    Spilled some beer on my laptop so couldn't share the progress as some buttons weren't working, but now we good to go.
    To join two halves together I glued GF brackets to the top half, they will be held together with 6 M2 screws:



    Cut some holes for ESC cooling:





    As I mentioned I've no full sheet of PET for my vacuum box, so did the windows the old skool way. Using window off-cuts I sculpted forms from clay and with heatgun stretch around a piece of clear plastic. Looks a bit on a rough side but it has to do...



    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    LOL- "Build something to beat me" . That'll be tough! I love the look... kinda looks like Eve from the Wall-E movie! All you need is a plasma cannon on the side, and you'll have a formidable weapon...

    Hehe, I'm very competitive, especially in the areas that I think I can do well. And if someone beats me that motivates me even further

    I would take you on, but this record is for the best *quadcopter* and in the course of my speed record pursuits I'm on the road to tiltwings with two motors.

    In the next few months I should complete my prototype and test fly it... hopefully...

    BTW that quad is quite gorgeous. Has a very Portal feel to it.

    I reached 163km/h (101mp/h) with my V1 copter and as far as I know that's still the record and hasn't been beaten yet. With this V2 I'm hoping to go over 200km/h, but I didn't lift it even once yet as the weather is absolutely crap atm in Ireland...
