I have some extras off some larger sunny sky motors. You can have some if you think they'll fit

BTW i plowed the V-Tail head first into a tree yesterday. I shouldn't have been flying in 25-30mph winds but i had two hours to sit in a park while my son practiced soccer... what else was i supposed to do? ;)

Wasn't going very fast and only flying LOS since the wind kept knocking my tripod with the monitor over. I was going in and around trees, the wind caught it and it went right into the trunk about 6' up. It was a huge crack even from 100' away! It then planted into the mud at the base of the tree. When i got over there. i broke one prop, and it knocked the bottom plate of the clean section loose, but otherwise no damage. I think i'll need a tad more CA on the joints but it'll take about 5 minutes to fix!

The front roll cage did it's job. Mobius and FPV cam have not a scratch on them! I was recording so hopefully I got it on video.

Will look forward to seeing the video

Hey, Ben -

My Quad kit just arrived from Only Fine Helis. A zillion parts.

Might I suggest that you include page or two showing how the thing goes together? I know you have posted awesome photos, but my workbench and PC are not within easy view of each other.
