In between rain showers, managed to get a few minutes flying time. wanted to see how the little thing would cope in gusty wind conditions, and also probably the only chance i'll get before we get hit by the really high winds as a result of hurricane katia.

well, it's finished, and flies pretty well. still a bit wobbly, but that's me as a noob, but slowly getting steadier as more flights are logged!

there has been some alterations, namely the arms, as i found the 15mm was causing me to obtain not so good lift, so dropped to 10mm, and all the better for it! also a slight re-design of the landing gear, which was re-designed as was bending the bolts inwards/

overall, i'm pretty happy with it, and would not have been possible without.....
inspiration (tretch5000), ultra talented,
soldering of damaged board (mike barton) firmware and all round saint,
kapteinkuk for making these boards and supplying firmwares,
matt halton for encouragement,

and all the helpfull people on the forums of rcgroups!

components are.....

4x turnigy plush 6a esc's
4xhk 2000kv 10g brushless motors
kk blackboard
1mm carbon sheet
m2.5 bolts
used glowbracelets
old tv ariel (15mm arms)
10mm alloy box (revised arms)
orange 6ch 2.4ghz rx (without casing)
spektrum dx5e dsmx tx
