    I think I will make it fixed position for the reasons you mention, but it will be adjustable in a small range to dial it in.

    Just a little girl car, my Miata. It's turbocharged but has a few exhaust leaks.

    Sorry to derail this but I remember seeing that on your youtube channel now that you mention it. A buddy of mine has a 96 1.8l running about 12lbs on megasquirt. FUN to drive. It was actually him who linked me one of your video's and I'm like, I know this guys name from FPVLab.. small world! My RX-8 would love a turbo but would eat it's apex seals for breakfast...

    OK sorry for the derail!

    Hex-y caught on camera at 1:33 and 5:46



    On-board footage from this flight was lost due to a crash with the Mobius on another plane, an ejected SD card, and a field full of ravenous flies and mosquitoes. I'm also a noob who doesn't record the live feed.

    Looks awesome. Love the forward tilt on the arms. I am not sure about the tail though. Does that seam strong enough?

    The tail is actually stiffer than the front arms, but I will do test flights before making any changes. They are .125" G10 and very strong, they just flex a bit more than I hoped.
