Heres a challenge - three quads at once

Two are spec builds for flyers who want to get on and fly, and one for me.

One will be standard KiwiRC Blue 600 , two are going a different way, as camera platforms.

Two are running Minsoo Kim boards and XX_Quad_1.5 software , mine is running the KKuK board designed , built, won from , David at RCEplorer

Quad # 1 we will call "Ivan"
Quad # 2 we will call "Tim"
Quad # 3 we will call "Mat"

Using the SPA3D as a base ( and adding a Yak 54 profile fuselage, based on the 36" Gene Bond design and scaling up 30%, you get this big, heavy monster. Weight is looking like 2kg, and about 720 watt setup.

Will get the drill out later and lighten the Ally U-channel

I Should end up with a good general pupose bash-around fun flyer

Heres the start of my new Pizza Box Flyer.

Dubbed 'Overkill" as it is way over built, ally U channel backbone, ally angle for motor mount (700 watts), and 1" flat bar for landing gear, will slim it down a bit with some drill holes.

Rudder is balanced (50% over/under wing) so should rudder turn better than my first PBF !
