My swept-back V-tail design

Here are just a few photos of my new swept-back V-tail. I wanted it to look fast even if it's sitting still. What do you guys think?

Picture 1.png Picture 2.png Picture 3.png Picture 4.png Picture 5.png Picture 6.png

Some of my ideas I wanted to realize where...

Dual rear motor/prop pair should match thrust, and draw of each front rotor,

Dual rear prop pairing should be as close as possible to the same tip-to-tip span as each front props length, (rear span is 12", front props are 11" )

Fast yaw rate,

And finally, it must look menacing!


SPECS:

Flight Controller) KK2 (firmware V1.1) V-tail mix ( with reversed rudder outputs in mixer editor )

Props) 11x4.7 front, 7x3.5x3 rear

Motors) Turnigy AIR (L2215J) 900kV front, Turnigy AIR (L2210A) 1650kV rear

ESCs) HK-F20A x4 ( stock firmware )

LiPo) Nano-Tech 2200mAh 35-70C

I'm hoping I can get some footage up soon. I need a good camera man... Maybe I'll take a little trip north, so the flitetest crew can take some shots of her LOL.

FINALLY! A multirotor that ISN'T a flying abomination without style or grace!

Well done, sir! This thing looks pretty cool. Any plans on building a cool, futuristic looking body for it? This thing screams for one!

Thanks for the kind words! I would love to come up with a nice sleek body design for this thing!

I have had many ideas for alternate designs of the frame, but so far I have not come up with one for the body.

Thurmond - I was probably drinking when I posted that.

Actually, I do like the looks of this multi rotor. I can envision a really rugged, badass looking body for it.
