Very nice drift. What are your pitch/roll rates set to? Any expo? Mines really quite sluggish in the flips, though running stock hubsan motors and props

my rc rate is set to 1.2 and .65 expo
rp rate (on the pid tab) is pretty high. i don't have my cable to hook it up right now, letting someone borrow it

Got a couple of lipos in before the wind and rain picked up. Getting really solid performance, super happy Got a wide angle lens on the way which should really help with the close up stuff, even if the picture quality/colours will suffer.

Just need some calmer weather

I find the Wide Angle Lenses to make things look farther away. It's a sacrifice when trying to see more to the sides.

For anybody else patiently waiting after finally receiving a replacement material order (after they shipped 800 worth of the wrong grade a couple of weeks ago) I have now just been finishing machining a decent sized batch of both frames.

WIll also hopefully finally get a chance to get some of my new designs as well

I agree, this will be the year of the brushless micros (hopefully!)

Update Time!


You'll have to excuse me if I seem brief but having to do this on my phone as my pc won't connect to the wifi for some reason.

Anyway after finally recieving my replacement carbon fibre stock I have spent a couple of days clearing all the back orders. Only minor change to these frames was thickening the material boarder round the motor mounts screw holes on frame and motor mounts by 0.4mm.

These have all been shipped and I am now starting to build up a real stock level.




Before launching the new website I intend to build up a good stock level that can be more easily maintained. I also want to complete testing of a few more frame designs that I have mentioned a few times but have been in the design stage for a while.

Any way onwith the pics. These are both 135mm brushed or brushless capable micro quads. I litterally through the frames together quickly in the half hour before leaving the office but am pleased so far.

First up is the Wasp 110's evil cousin
This one i'm calling the HORNET 135.

Selfish of me really, but I have the parts ready and waiting before you posted I was looking at the picnic sparrowhawk or a PFG frame... Much prefer your design, flight test results will be interesting. I still want some spares for the v2, I'll pm you later

Any one need any motor mounts


LOL


6 hours cutting for about 400 motor mounts and still got to chop them out
