If it flies - I want one!

Neat - I guess the pusher motor is just to get her up to speed where the Hyperdrive can be started to get her into orbit?

Broke the nose on the orbiter. Easy fix, going to reduce power for next try. Uncontrollable
left roll under power.

Video camera is trash, no videos and I'm not buying another one.

I made up a simple bracket that is bolted to the peak of a cap and held my phone on to it with rubber bands.
The video is fine. A bit too wide angle maybe, but OK.

I have a plain cell phone!, just a phone.

BTW, the larger one flew like a dream. Three flights tonight.

It looks like it should go well and it's nice to see that its looks are not deceiving.

The orbiter is repaired and power reduce to about 75w. Same 1600 kv motor. New motor, the
original had a wire pulled out in the crash. 10a esc, 7X3.5 prop. Will still go vertical at less than
full throttle.
