[WEEKLY CHALLENGE SERIES] #5 - Hit a gap, any gap
« on: June 11, 2018, 06:39:16 »
I thought we would roll things back a bit this week, and focus on a core competency, of flying straight and true through a gap. Throttle control and avoiding a desire to twitch the sticks are key.

No tutorial video because it’s just a matter of finding a gap and going through it.

Let’s be sensible and only hit legitimate gaps, no animals or structures that are likely to endanger others.

Happy flying.

(Just in case you’re wondering where this is all leading to, in a future week we will be looking to bring all of these individual moves together into a single 1minute flow-video - but that’s for another time)

Never has an easier sentence been written! 🤣

P.s should have been the gap slap challenge. Lol

Yeah got me wandering, for Chris’s benefit, does the gap have to be there before you hit it or can you make your own?

Also, and I shudder to point this out? No time limit?

I feel the establishment may have folded on this one! 🤣

Is it extra points for creating a new gap?

I have considered doing that a few times but it’s a really tight squeeze! That, and the fact that a basketball net is usually 11 feet above concrete has put me off!

Two and a half minute clip-show huh? Okay then, the gloves are off!

Nice edit though Adam, loved the golden hour shots over the field.... was that an AD at the end too?  ::)

Ty Chris, yeah there is one, I even thought of pointing it out. A lot of ghost branches on that gap, I was so intent on stuff from above what I actually hit was undergrowth :)

Lol I actually ditched several more minutes of gaps, If Chris and JJ post at the end of the week I think this one is gonna go all “Tolstoy”

Ty mate, I am not a photographer, Chris has been very helpful with GoPro settings, I just thought the soundtrack was begging for those opening shots like that
Ads? You mean for my prop balancing expert or EWM? (Paul sent me the motors on that quad to test, I really am grateful, They work really well on that build)

As 'Orbits' was one of the challenges and Hitting Gaps is another  -I thought you might like to see those 'two' combined in the first 30 seconds of this clip.

Anyone attending BFU#5 with a slightly higher pitched voice - will be a give away for trying  to (unsuccessfully) 'emulate' this  :blink :blink
