Yeah I crashed the Vtail. Doing some nutty flying to show a buddy what it could do - I did a hard tail drag (unintentional! haha) on the concrete which buckled the rear motor mounts and balled it up a bit. haha.. It was pretty cool looking but too much for epoxy to fix.

I just got the frame in the mail yesterday so I should be back together soon!

I got the new Motor/ESC/BEC for the VisionAire last night and got that thing working. Swinging a 13x8 prop on 4S it should be a powerhouse. Lunch break is in an hour, everything is in the car ready to go, and the sun is shining ;)
You need to have the USB interface to update the KK board

Consider looking at the wood Simplecopter Vtail frame or make one yourself. I dorked my Tricopter in (per the video) and broke the right boom, 2 props and cracked the tail boom. 15 minutes, 6 zip ties and some thin CA and I was flying again.

Yeah my buddy built a wooden tri and the thing is a rocket! Very cool. I like watching the tail wiggle around too .. It's like it's alive!

Any pics? I haven't followed Matt lately. I made my own T-copter based on his design. There are enough differences to call it my own, I think. A V-tail would be cool

www.simplecopter.com

Videos including build video at the bottom. I'm not seeing the benefit or difference of the V tail. His flying it seemed just like the tri in flight videos.

Well done. What are you running on stick scaling?

Thanks! I have another video that I took this morning in better light. I'll upload that ASAP. I'm running stock PI settings, 90 for scaling and medium mixing.

I may bump up the PI a bit, increase scaling to 100 or 120 and go to high mixing just to see

I didn't like high mixing (I assume you mean SL) as it tried to return to level too fast. You could drop the PI maybe. Obviously if you had good stick control it may be different for you. I'm ham fisted and tend to bang the sticks around.

Def try 120....super fast everything. I like fast.

Thanks for the info. I'll try scaling alone and see how it does. I may be able to leave SL mixing at medium if I can get it to flip/roll at a better rate. I like this return-to-level feel as it is. 120 scaling is 30 more or 1/3 more scaling that it is at 90 so that's quite a jump and should work nicely!

If it helps you're welcome to my experience.

I did bump my expo up a bit also to soften the feel when just flying around normally. I've been running 65%-75% on my 3D foamies with *huge* control throws and like the combo. Thought it would work here also...seems to for me.

I used to (attempt to) fly helis and would hate when people would ask me that.

I did, in fact, use your expo you mentioned a few posts back...65%. Seems to be a good default point.

I also used it to blow the leaves off my driveway and get our little dog all worked up as he was playing in a leaf pile my daughter built. Again...no one was harmed.

120 scaling, baby! After these vids I charged up my packs and did four consecutive backflips but didn't get it on camera
