    Bat Bones electronic layout and build ( first multirotor )

    Does anyone have any pics or a good build thread for the Bat Bones tricopter. There really isn't a build video anywhere. The frame is put together with the servo on the tilt mount. How and where can I layout everything. Best place keeping in mind of CG. And how do you find the CG?

    Help with HKPilot Mega 2.5

    I've spent close to 100 hours trying to get my FT Bat Bone tricopter flying. I've burnt a DF13 connector and an ESC, and broke one of the arms off and it still hasn't left the ground.

    Build suggestion... Quad single rotor!

    After watching some videos from http://www.youtube.com/user/NightFlyyer with his experiments on single bladed props, I can't stop thinking about how it would work with a multi rotor. This would be a great mod to a Bat Bone V Tail (just throwing that out there). Other than the modded props, I...
