Guinness Quad

I built this quad specifically to set the world record for fastest 100 meter ascent. I had to build a custom frame and use a 4 in 1 esc to make the quad as aerodynamic as possible. The quad is a 300mm size and the arms are only 4mm wide and 10mm tall. I also used Mr Steele motors because of the moderate KV rating and larger stator diameter to help spin the 6x4.5 inch props. Finally the wood I used was some fairly lightweight burl of unknown species that I found in the scrap bin at my local wood shop.

Can you please send me a video of how to build one

The frame or just the quad in general? If your talking about the frame, it not has complex as it might seem. However I personally would not recommend the vertical arms, the quad was fine at first when everything fit together snugly but after a few flights and crashes it started having some huge problems with oscillations. Anyway if your still interested I can tell you more about how to build it, and I'm also pretty sure the oscillations could be prevented with some sort of cross bracing between motors, i just didn't want to do anything that might slow down the quad at the time.

I was looking at the price wondering how you managed such a low price with Steele motors. Then I realized it's a LOS rig! I'd love to see a video of this thing flying.

75-80 mph vertically?

Very close to that, 77.9 MPH would have to be the average speed to cover 100m in 2.87 seconds, so I would say its top speed is closer to 85.

Love a photo with broken props. Thank you for sharing what it took to break a record.
