"I do not want to sound disrespectful but I wonder if there is indeed a working prototype that can fly? All pictures I see on the website are just mediocre renderings and the only video on the site showing the real thing does not show it in action.…"

"Having a similar problem here: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/autotune-on-v-tail-quad-not-initalizing Though my Ch7 gives me full amplitude my copter does not go into AutoTune. Also Mission Planer does not display that AutoTune is enganged."

Autotune on V-Tail Quad not initalizing

Hi there, tried to "autotune" PIDs on my Pixhawk which is configured to drive a V-Tail Quad. The V-tail Quad flies quite ok already but sometimes it behaves a bit unstable/nervous in the air - that is especially when it's getting hit by wind gusts.That is why I setup the autotune feature to CH7 on my Radio.CH7 is configured to a switch on my radio and I can see that it works like a charm in the radio callibration screen.However: When i flip the switch while flying in STABLIZE or ALT-HOLD…See More

"Thank you Tom. I have designed my V-Tail now in a way so that all 4 motors sit almost perfectly on a circle around the CG. Taking about the correct angle for the tail rotors: Some say 40degree, some say 30degbis the correct angle. This is a huge…"

"Thanks Tom. I can easily calculate the proper CG with my CAD, so i do not worry to much about that. I was just wondering if there is a "defacto standard" how a V-Tail-Setup should optimally look like and which works best with the V-Tail…"

"@McCray: Problem with ceramic bearings is: Their specs only allow very low RPMs (about 2000-5000rpms - that is way to low for a multicopter) + they are expansive like hell + it is difficult to get very small ones e.g. for motors in the 220x…"
