actually, reading your post again made me realize that what I changed won't fix your problem. Sorry.

Are you using a mixer? It could be miscalibration of the speed controllers, so one's seeing slightly further out of neutral than the other. If you recalibrate, but still have issues, you can try messing with your transmitter's settings, depending on what you're using.

I'm using this:

It's mixed using the file from the site:

In other news, Slim Pickens works! All I needed to do was to recalibrate the ESCs whilst moving the trim on my transmitter. Now all it needs is a new wedge!

While moving the trim? Hmm, that's odd. How exactly did you do it?

On the store page for the TinyESC, it states:

"Is one motor faster than the other?: When calibrating the faster motor, also move the trim on the transmitter up (when you move the stick to the maximum) and down (when you move the stick to the minimum). Recenter the trim lever, center the stick and remove the calibrate jumper. This will limit the top speed of that motor. You may have to try different amounts of trim to get the motors to behave exactly the same."

Using bolts with lock nuts to support the wedge shaft for Thunder Child, I discovered this:



It'll be much more effective if I get flipped over. I'll probably make a new one out of thicker ti.

I also learned that someone damaged my lipo at Motorama. It was probably In The Margins.

Can it's wheels touch when it's on it's back with the blade spinning, or does it just count on flipping itself back over?

Good stuff.

Any news on FLCL? I've been wondering about how you were gonna do a pneumatic mantis for a while now.
