250 quad booster

I had an idea of mounting a 5th motor to act as a booster for my 250 size fpv quadcopter. I searched the net and found an edf booster for a quadcopter. I thought that pusher props are much more efficient than edfs. With the help of my flying buddies, I went ahead with the project.

I mounted a zmr motor with a 4x3 prop (trimmed 5030 prop). Assigned the 5th motor to a switch that is close to my finger in case of an epic fail. Set the travel adj to 50% and hoped for the best..

Comments and suggestions are more than welcome. Enjoy the vids..

Interesting concept... the main rotors can concentrate on the lifting while the pusher provides forward speed... things that make you go hmmmmmmm

Great concept...Now maybe put a more powerful pusher motor, rudder and small wings with ailerons on it for another test.
