Default RE: IV Ti has gone bonkers

Just messing with you. I found a whole bunch on eBay for around $2 as well. I think I'll grab a bag just in case.

That custom landing gear seems like a good idea. I was thinking of something like 4 foam half-spheres (the white, arts and crafts variety) strapped on to each of the motors. Super stable on the ground, will protect the motors from any landing other than an inverted one. Simple and cheap. I initially birthed the idea from worries of melted snow causing motor shorts, but realize it'll protect the capacitors just as well. Might keep the heatsinks from doing their job if it weren't winter here. Suppose I'll have to come up with something else for the warmer months.
