Behold, The Noodle Copter!

Amazing, it flies rather well!  It catches the wind a bit more than the Arcticopter as might be expected.  Orientation is wonderful... no doubts which end is which.

Alex is going to make another one for himself.  It seems like it will be the perfect trainer craft... pretty much impossible to crack an arm in case of a crash, and I'm imagining that as loosely as the motors are mounted with the zip ties that the motor will shift before taking any serious damage.

Here it is flying in the front yard, in some pretty stiff gusts of wind that blows down the canyon that makes up our street.  It's got a KK2 installed, since that what was lying around.  Alex suggests transferring an APM into it.
