Get your practice in, as I have been practicing for quite awhile and you will only see my red rear drone LED if your not ready.







Here is a "first concept" design.

I think you will be surprised how similar it is to driving an RC car. I really think Kyosho hit the head on the nail with this new technology of steering with a wheel rather than a stick. Since the drone flies at either 11" or 23", you really only need to worry about throttle (going forward) and left and right. You can apply the breaks at the curves and make tight turns. I like to start my turns about 5 - 7 ft before I get there so it's going in the right direction once it hits the curve. This only applies to making turns after a long straight where you build up speed. You can slow down and take any turn tight without breaks. Almost like drifting.


You can change the colors of the LED per drone so their easily identified in a race.

Looks and sounds good.
Also agree...Kyosho did very well with making the drone like our mini-z in steering/flying it.

Very cool!
I drove my drone at mimis today (indoor offrd track)
Had a great time. Many expressd interest.

Learning:
Active mode is faster on a big track.
easy mode is actually much better in the living room than active

Would like to see a 1/27 scale dr one day
