    Very cool! What kind of foam is that? Can you provide details like weight, wingspan, and power set up?
    Cheers

    That's excellent! What axis do you have gyro's running on? Looked like bank attitude was aided on the takeoff and landing.

    thailazer- Glad you like it. All three axis are aided by a gyro when hovering or else it would be unstable. Pitch is also aided by an accelerometer. Might be some accel on roll also but not as much as pitch.I doubt I need the gyros on for forward flight but since they are on the plane anyways, I also use them during forward flight.
