Hi,

This quadmini is fun, what motor are you using on it?

:)

Sorry so long to respond.  Thanks for the question.

The motors that did the best were the motors from a downed(broken)  "SYMA S026 chinook r/c helicopter"
I bought the cellphone vibrator motors from Radioshack. They were very slow RPM. Of course it didn't fly.
I was not able to find motors with enough RPM to fly, or the CCW, CW blades from http://Hobbyking.comHobbyking.com were off center and balance. It might fly with the right blades.
Let me know if you have any ideas, Thanks.

I bought the blades from http://hobbyking.comhobbyking.com, but they were way out of center and balance. 
I don't have the device or knowledge to fix the new propellers.

I bought the "gws-like" props from http://micronradiocontrol.co.ukmicronradiocontrol.co.uk, i can confirm that the CCW ones i got are rediculously out of balance and I have spent far too long trying to fix them. My advice: shop elsewhere (if you find somewhere good in the uk please let me know :))

I haven't got it to fly yet.

I cant drill the propellers in center and they are off balance taking away power and control.
I can Hang this quadricopter from a string and move all around lean forward, lean back, spin left, and spin right. but not enough power with the radio shack vibrator motors.

I will go back to original m
otors and extend the 8 small wires.

If anyone has some ideas let me know. I would like to know where to buy a 3"-4" left and right handed propeller for a 0.03" shaft.

Your replies will be appreciated! Thank you.

The propeller is now available! Print a right and a left! Go to thing page.... http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10839http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Propeller for quadmini

I am making printable blades. I hope to upload soon. Please take pictures if you finish a quadmini. I would love to see someone getting theirs to fly. I am trying to get new micro motors with longer leads as not to crudely extend the current leads. If anyone can help please post.
