IMG_3034.JPG IMG_3036.JPG IMG_3035.JPG Took a few pictures of my 220 and my buddies, mine is the red one. I am a Star Wars fan and have been since I was 7, that was 39 years ago. Anyway, I just saw the new movie "Rogue One" and it might be my favorite yet, I thought the name was perfect.

Those look cool, seems like a nice design. One thing I noticed, are you guys compensating for something with those giant prop nuts? xD

A bit bigger than the normal bullet style. Quite a bit bigger than a nylon lock nut. But they look nice, I was just joking around.

They make it easy to replace the props for sure, but I'm a noob too. Btw- we also tried 3 blade props and they make it more stable, but not necessarily more agile. I went back to the 2 blade props and it seems faster.

tGO I know buddy, no worries. You made me laugh, you can't see a person when we are typing but if you could you would have seen me laugh.
Cdude that's good to know. We are thinking of trying the 3 blades.

I agree on the pics...I build and design custom car's & Truck's for a living and I am on a Builders forum and I post everyday with build progress (everyone on there gripes if you don't post pics) so I post up about 5 a day on average.
Yes I realize this is a hobby but it all counts to see what everyone is buying,building and Modifying (my 2 cents)

That is cool, my other drone is a '72 Plymouth Satellite. I have a lot of work to do on it before I get it flying though.

That was always the downfall to the Mopar's they tend to rust pretty bad
