"Dave, a photo of the finished model is attached. I test flew it today. On its first full power flight, 1,000 turns, six strands of 1/8, it was OOS at ten minutes. Luckily, I went down the bearing and found it about a mile away. Now I'm going to put a DT on it! " - Grant Carson
"These are the pictures of the Scatterbrain, it was a lot of
fun to build and very different looking. I now have it almost trimmed
out. It is super stable and if it hits turbulence it really corrects
itself super fast. I am flying it with 6 strands of 1/8, 17" long."
