Looks great Jaimyn.  Are the forward and aft quad motors about the 
centre of gravity of the plane itself?  If not then you will have one 
set of motors working much harder then the other.  On the QuadPorter we 
are trying to keep the quad as square as possible so the motors are all 
working as equally as possible i.e. drawing the same current.

Thanks, Grant.
