I think I enjoy the building as much as the flying and even the frustration of the troubleshooting to get the thing working is great when you actually do work it out .

So the next project is a much smaller Quad . The rationale is -lighter, smaller, more agile and simpler,so I can start to practice aerobatics with less risk of damage.

A simple carbon fibre frame , with a Jussi v1.1 board and probably WMP only

My proposed specification is
Frame Mugi carbon fibre 12x2mm/25.4x.8mm http://www.mugi.co.uk/shop_product.php?id=441
ESC 6A Hobbywing Pentium http://www.giantcod.co.uk/hobbywing-...-p-403184.html
Motors GC 1406 Micro http://www.giantcod.co.uk/1406n-micr...-p-405246.html
Props 5x3 CW/CCW http://aeronautikhobby.com/epages/Ba...8&Currency=EUR
TX Frsky V8FT Tx Module http://www.giantcod.co.uk/frsky-v8ft...-p-405313.html
Rx V8 http://www.giantcod.co.uk/24ghz-frsk...-p-405233.html
Battery 2S 1000mah http://www.giantcod.co.uk/1000-2s1p-...-p-405656.html
Board Jussi v1.1
Pro mini

I will add photos as parts arrive and work progresses

Problem! the props dont fit properly on the 1406 motors. They nominally are 4mm ID ,but are only trully 4mm for the front half of the bore . the motor has a propsaver integral with the motor bell and that is only shouldered at 4mm at the base- consequence is that the prop doesnt engage securely on the propsaver and can float about-this causes huge vibration if you try to run the...Continue Reading
