    Hey everyone! A few months ago, I built the FT rotorbones tricopter and have had a blast with it. One issue that I have is flight time. Using a 2100mAh 3s battery, I only get between 5-6 minutes of flight. Does that sound low, and if so, any suggestions on how to increase the flight time...

    You know how it is SO hard to make time to scratch build with your kids?

    I love scratch building because I believe it offers the best way to create great memories, a sense of accomplishment, and a level of understanding superior to "out of the box" -Plus its less expensive most of the time :cool: And I just like building things! Alas, it can be very difficult to...
