what kind of remotae control should be used?

hey can you put a link to the turnigy 9x, I can't seem to find it online, or if there is another cheap receiver

Is there a payload capacity here? Can a camera be mounted?

Printed this design in several sizes. All of them appear pretty heavy for any kind of performance.

A very interesting development. Interestingly, the shape of the top edge of the duct has a dramatic effect on the lift generated by the ducting. You might want to look at this as a reference: https://capolight.wordpress.com/2015/01/14/quadcopter-rotor-duct/#comment-3036

How stable did you find this when you flew it? I like the design and how to seemed to have balanced the weight.

Interesting reading, I have some basic knowledge about ducts, but unfortunately my printer has a max build area of 120mm and with 55mm props I can only do so much if still wanting to make the entire frame in one piece.

Maybe Ill try and make more optimal ducts with a soft dome edge and a tepered exhaust by making them in pieces.
