How are the screw mounts on the Gorilla bottom plate? Seems like the CNC Aluminum with machined theads would be a lot more durable.

Ok guys, decided I would try the staggered setup once again. I took off, hovered for a bit, and quickly landed in grass with no problems. I think I am actually going to like having the tail up a bit.

What are you guys doing about the rear gear/screw arrangement? Obviously the Align gear in the back doesn't bend as much as the Gorilla Gear in the front, so the screw goes in sideways. I found that if you put an old head o-ring/dampener it squishes it up nice.

The only thing I've found that's a little deceiving is the little nose "drop" that occurs when you go to land!

the nice thing about the gorilla gear is that the material will bend but not break. CNC aluminum is rigid and will likely break something else if you crash, like the cf frame or bottom tray or both. That's why the gorilla are so great.

You are right, it is a basic rule....if you reinforce one part, you move the "breaking point" to another.

I would never put an aluminium rigid gear, since the next thing to break si the frame....just HHO
