"Very impressive and great to see folks having success outside of a "lab environment." Expecting to see many more of these types of multi multi-rotor technologies/demonstrations in the near future. Flock on."

London Calling: UK Multi Rotor Pilots Needed in April

UK multi rotor pilots needed the week of April 9-13, 2014. This is a general call for a project in the London area and we are looking for 5-10 pilots to fly multi rotors. A couple of requirements include: * Ability to 3D fly a quadcopter in a safe and repeatable manner * Looking for Mode 2 flyers but not a deal breaker depending on skillIf interested, please provide a name and an email link for consideration.Thanks,Rich (a.k.a.

earthpatrol commented on Jake Wells's blog post Gello is the enemy and Submarines are mean.
"Always enjoy your posts, videos and DIY ethos. In addition to decoupling the camera from the frame via zip ties, I've found that using some surgical tubing as a buffer medium works well in combination. Although it's a little difficult to…"

earthpatrol replied to Jake Bayless's discussion Octo-X, bicycle wheel design #2.
"Very nice! Would enjoy seeing some video of that flying. I'm guessing it flies like a banshee. Like that you leveraged the stiffness of the rim and went with the parallel center supports. Do you notice in differences in flight characteristics…"

"That looked like a lot of fun. Wish I could have brought the HooperFly fleet to the party. Fortunately it was nice here in Oregon, so I flew with you folks in spirit. Keep on MAKE'ing. Cheers!"

"Very cool. It seems like the props are now the weak link in the design with respect to "damage". It would be interesting to see a G.o.D. design with propeller protectors. Keep up the great work! ~HooperFly"

earthpatrol replied to Jake Bayless's discussion Octo-X, bicycle wheel design #2.
"That's awesome. Curves rule. Can't wait to see it flying. A sub-group devoted ring/hoop builders might be interesting. I've seen a handful of other folks starting to work in a "non-linear" fashion with respect their…"

earthpatrol replied to Jake Bayless's discussion Octo-X, bicycle wheel design #2.
"Rings/hoops make for stable flight characteristics for many reasons. It's great to see folks experimenting and having success. I've been making hoop based multirotors the last couple of years and have never looked back. I even started…"

HooperFly SiO4 - 333 grams

At just 333g, not including battery, the HooperFly SiO4 is a nice indoor/outdoor flyer with plenty of headroom.
