Looks like a nice construction! I like how you have separated the motor frame from the rest of the frame, but what's holding the 2 frames together? I'm suspecting that's the thing that makes it a lot better in vibration characteristics. Worked first time for me when I tried it too. There must be something magical to that "separate frames" idea...

Who made you sound so sad BTW? Sounds like someone laughed at your old frame or something in the first vid? :)

BTW2; I have planned to make such a vid today too, but with the goal of doing the ugliest functional frame in the shortest time possible. Tonight I think. Since I have nothing to fly... GRR...

I have 8 (#8 self-tapping zinc) screws through the bottom lexan/PVC.

Haha I was sad my first frame didn't work well... Lol

(are you calling my frame ugly?!?) Haha

Thank you, Honk!
