Man, this is so good! That looks and feels very sturdy.


Thanks to you , your tie idea has lead me in another direction. 2D Thrust Vectoring (prop wise) IMHO only works in the rear. Have tried it within fuse, sucks, so I went and destroyed servos(had guard to prevent it) until I just gave up.

Do I need to say anymore. I am going to resurrect it with some form of tie wrap. Perhaps F1 can take a look at his frc 2d TV and get that back in the works.

2d and 3D TV has sort of faded away. Maybe, it's back!!
I like to design and fly unique planes.

Yeah, you're right. The VT mounts fade in and out over time. It would be nice to finally get something simple enough that more people feel comfortable to use.

IN My Scissor Shock Absorber Design Landing Gear Configuration, I use the "Opposites Repulse Magnetic Theory," + I utilized that action* on the DBL Zip ties, tied and fiber taped+hot glued into Exactly the *OPPOSITE Circular* Naturally occurring positions,where and how ..I want them to be Exactly+Exactly Even for that *3*-axis Balance2*, for maximum strength+ resiliance, make sense to u Dave? If not, check and enlarge my two* threads...one on Great White with Zip Tie Landing Gear+ Ur Zip Tie, thread with Extra flaps I added to her now, too, for more turnability. no rudders, Capice, she's a "Polaris Typed/Flying wing Combo."+ the landing gear zip ties are positioned, tactfully, too. And I'm sure u can relate when I say ALLLL of her and this trial and errors are part of her being a *Prototype, Cool? Any ?s, post me back. I'm all ears+eyes on the prize...to have minimal drag taking off, SAFELY.....AND MAXIMUM FUN FLYING+then Safely Landing, like us ALLLLLL want2, Rite!!

Well, they performed perfectly until 2 weeks ago when my ESC overheated and stuck at half throttle right into the ground at 40 MPH. That never happened to me before, but I should have changed my prop as the one I had was one size too large I think. For the F-117, the zips worked great.

Ha! The trick is to get ALL the parts to work together right at once.

This was the end result but the zip ties stayed in place

Seeing the Zip-Ties .... reminds me of thoughts to use piano wire loops set into underside ... maybe smooth enough to allow Rise of Ground ... and thin enough that in the air not seen.
I'll fly anything if I can launch it ! Youtube : solentlifeuk
