Nice :)

What's the noise?  Is the prop shaft or prop unbalanced?

Fantastic, love the idea and love the project.

Hoping to get myself an Autonomous model soon, so it's great to see when it works well.

Hi,
     That u/j sounds like a diesel engine is it hitting something or just out of line?
           Cheers,

It sounds like an internal combustion engine so I thought I would just leave it as it is.
