Very cool, all it needs now is a ballistic recovery system in case something fails.

Very cool, Saget. But one question; where's mine? :)

I'm wanting to build one but my micro quad keeps me pretty happy. I'll go back and read your build info.

Here are a couple of links to keep you busy for a while.


http://www.kkmulticopter.com/

http://www.rcgroups.com/multi-rotor-helis-659/

And this is the place I ended up buying my gyro board from. Everything else came from HobbyKing.com. (They also carry the KK board, but were out of stock at the time.)

Looks like fun, but I was expecting it to end with a big splash!!

So what's the clicking noise? A slipper clutch, or gear teeth being shredded away?

Not complete sure what the noise is as nothing broke. I believe it to be chatter from the brushless sytem as it approaches lock up.

A little good news...

http://www.modelaircraft.org/aboutama/gov.aspx

Congress has recently passed legislation intended to prevent model aviation from being swept up in the effort to enable the operation of commercial and public use unmanned aircraft and to protect the aeromodeler from overreaching and burdensome regulation. While this is a positive step, we need to remain vigilant on the issue, knowing that the FAA will release its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for small Unmanned Aircraft Systems in spring 2012.

Good deal...

For me I am grounded....winds here have been not below 20mph for a week and we get regular winds up to 45mph. Today it is going to rain.

On the plus side I just got a goodie box from HK...couple 4s batts for the Stuka and some FM rec....you know you don't need chrystals for them anymore....who knew....Yes I have been out of the hobby for a while.

Finished the plane today. It is ready for its maiden flight. Pretty good looking ARF.
