haha Yeah one I had laying around, its a little small 14x8, are they garbage?

My setup is Odd but I was trying to use what I had, tons of power though, Exceed RC Monster 46 (a bit heavy but not bad), Ice Lite 100, 4000mah 4s 25c. Did a ton of ground testing first to make sure it would work ok, after about a dozen flights it's doing well, nothing really gets hot and loads of power with about 8 min of flight.

Well one successful flight tonight. After floating in for a hover it went to the right a bit to far and I messed up behind a little tree and smacked the ground...ouch! Sucks but totally repairable ....atleast it was my fault this time and not equipment failure : )...shows I was pushing the limits!
