I'll borrow flohio's keychain camera to take some onboard video. It might make you sick though.

I think it's the weight, or lack there of. If I turn the dual rates on it flies more like a wing. It's more like a flying piece of paper. Flat it cuts through the wind, soon as it flies up its like a wall of air. I think it's fun because it's stall speed is barely anything and it turns on a dime. Weighs just under 4oz for 26"wing

Cute quad.
Are those high refresh Turnigy ESCs? Are they performing to your expectation?

So far so good. We'll see how it goes after I flog it around a bit.

Please keep us updated. Really like to know how those high refresh Turnigy ESCs perform compare to 50HZ ones. Thanks.

Go to my YouTube channel, e11Allen. I believe one of the videos I explain what I used on that wing. If that doesn't work, shoot me a pm and I can help.
