Hey, this is an AWESOME UAV I made using Fin tool and 1 thruster, just for forward movement. It uses a rudder and elevators with Fin tool and wire hydraulics to maneuver. It is very stable, and has a rather reliable and accurate stall notifier, along with a speedometer and throttle meter (you can't see them because I used the camera to take the pictures). If I ever can get my recording software to work, I will upload a video on YouTube about it. And this does NOT use any hoverballs, or thrusters other than for forward thrust.
Don't worry about flimsy welds; I used adv. ballsockets to reinforce all the welds, and now it's now flimsy while flying, not even the duped version, which I have extensively tested.
Controls (very simple):
Alt:Reset throttle (to 0)
Wire SVN (latest version; make sure there are
constant and damping inputs on hydraulics)
This version has no ailerons; they were too buggy and flimsy. However, it turns fine with just a rudder.
