Hi there,

i have been bussy the last 2 weeks and created something new in my mancave.

It's a V-Tail quad made out of old quad motors and props and also arms that where
from a project of walter (my mancave co owner).

I used 40° angles on the rear and 60° opening between them.

here some pictures:

folded back for transport

OK, camera battery is empty.... i will post more later

one thing i already learnd is to use locknuts!! i lost one nut in flight and one arm folded halve way back.
Luckily nothing serious happend.

Another nice frame you've got there! She looks a bit heavy -- what's your AUW?

You might also consider adding some hooks and rubber bands -- even if the bolts don't loosen, the frinction fit on the arms will give after a while. a stratigically placed band will make that problem all go away.

Looking forward to seeing her in the air!

Hey craftydan! Thanks for your first responses to my airframes!

I have already a video of it in the air. Again shot by my girlfriend which is excited about everybody viewing it! (that motivates hear to film it :) )
I need to improve all of the filming stuff but again i will use what i have of footage and show it.

beste Grüße, Aquanot
