Taking one of the better beginner Quadcopters and making it better and preparing to build my own.
Well sorry for no updates folks, but my brother had parked the thing on top of a very tall tree in the creepy neighbor's yard back in June if I remember right.
If the neighbor was home I am sure he got a freight when my brother and I carrying ladder and very long tree limb cutter came marching to his house pounding on the door that night. Since he didn't die of a heart attack or call the cops when we were swinging about on the top of his deck on a ladder or walking on the roof, I will assume he wasn't.
So that explains the lack of activity. I wanted to stick with the same one as I had done a bit of work and research on it, so until I can gather the money and time there will continue to be a lack of activity.
Here is a tip though. Get rid of that protective top cover. Seriously. It is plenty strong without it, and all it does is give a tree the death grip hold on it. A few propellers broken or your quad permanently decorating a neighborhood tree?
