I hear that Hobbyking imports a lot of its products from China, so yeah, I don't think we're getting quality work for our money. Fiberglass when done right is super strong. Can't believe with one bad landing it start to crack.
Wow, that thing is huge
thanks for posting .
Hey Tony, I only want to help but 'you get what you pay for ' This saying is true most times, As for esc's if they are getting hot upgrade to some TURNIGY Plush 40amp these are great or you need to get some air flow into the casing. looks good hope it all goes well.. Chris
use carbon fiber better structural stability.
You never posted a follow up on the flight of the big black turd?
All I can say is "ha ha"
It's epoxy from Bob Violet Models. I won it at a funfly 🙂 The big jet guys uses this glue.
Wish I had the space to work to mod it some more. It's not a bad quad just takes some time to get it right haha. Man if someone make a carbon version of this it would be awesome! Do you want to use mine and make a carbon fiber version? haha I love anything that's carbon! haha
If i was you, i wouldnt fly with it. If you know how to Work with firberglass use it as a mold, or frame or what its name is so you can build your own from it, or build a new one with carbonfiber. But you got to have fri time and like to Work with epoxy 🙂 ( i do ), thank's for the video i was thinking of buying one, not any more…:-) thank's
thank for sharing tony
can you give more pointers about this aerospace epoxy you are using? BVM?
The ESCs are getting hot because there's no ventilation. You must have airflow across them to cool them down.
Thanks for the review and no thanks on that pos kit
