yellowjacket terrorism

The answer is yes. There is now a yellowjacket hive behind the dumpy apartment complex. If U go there to photograph or fly, you'll be stung over 10 times by a swarm, mainly in the head & have excruciating pain for the next 6 hours, followed by bearable pain. You'll need to run back to the nearest water supply as fast as possible & spray yourself in freezing weather to try to get rid of the monsters.

Still had enough unaffected skin after the attack & extreme pain to finish the quad assembly. Engine testing is already disasterous. Propellers spin up randomly from gyro noise. Prop savers break. Nuts & washers R falling from the fuselage.

Quad rotors R real dangerous. Unirotors don't have any starting torque. Quad rotors can go from 0 to full RPM instantly. Battery connector is too close to the rotors.

Good News & Bad News

The good news is that you survived the yellow jackets! They can be a real problem. Find a better test site.

The bad news is that they fly better than some of your inventions.

You know Jack, you may have stumbled onto something here... get that quad rotor thing flying and you can hover it over a yellow jacket nest, under a hornet nest, etc. Within a matter of seconds the inhabitants will swarm out to attack, instantly become bug puree, and the world will be a safer place.

You'll need a work truck with "Jack Crossfire - Flying Pest/Terrorism Specialist" on the side and a catchy phone number like 555-CHOPBUGS.

Franchise possibilities are endless and you can put those bankers and real estate agents to work and get them out from behind your fridge.

We are very impressed by the large monitor (and the quadrotor is OK, too). We are less impressed by the mousepad. Damn (sorry for cussing), Jack, get yourself a new mousepad, will ya? And stay away from them yellowjackets!
Seriously, looking good! G'luck!
