here's some new video from yesterday:
But this morning when I was flying, my Transmitter batteries died and my tricopter kept flying in the direction it was heading... straight into my house
so now its in pieces. Only thing that broke was a couple nylon nuts & bolts holding my motor mounts to the frame, and 2 props. But im doing a full teardown so I can examine and re-build a few components... and im also going to add some stuff to make flying at night alittle more fun

I have an E-flite Cx-3 that got me started in the air, and wanted to move to something a bit more advanced but the budget and time both crunched on me. Of my 5 various RC road based vehicles, I have driven only one in the last ~two years. And I flew the heli for the first time in almost a year about 3 months ago. I have about $250 worth of dead NiCd battery packs for the cars collecting dust along with all my other RC tools and spare/random parts. If I had the $ for some new Lipos I would certainly get at least one or two of them back into drive-worthy shape and go for a spin. But school = no spare $$.
After seeing this I think I need to break out the heli this weekend and fly it around. Maybe chase the neighbors cat since it sprayed my car a few days ago.

Check this place out for RC stuff: http://www.hobbyking.com
They are based in Hong Kong, and it takes 2-3 weeks to get anything. But its cheap as dirt.

The LHS has some nice 2s 5000 mAh 35C hard case lipos for under $50. Should easily handle everything I drive.
