Spent lots of time flying today in a nice big open (sandy…) field.
Ended up doing some LOS acro as I was very much enjoying progress in learning FPV acro (it clicked! I can do flips and rolls and stuff!) but I’d killed my vtx antenna when a prop came off (or the cloverleaf leaned over and caught the prop, or something. Dead antenna was the result in any case) so I was LOS time.
Did one, largely by starting nice and high. No problem!
Decided to do the next flip with the proper throttle modulation rather than leaving throttle at hover/cruise.
Got my sticks mixed up and power dove into the ground at high speed.
One of those crashes where you see bits tumbling away from the impact site.
This was the result of policing up the area:
Not bad actually!
Knocked the camera off and filled it with sand.
The battery came out of its rubber band mounts, pulled the FC off its tape, then went tumbling away.
The FC didn’t leave anything important behind on said tape.
Cleaned all the sand off, stuck everything back on, Anne voila! Back into the air!
I’m very impressed by this kingkong 100 frame and it’s ability to not die.
