Speaking of overgrown scrub, I recently helped the lady across the street look for her lost cat. Thought in back of my mind was that she owns a double lot, and I might be able to fly there. Turns out it’s so damn overgrown, plus it’s steep and there’s a brook, I could never fly back there. Oh well. At least we found the old cat.
I’ll try a low speed fpv tour of the woods soon so you can get an idea what I’m up against. Definitely with a spotter if I don’t get a buzzer first. Lol
One more guys!!!
Thats pretty sharp… Whats the specs? I’m looking to do a 3" build.
Basically this setup: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1783281
3mm CF frame from Armattan (I got Version 1 with a 3D printed canopy, link on the Thingiverse page)
Emax 1306 4000kv motors
Pico BLX (Clone)
cheap 600tvl cam*
MRP 4S 850mah
*Not really happy about the cam, the rest is perfect. Flies like a dream. Maybe a lighter battery would be even better. I get 4 minutes with power left to spare.
are you running 4s straight to the pico clone?
Yassss! I want one! How much do you want for it?
It’ll cost an arm and a leg. (#badDadJoke)
Yep, specifications say 2-6S even
Getting more comfortable with the 110mm, 1103 6500kv, 3" build. Found some rates that work well with it too, that’s helped a lot.
@Bobnova: You are improving rapidly! Flying that little brushless wonder is obviously getting more and more natural for you.
And… damn those power lines! But at least you’re flying FPV and safely on the ground. Contacting power lines in a manned aircraft is a whole different level of FUBAR.
I think about that sometimes as I’m bombing around doing flips and such… I’ve had plenty of crashes that would have turned a pilot into jello. Even on the ground it almost hurts sometimes! (Or does, when it’s me I ran into…)
Manned flight and power lines is not something I’m interested in testing
This is my first youtube fpv video ever. This DVR being recorded on 130mm - RCX 1304 - 4S - AUW 210g. Going to post second video for 95 mm BoBo build
Congratulations, Mr @Bluesky! Excellent flying. 1304 motors with 3025 props on 4S LiPo is a very good combination.
Do your (MMW and YT) screen names have anything to do with this ELO song?
Yes the RCX 1304 on 4s is rock, this 130mm quad a long with me for near 1 year, first I started with 1105 4000kv run 3S, but after that I converted to 1304 run 4s and very happy with it
My screen names not relate to the clip but it make me laugh a lot so fun and colorful clip, many thanks
Found some DVR footage day 5 & 6 part 2
Testing out Kingkong 65mm Props all i have to say is WOW!
Here are two vids of my AlienWhoopF4 put together with iMovie. No masterpieces but who cares.
Need to find a decent tune and get smoother on the sticks.
But damn I really had some fun here in hospital.
