Well I couldn’t resist… here is tiny whoover prototype #1 for me. When contemplating the design my mind wandered towards silverware hacks to increase performance and other more complicated approaches but it’s totally unnecessary. Level mode on an e010 works great. I’ve even tackled some big bumps like running up on the kids foam padding on the living room floor by leaning back to lift the nose more then leaning forward. A lean forward on pitch will give a little speed boost in a straight away. They’re fast and too much fun!
I used some of the foam packaging from my 3d printer box. The soft epp type.
Above you can see the air pocket recess I hogged out with a dremel.
Here is the fc mounting and battery bay. Batt plug moved to the top of the fc.
Half of an e010 frame shoved down into the foam and hot glued for rear motor mounts.
Upwards bevel on nose to help get over bumps.
This Is a great use of old busted frames and crap motors. These parts all had broken struts, broken ducts, bent up props, and we’re otherwise not of any use in the air. But they make all darn fine whoover!
Edit: keep your prop tool handy … these guys suck up hairs like mad - you’re gonna be pulling props off pretty often but it’s so worth it.
Next … fpv gear, paint job, and maybe a 7mm version!!!
