I have done Dynamic Soaring in over 55mph, and quad flying in over 25mph with the right equipment.

Broken props are part of the process  :D It's amazing how antennas can find their way into the props  :D

Well I survived my first FPV flight!... my props and receiver antenna did not  :whistling:

Seeing how cheap they are i was just wondering if anyone on here had tried it?

crash pilot

I was thinking same thing as I just bought one of them atoms and so far very impressed with set up I want to put on my funcub for fpv hope someone does it first so I know it works and I dont smash mine up  :laugh:


openpilot or cleanflight?

I know cleanflight worked upto 1.9 but is currently broken.

TBH, hadn';t even considered the options...

I put a cc3d running the final OP firmware into a flying wing. the set up was not too bad and the flight was ok. In rate mode the wing did what it was meant to at low to mid throttle but at high throttle there were some nasty oscillations. In self levelling modes the wing tried to kill itself by immediately and repeatedly diving at the ground. this could be corrected by yanking back on the sticks but as soon as I let go again the wing tried to bury itself. the accelerometer was calibrated and the orientation was correct so I';m assuming it was just a bug.

I tried to add some TPS into the set up but it made the pids go wild whilst watching them in the GCS so I gave up at that point and flashed cleanflight onto the board. that was just a bad joke in my opinion. the set up is double dutch and I gave up after an hour of googling and tampering.

I';d be tempted to try librepilot in another wing but my thinking now is it isn';t worth it. just fly fixed wing manually or go the whole hog and run a pixhawk with full gps and auto pilot capabilities.

it just makes sense


Having tried a kk2 and kk2.1 for that purpose I would say that it';s not worth the trouble, this is better and cheaper and much easier to set up:
Of course it is dependant on use of Spektrum gear but I think that there may be a Futaba version available. They are also available as stabiliser only so can be paired with a different rx, just convenient for those who use Spektrum to have the combined version.
If you want gps functions then APM or Pixhawk are the best options apart from the fixed wing specific controllers.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


I';ve got a Naze32 in a fixed wing, running Baseflight - in passthru mode it works just fine, self level goes into oscillations like mad because I couldn';t be arsed to PID tune (never really intended to use levelling - just wanted to reduce wire clutter by using the naze with a PPM RX in passthru mode)
