Yeah Nitro heli's are not simple... at least not the Nexus! I was quite good nose in hovering and forward flight... but I never did progress enough for fast foward flight. Things came up and I actually haven't flown it in about 5 years.. But the small Blade Heli's keep me entertained in the mean time.
Very cool. I actually found this blog post:http://oddcopter.com/2012/12/12/easy-diy-quadcopter-build-part-1-the-parts-list/http://oddcopter.com/2012/12/1...
It's 5 parts.. It details every step! I'm still planning to print it though... as I want to do multi-colour and being able to print replacement parts is wicked. But everything else applies.
Is the motor mounting somewhat of a standard? Ie will they align with the holes in your designed arms?
I will be posting pictures !
