DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Dualsky Hornet - is this normal?

Took my Dualsky Hornet for its first flight today, and crashed it!  :cry

The quad caught me out big time. I';ve been used to ';toy'; quads whereby if you give an input the quad will fly in that direction, but if you centred the stick it would stop. With this machine centring the stick just made it carry on in the direction it was travelling. Is this normal flight behaviour? The flight controller was in ';min'; mode, which I understand to be ';stable'; mode.

I let it get away from me a bit and was heading towards some trees, but then it did not appear to respond to the rudder input, although panic was creeping in at that time. Stuffed it into the field behind the trees and broke two arms. Now need to find spares.  :rolleyes:

I';ve found the same thing with my PK450, the Twister quad does exactly what you said - the PK450 needs to to corrected I think it';s most likely to be to do with the flight controller.
Because these toy quads are made for beginners they are made very stable,  too stable really which doesn';t help when you transfer to a bigger more sophisticated quad; part of the learning curve really.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

Thanks Darrell!

Yes, now realise my quad has gyro stabilisation, but no self levelling. Caught me out well and truly. With hindsight what I should have got was a quad with self levelling that could be switched off on the Tx when confidence was built up. Any suggestions anyone?

On the plus side the Hornet parts are cheap, just hope A51 can get them in real soon!

No problem, it was a bit of a shock to me when it happened - I was lucky though I';ve got RTL (the ';Oh sh1t';) switch on mine so it was easy to correct the problem;  that said you have to be very careful that the preset height doesn';t put it on track to a tree or something!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!
