New Video! – “High and Low”

Fellow RC fanatics, may I present my latest FPV video – “High and Low”

Every time I fly the Tricopter I fall in love with it over again. I’m currently working hard on making an affordable and high performance tricopter kit available to you awesome guys. Keep an eye out for that. Hopefully in a few weeks if everything goes to plan.

I hope you enjoy watching this video as much as I did making it.

Back in Sweden

I’m finally back in Sweden after 18 months in the US.

I’m currently working hard on the new house my wife bought while I was in the states. The house needed a lot of TLC (tender love and care) but hopefully we will be able to move in within 2 or 3 weeks.

A lot of people have been asking for the Tricopter bodies and I will start selling them again as soon as I can get the machines into the new house, which should be within 3 weeks.
