yes,
Otherwise known as the Pogo
i'm in the process of painting it now, i'm going to try and do proper markings on it.
it's only a 16" span about 19" long so it fits in a case i have and i could take it with me on work trips.
i plan on using a nippy black 508 and 2 or 3 340mAh lipo cells
so far what you see in the pic weighs 1.5oz, does that seem resonable to hover with that power setup?
anybody have the 508?
what cells are you using?
i would like to use the 700mAh cells but i worry about weight.
what do you think?

I'm using the 0508 on a Shockflyer and you will definately need 3 cells. Mine is pulling exactly 5A with an 11x4.7 APC with the 340 3S.

I'm going to start a new post asking people to list there power setups with as much info they can, there is so little info on this stuff it's like a guessing game.
