because it is not finished yet so
other people could take a look at.
It is approximately a 22% scale of a
real airplane that was built in
about 1934. I am covering the
exterior at this point so the
internal structure will be covered I

As all of you now, I usually
have a project on the boards and I do,
but we had a bad house fire in August
2012 so that Cessna 310 will have to
wait. And yes, as of February 11 2013
they have started the repair!!!
Hopefully we will be back home in
So I canít do the big
Cessna 310. So what know? (I get
boarded easily). Went down to the
flying field and saw and met a
guy Len Stolfo (Upshotz
photography) flying a
QUADROATER. Got talking to him
about them and one thing let into
another. You know when your board and
canít get to your big project and need
something to do !! Will I found
a lot to do. Len sent me some links to
look at that had different frame
setups and motors and ESC and, KK2
Controller boards, and ,and,
etc.Ö Well, being a motor head
and never doing electric before didnít
take long until the confusion set in.
What are they talking
about? (Now I have to
learn a foreign language)
. Well ok.. Ordered the frame,
motors and ESC and KK2 Controller.
Nothing to do but wait?
Hmmm.. How do I make it work
after I get the parts?
HHmmmm. OKAYYY Off
I spent every day for two
weeks looking at YouTube and how-to
videos on setting up a Quad and the
KK2 controller and programming Esc and
started building a folder with this
stuff in it for reference when my
parts arrive !!?? By this time I could
tell you any and all you needed to
know about this stuff!!!!
But, the parts to make it all
work?? There is not a complete
kit you can order. So after three
different orders and may weeks of
waiting I finally got my Quad in the
air !!! Itís so much fun!!!!!
I am now in the process
of upgrading my Controller Board so I
can have GPS on it. That will allow me
to do altitude and heading hold by a
switch and another nice thing is , it
will let me via a switch have the QUAD
RETURN TO HOME with failsafe or
switch. So if you lose orientation
flip the switch and your baby will
come home to where it started..
I love technology!! I will also
have a Bluetooth device hookup so if
you have to or if you want to change
board setting you can do that via your
If anyone is interested
in building a Quad. I have a completed
list of your need!! Let me know
