MULE DOWN!


Well after some solid flying this past Friday I had a crash with the SkyMule.

I guess using a 10x6 over prop finally caught up with me. Down the Mule went.
Ouch.

But no fear. Nothing a little hot glue, foam tac and tape couldn't cure.

The address the over prop issue I stepped down to some 9x4.5 props I had on hand and also installed a 5v/5a UBEC so I no longer have to rely on the ESC to power the receiver.

I'm very happy to report the SkyMule flew on Sunday with no issues.

Enjoy the flight.

 
Ski mount

Sorry to resurrect this thread, Andre, but do you have a copy of the 3D model of the ski mount? I broke mine today and I'd like to try and make another. If not I'll model it up.

Thanks!
