Tri and quad

Just a few pics of my tricopter and quad copter. The quad is waiting on a hoverfly pro board. Contrary to some advice, I have had better luck using vibration isolation and dampening than hard mounting. Perhaps it is a delicate balance between too loose and too rigid? One place where no slop is tolerated is the yaw mechanism. I had about 1mm of play around the bearings in the square tube. I filled the gap with Hysol, and the wobbles went away.
