Jeff,

That's a Wheel Horse. I never named it... 3 speed high and low range. It's great for hauling wood around.

Quail,

So far so good. I can't put my finger on it but it just seems more stable than the tri.

It really does look stable. Very stable. Nice job. I have a couple of questions.
Is the CG close to your dowel in the center?
How are the Pulso motors working?

Hi Morris,

The center dowel got me really close. I started balancing it at that location, marked where the battery was, then moved the battery back about an inch.
The Pulso's are working out great!

Djacob7,

You have to build it. Check out these two threads. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1142429 & https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1284199

LOL... No way. You should see Bob fly his tri in person. I'm still in grade school. (3rd grade.) I have a little clip of Bob that I can post.
