Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Very good Matt another unique design that flies well, and sounds nice and loud to  ~~

Looks good but when you refer to the pipe as 1/2" or 15mm is this the outside diameter or the inside diameter, I ask because it looks bigger than 15mm, and I just thought 15mm might flex a lot  :smiley:

Gaza07

The 15mm pipe we use here would be to flimsy and would bend to easy, there has been a few pvc copter projects here but they have used electrical conduit or over flow pipe which is stiffer and around 22mm

you can see the pvc quad here http://www.multi-rotor.co.uk/index.php/topic,74.0.html
