Here's some video taken last night of my Shuriken depron mid-pusher jet indoors (primarily in the dark half of an 82,000sqft hangar)

Great flight, That thing does some amazing tight circles. Sounds like a chain saw motor on in that hanger. :Q

I was blown away by how much easier the Shuriken is to fly in the hangar than my SU was. I even felt so comfortable with it that I did some inverted in there (admittedly, I've done a lot more inverted through the summer though, so it may have just been a mental hurdle :red:).

I think I figured out why it's so loud, it's my clamp motor mount using the flat carbon spar to amplify the motor/prop vibes throughout the entire wing (where my last SU used a stick mount to the foam, this one uses a firewall mount with a groove clamping down to the wingspar). I'm probably just going to balance my props and run it as is.
