Here's a cool video my son shared with me:

http://vurbmoto.com/videos/must-see-...station/13827/

It has nothing to do with multi-rotors, other than much of the footage obviously came from a camera aboard an R/C heli of some kind. And since this is a motorcycle forum after all, there's some freakin' amazing moto action. Check it out!

Nice...

Is it just me or is the Whip getting really played out?

After a bunch of searching, I found a Vtail!



It's mine, guy will be shipping it out soon. RX ready... Can't wait to try it out.

It has the KK2 board on it.

It looks like the FC won't be centered between the motors?

My KK is centered on the CG but I've read that it isn't critical for the KK. Some other flight controllers may need to be centered.

Had me feeling like it was a bike mounted camera.... until it turned on it's side and gained altitude without the ensuing 'yardsale'! Fun to watch.

Yep! The KK to Rx connection is funky. I made my own but it's cheaper to buy them pre-made.

Looks good, can't wait to see it fly.
