Browsing through the site as usual I ran across your video's of what you call Torque Tube mods.  I was just wondering what mods you made to the system?  I have not started my project yet but I have studied my drawings.  Also, what happened to the gentleman flying the 701 that you mentioned suffered a crash at takeoff.  I didn't see any followup on the incident which must have been some time before April 2011.  Since I haven't started my project I am on this site all the time studying and learning.
