So, I did another quad using 6mm CF square tubing notched like my Stick Simple/Woodie layout. It was okay, but the real advantage came after I added epoxy to the corners to stiffen everything up. I just put another five minutes on this thing and it works well enough that I almost think it almost has almost enough oofta to almost be almost competitive in 250 Race. (Of course, I actually know better.)

Specs:
245 rotor-to-rotor
Turnigy 1811-2000 motors
Turnigy Plush 6A ESCs
MultiWii
Nano-tech 850 3S 25C
CF square tubing, strengthened with JB Weld and microballoons for the corners
165 grams dry -- not bad!

Later:

Okay, I'm officially done with MultiWii flight control boards. This is the third one that has stopped working after a few not-too-hard crashes. Why is it that the KK2 board handles crashes just fine but the MultiWii gives up the ghost? Whatever.
