Me too, plus I got the one that I'd ordered for the plane I'm building for you - so we've got an extra to experiment with.

All the hardware came in today, foam should be here in a day or so.

I'm excited. Keep me posted - also make sure that we blueprint so that in case of a "woops" we can reman the parts and keep flying. If you need something to offset your costs incurred already let me know... I'm easy. Take your time - it'll be better in the end, plus there is no shortage of things to fly at my house right now in the interim - LOL.

EyePod Warning!


If you leave them alone - they multiply.

Mine showed up today. I got the aerodymanic ones, in hopes they would fit the top of my GAUI 330X. They look to be a tad long. What is the length of the standard ones?

The standard ones are: 4-1/2" X 2-5/8"

Curious about putting them on top of a helicopter? Why not underneath between the landing gear struts?

I'm Planning to mount one under a Tiny Coaxial CX2 and extending the landing gear a little to accommodate the height... (Cutting off the skid and attaching CF tubes that fit right over the stock landing gear legs.


Can you send photos of where you want to mount it? Feed back with photos helps a lot! and if there are enough requests, I'll start making more designs using the same ball.

Best,
Richard

As for multiplying? Works on my shop dust all day long every day of the week! I leave for a moment and Blamo! I can barely walk through the place!

Gaui 330X


Jarel,

The bottom is where the battery is mounted with a Velcro strap and Velcro on the bottom plate. There is a Payload Mount that bolts on the top of the canopy and i have Velcro on that.

Makes perfect sense...

Will the standard EyePod work for you?

PM me and we'll figure something out.

Standard would be Closer. Measured the payload plate and it is about 4 1/8 by 1 1/2.

Do you want to trade?


Send me back yours and I'll send you standard.

Also, how many people out there fly these quads?

(I'm sure YOU would love a custom made one,,, but, the amount of time that goes into making the tooling... Hmmm... thinking... possibly altering my original plug...

Can you post a tracing of the top circle or if it is a round circle, the exact dimension of it?

Let me see what I can come up with... also a few more close up photos of the top AND the sides... especially where the arms come out from the top piece...

Sorry, Sentry. That magic trick is already accomplished by the Federal Reserve.

Richard,

Thanks for the quick ship.Got mine yesterday just in time to build and film this Sat a charity event at my friends house called kidsnbikes www.kidsnbikes.org. I'll be using my Radian glider. "Kids And Bikes Foundation is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization that began for the purpose of providing new bicycles to the children of families who had fallen on hard times".The bikes are given away to local charities to be distributed to the kids.

Lou Ventrua founder, had a simple idea. He started it few of years ago with just a hand full of guys and built 30 bikes.This year he went to China and bought the unassembled bikes,730 of them, enough bikes jammed side to side to fill an entire tennis court.Hundreds of volunteers come out to assemble them in just one day. Posted a couple of pics.

Sorry for kinda off topic but I just wanted to explain and let you know what a good cause your "EyePod" is going towards. It will help being able get a great aerial video of the event. I'm sure being able to see the event form a birds eye view will also help to create more enthusiasm(sponsers,voluntrees and donation)for next years build.

I'd being willing to bet that with tons of kids coming out to help, seeing a RC glider flying above them(of course flying at a safe distance from the crowd plenty of open space behind his house) This may inspire some of them off the D#%*video games and into a life long hobby.

Keep those inventions coming.

Thanks again
Rob
