Most people who attend the NEAT Fair are familiar with the annual night flying contest. Last year, I didn't participate much since a mid-air took out my Slow Stick early! It won't happen again...

Just finished my Tricopter, with much help from the pictures and guide on I'm using the same basic design and electronics, with the exception of some Turnigy 1050kv outrunners instead of the AXN motors. It's built from basswood and G10 fiberglass I cut with a CNC mill. FPV gear to be installed soon!

Here are some pictures of the Komet I designed for Plantraco. I've never really posted them anywhere, and thought that I'd share. See for more information.
