DCQ4 In The Wind

SORRY FOR THE JELLO ! Still Waiting On The New Prop Balancer 

Flew the DCQ4 on the FPV Farm in a slight breeze . the CC3D flys like nothing iv ever flown its so locked in . unfortunately with the wind i was not keen to attempt a flip or a roll . 

DCQ3 In The Wind

Playing with the DCQ3 in the wind this morning . it is and amazing machine and always flys so well . also testing the new gopro . James and I have figured out frequencies on 5.8 that we can both fly fpv at the same time . im on boscam ch5 and james is on ch1 

FlippinRollin LOS Tests 

The gopro was not doing white balance correctly so i flew los and did some flips and rolls . i also discovered why you shouldn't ad yaw input when rolling . which cost me a arm . but all is fixed and i should be attempting some of these moves fpv style on Sunday . 

Damaged the arm but with a bit of epoxy its all mended and flying again 

 

Im Stupid 

Sorry For The Jello !!!!! Again . im still waiting on the the new balancer.

So once Again I have done something stupid , after flying around happely with the DCQ4 i got brave and attemped a backflip but as the video showed i got freaked out as it came over and i saw the ground . but she was flying great till i did a stupid thing . 

DCQ3 Bobbin Tests

After crashing The DCQ4 i took out The DCQ3 with its new bobbin design . It works great although the kk2.0 was acting up i managed to get some smooth flying done . 

its amazing how flying the dcq3 comes naturally even if i don't fly it for weeks. it is like i just flew it . 

 Flew on friday with James. What fun hopefully we will be flying together more often and in some more interesting places . 

 Decided to chase a bixler with my quad copter . The gps read 65 km/h at one tine while looping the circuit . had a great day out at the feild . 


 Flew my divinity 2 wing with a fpv system for the first time and it was awesome . the first section of the video is all FPV once i land then its LOS because my spotter wanted to fly his bixler . 

A short video of my FPV fast flying track up at the park .

Watched some videos today and got inspired to fly close to stuff including the floor . was pushing my skills . all flying was done with out auto level .

also all flying was done with my 3 turn helical antenna . 

A quick one of me flying FPV with auto level on , I dont like it as i was told its like driving a car with the handbrake on . 

Sorry for the props in the view but i left the gopros case at home and had to mount it further back with elastics . but with out the case i never crashed coz i was scared of breaking my camera . 

 Sorry for the wobblynesss but it was bit windy . 

this footage was from the trip i took to kloof gorge with some school mates .

finally got to herd something other than birds with the quad copter .

 Testing the new antenna ! and WOW it was awesome . i doubled my range passed the range of my tx . but the quad survived . and i got this footage . 

IBCrazy keeps saying that the helical antenna is not a beginner antenna and now i understand . the beam is very narrow  i flew out of the band really quickly . but i will work on flying better . 

 A quick flight at the local store before i went in for some shopping . I got to chase birds and also get some awesome slow flying Ariel footage . 

all footage was taken with my suptig camera from china 

dono what the white flashes are . but will look into them 

 Flying around fpv is cool but gets boring very quickly so I devised a challenge . 

the challenge is to fly threw the trees . although it sounds simple it is not . the max altitude you can gain is just over 1.5m and the lowest you can go is 500mm because of sticks on the ground . if that wasn't bad enough you have to fly into the sun to . 

this was my 6th or 7th attempt but i finally got it . but when i tried the 8th time i crashed .

 A short flight yesterday . Im getting braver and flying lower and closer to things . 

also my first flight that my battery alarm went off while i was not next to myself .
