben,
I will be back here to show some drawings and ask for some feedback regarding the FPV design.

Best,
Chris

Soo .. who's up for some snow flying
When I was flying a couple days ago I was doing a long vertical descent back down through the trees and had some pretty severe looking wash to contend with. It sounded like the blades were really struggling and were pulsing to maintain stability and control. The great part is, having done this many times with the V929, the result was impressive. On the camera later I didn't even notice.

Did someone say snow flying? I'm in, but only because I have to!

Man o man Bryan, I like those extended arms on the bottom row 2nd pic from the left. Is that the secret weapon? You need to send that one to me for testing in a VERY dry environment.

Thank you but you would have to talk with Chris on that. Are you talking about the quad with the "bent" arms? That's the Squid. I am testing it all this week. Video coming soon.

Cant wait to see the results, I've been messing around with my cnc 355 for fpv as of late, if this shows promise I would love to utilize it for a dedicated fpv rig.
