Long time... lots of changes
Wow, it's been a long time. My HBFP/GuruZ upgrade venture never got off the ground. I couldn't find someplace that would make the parts for a reasonable cost.
That was a few years ago, anyway....
At this point, I'm backing out of the hobby. I should have done this a year ago, but I just couldn't do it. I have a number of physical problems that are making it more and more difficult to fly. I thought if I tried RC cars, that would be an OK substitute for flying. It didn't work out so well. I don't have a good place to use them and I really couldn't develop much enthusiasm. Plus the Traxxas Stampede I upgraded to run 3S burns the crap out of my lawn. I had a hard time explaining the twin 2" wide brown stripes in the grass to my wife!
Anyway, I've sold all my quads, cars and most of my helis. I still have a few I'm going to sell, a couple I'll give away. I'd like to keep my Quark and MCPx V2. I'm thinking maybe I will buy a quad that has lots of pilot assists. I am going to build a steam punk quad based on the attached image. I have an old Revell CSS Alabama ship model to use as a basis. It won't fly very fast or do any aerobatics, just cruise.

Best wishes and thank you for all the help given me.
PS The new WL Toys V202 quad has 6 axis stabilization, LED lights, can handle wind, is ultra-micro and costs $55 shipped.

You've also helped me greatly!!
It's only been about 10 months or so.
I joke about when I get older I'll fly full scale..
Airplanes soon but I'll get more daring toward the end and do helicopters.
I do look forward to many more great conversations in the future.
I hope wherever you're at now that it kinda levels off there fore a long time and does not get worse.
Thanks again for all of your help and fun.
I love the quads, actual fun all the others (450s) are nerve wracking still.
I hope to get past that stage soon so I can enjoy flying more.
