Actually that helps almost as much as knowing its painted red!

Hmmm..... on second thought.... the only reason you would NEED 2 recievers is if one is mounted on the can portion and one on the spinning motor portion so they could rotate independently from each other and controll seperate things.

One controlls the motor and maybe something else. The second controls some sort of control surface.

You could get by with one battery pack and feed power along the motor support struts to the rx on the can.

On third thought tho you could just reverse mount the outrunner and you wouldnt have to use seperate recievers.

Surely your not using 15 chanells?

OK, the paint color gave more usefull info

Now Im even more intrigued!

I'm with Larry, it's red...

Hmmmmm:

2 servos
2 RX's
1 motor

The only conclusion I can draw is (removed)


"Why didn't I think of that...sooner".

OK, here is a possibility. It would require 2 packs, but the rx pack could be very small - even a single cell with the right Rx.

I'd say that if you look closely at the motor angle in proportion to the 'can' body, that it obvious that the motor is angled, meaning that it is possible that it is controlled rather like a helicopter rotor; cyclic control? I bet that the motor is hinged and servo actuated, probably by two servos. He can angle the thrust that way, in relation to the 'can' body.

You pretty much got it Larry

The motor is a gear driven Feigao 1208436 and mounted ridged , spinning a 10 x 4 SF prop. The large prop is what gives it the torque to spin the body.

I can't give to much detail, patents are pending

You ARE a genius!

There have been flying cubes for awhile, but none of them spin while they fly.

There was a .60 glow powered saucer looking thing back in the 80's... I can't remember the name right off hand. The rim of that one did spin I believe but the engine did not. If I can find it in an old mag I'll scan it.
