Today we had the pleasure of being visited by 3D and FAI World Champion, Curtis Youngblood.
He also brought along his friend the Stingray 500.
This is the first ever commercial collective pitch quad copter.
The blades are custom built and designed by Curtis himself.
Under the hood, the Stingray stays relatively simple.
All four blades are driven by a single 3000kv motor which distributes the power using an ingenious belt system.
The four servos are controlled by the TG-Multi. This control board was custom designed by Curtis and his father.
The canopy is beautiful for FPV racing or just FPV flying.
On top the view gives a great perspective of the Stingray itself or it can be placed down by the front scoop to have less body and more scenery in the shot.
In the air the Stingrays 3D capabilities are unparalleled. Trust us, these screenshot do not do it justice.
Thanks again to Curtis for letting us check out his beautiful mulit rotor and for these amazing shots of Canton, OH.
Be sure to visit Curtis here and check out all the goodness he has to offer!
Also, be sure to chat it up on the forums!
