I’ve been flying sub-120mm brushed quads for almost a year (April anniversary-hehehe). I can build them and fly decently in LOS and FPV modes. I can do rolls, but still afraid of doing flips and loops for fear of loss. (I know, wrong hobby)
Anyway, after countless Youtube videos and scouring these sites, I haven’t been able to nail down some basic information on flying and tuning. I have nothing to compare my quad to someone else’s, so basically,
How do I know if my quad is flying optimally? Hopefully, one or some of the “seniors” could help me with the following:
Not using any self-leveling modes - once my craft is hovering in place, how much correction must one apply in order for it to stay relatively in place?
I can get it into position, but it won’t hold altitude, constantly having to compensate with throttle. Also I seem to always be correcting the other axises. Is this correct?
Let’s say we’re making a beeline in one direction and you want to whip around back (hairpin turn). Is it normal for the craft to gain altitude at the apex of the turn? Example: Low altitude slalom course
I always have to decrease throttle to compensate for this.
On fast flying:
No wind - is it normal for the craft to buffet slightly when flying fast in a straight altitude - like if it’s flying in windy conditions?
I don’t know if these are tuning issues or that I’m just a crappy pilot - hahaha
