Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Find some one that has a 3d printer and pay them for the parts. In my exp it costs very little and even less if its a friend and you feed them.

Re: Tunnel Mite Prop selection

See if one of the local prop shops has a loaner program. I have found these to be very helpfull trying to find the right prop. A smaller diameter higher pitch should get you more top end, but less of a hole shot. Another option is going to a 2 blade.
