Nice job! Have you had a chance to fly it yet? I bet the four prop resonance will sound cool!

It would be great to see all of the esc's wired and where they are located.

Thanks!

I'd like to get a better idea of the way you mounted the motors. Looks cool.

"differential thrust" How are you working this? Not with the throttle stick alone. Interesting.

Thanks Chellie. The answer is plain, controled by the rudder stick.

Looks great! Bet it takes off like a rocket.

Differential thrust is easy with most higher end radios.
Is useful for taxiing a taildragger with a castering tail wheel or tail skid. Also for a float plane with no water rudder.

Can't wait for video of it in the air! I wanna convert my .46 Tower glo powered stick to electric. Gotta figure what electronics I need, and an engine mount setup.

My avitar is Grumpy Cat saying, "Hasn't he crashed yet?"

My name is Mark and I approve this message.

Those yellow glues such as Titebond are quite strong, likely plenty strong enough for mounting motor mounts and such.

IMHO, epoxy is still the adhesive of choice for highly stressed firewalls and similar locations.

That's not a proper flying field, the trees are much too far away!

that's funny Dave
there is about 5+ planes stuck in them
we have all that brush around the runway
that turns into bungee sticks in the Fall
when you land in it makes your plane look like Swiss cheese
