Here are the 20" Fidget maiden flights , made in our indoor venue..
Its a nice small aerobat, it rolls fast, loops tight and it was no problem .. bashed and crashed a few times, there was only some broken props down to me fitting a prop addapter rather than a prop saver..

One week later.... next session.. Going Very Well
The fidget has now been fitted with a prop saver, made from the prop addapter.. So I only broke the one prop today...lol..
My flight times are constantly at 15mins on a 500 2s..
The motor/prop is very quiet, and there is more than enough power to hover and climb out..
The Fidget is great... The COG has now been moved slightly further to the rear, but some more movement is needed to improve the hover.. Its not yet too sensitive..

On the prop addapter, This was held to the motor shaft with a single hex grub screw
which was removed and discarded, I hate these things, a drill was put through the hole and the opposite side both drilled and tapped..
The addapter shaft was shortened , it now goes 1/2-3/4 way through the prop..
Two suitable pan headed machine screws now hold the prop saver to the shaft and a band is used to hold the prop..
It works a treat and fits a lot of my props that Ive drilled out to the correct sized centre hole..
