    First built quad log (Or V-tail?)

    I'm unsure if this will be a V-tail or a quad. I'm more interested in the authority that a Vtail has, with the advantage of the Tri without some of the negatives. (Such as: a motor goes out and the Tri crashes. Same is true for quad or V, but less likely to destroy all things.) I'm also...

    V-Tail motor mount un-happyness

    So, bought the V-Tail motor mounts, had a hell of a time getting them onto booms that I painted, which resulted in one of the bottom sides that goes on the bottom of the boom breaking. Glued it back on, used a zip tie to secure the whole thing to the boom. Did some test flying which resulted in...

    Hi Guys! Finishing up my first quad build, its a v tail. My vtail has the rear motors facing downwards. My question is how do I install my props on these motor in order to push air towards the ground. I know they have to go label up. Should i use CW props on a CCW motor rotation and vice /...

    unZapped "Mickey" Vtail Airframe Prototype is HERE!!!

    I am building the perfect VTAIL airframe for aerial video, photography, and FPV. My aim is to eliminate the anxiety, cost, and downtime related to having to rebuild or order more parts after every hard or less than perfect landing. Therefore, it must be nearly indestructible. It must...

    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...

    V TAIL PROTOTYPE

    This is a V Tail PROTOTYPE (more to come), that would made because of the V Tail Bat-bone and my green envy, with a bit of walking aimlessly through Home Depot this V Tail PROTOTYPE was made. I was really surprised that it flew so well on the first try. Production will be better on the next one...
