Kool, a quadcopter! Have a little lady bug quadcopter, but needs a wire soddered. Knew a friend had one like yours, and it flew great till he lost control. He wasn't too experienced. Busted a blade, and need to order an one. If you know what you are doing it is really fun to fly!

I was waiting for you to release your bug model and use it to create a new fuselage for my quad. I didn't want to press it after your tragedy but I think it would look neat on a quad.

The Quad is a Hubsan X4 (with video camera)

Body shell mount designed, built and fitted

I got me a new toy-capture.jpg

body shell 1# designed and coming together

I got me a new toy-capture.jpg1.jpg

First time in over two years I've put knife to paper and it feels gooooood
I'll be glad when my right wrist gets operated on so I can hold a knife longer than 10 minutes without going numb

Dear Gary,Space Rocket Scientist:
Wonderful project, Are you using the lightest paper for the shell? and have you flight tested it stock before modding it? I hope that the engine tubes don't change the center of gravity too much (might have to hide the same amout of paper in the nose). Absolute wonderful craft to bring to life.
Is it your own design, from a old comic or what.
I have seen these fly in some malls said to my self cute but, but seeing your idea makes it much more interesting.
Go Gary go,
Miles

A bit more done, a few tabs to glue underside and the other engine.

My own creation closely based on one of Amoebaboy's sketches

ha ha ! cool as.

if it gets off the ground we might be on to something
i did start making a big round the pole type flying saucer toy , bit like the mattel vertibird, but abandoned the project.
at the time it was the only option to get one to fly but now it seems the possibilities are endless.
i have a friend who buids the big quad copters with gps guidance and hd cameras, if this works there could be a big one in the offing.
