I was asked how many Hubsan prod I have.
I took a picture of the ones I found. Later found a few more not in boxes.
1) 502T modified to use a 502E battery
1) 507a modified to use. 502E battery
And a 501A that needs. New body that is on its way here. I need help. Big tag sale coming up. Look carefully I have prices on the ones still in boxes. Except for the ones that gave quads on them. The boxes ahve a drone inside never flown

I like that this design has more motors. I've also seen some with just 4 motors, which means there is no redundancy when one fails.

Yes I agree.
The more the safest.
But even with that better design, the FAA will never certify that flying machine.

Oh well.
I got my new Runcam Micro Eagle camera that I wanted to place on my Vortex 150 P.
But I did not like the set up that would change the dynamics.
So I placed it on my Torrent 110.
I did a short indoor flight.
Wow what a view and high quality video as well.
The Torrent camera was ok ,this one is awesome.
I hope the weather gets better.
Oh I added for fun a small canopy to protect the VTX .
Guess from which quad it came from ?
And the yellow tape protects the USB connection.

I like that the motors are below the cockpit also. Scary when the 3’ prop is 3 feet from your head.

A small helicopter isn't that much different when it comes to risks. In fact, with a helicopter, unless the pilot can do auto-rotation landing, you are pretty much doomed when the engine or rotor fails. With this multirotor, several motors/props would have to fail before things get critical.

But for now, I think they have other things to worry about first, like getting decent flying times, to actually cover some distance. So far, most concept "flying cars" lacked flying time, to be really useful. Having to carry the pilot, which is mostly "dead weight" since he doesn't add to the propulsion, like a battery, or other part of the craft does, puts these multirotors at a massive disadvantage compared to unmanned craft, like our quads.


Return of the Skull Drone, lol. Are those HQ Prop blades btw?

Still one of the best toy grade, could handle wind better than many bigger quads.

I have 3 inch HQ on the Leader 3, very happy with these, silent and efficient. I might have to try their 2.5 inch, if you are happy with these.

I was hoping you wouldn't have been happy, I just ordered some 3 inch HQ props from Get FPV a little while ago, since these are almost impossible to find here. I could have included some 2.5 to make the most of the high shipping cost, had I known before it would be a worthwhile prop to try.
