Quick update..

First test hop with the 1000 setup ended in a dirt nap due to a servo output shaft shearing off.
Damage is extensive

more to come

Kelly,
The frame set is completely un-damaged held together like a champ.
The rest I'm afraid is trash,
Getting what spares I have on hand together, to begin tear down and rebuild, but replacements will need to be ordered

Don't let anyone tell you your design is weak or flimsy.
If it held together after this lawn dart.. I'd call a flying tank

Replacement parts have arrived and the rebuild has started..

Kelly has been busy designing and fabricating a few upgrades to his K- Frame design in order to do a stretch modification

Maybe I missed it but I can't find it. What voltage were you running at? And 40A to hover with the 28lb weight?

Well completed the final modification to the build...

Hand built a raised TT transmission and elevated tail..
As soon as the winds die down we'll give it a test run...
