  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

« on: May 11, 2018, 23:26:48 »

Frame - CMW Massive Droner 2.5 inch
Stack - HGLRC XJB428 wi5h vtx
Motors - hawksky 1107 6500kv
Props - gemfan 2.5x52
Cam -foxeer arrow micro
Rx - frsky XM+
Lipo - tested with 850mah 3s, probably try 650mah, see if flight time is too short

Running butterflight latest rc. 8khz/4khz dshot600
Had to almost stiock pids on p and d term to get it to stop oscillating, but expected that
May put a v antenna or even an axii ufl, depends how I feel

<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />i want to delete<br />
Captured footage, will edit and post, very litterally maiden.
First observation - I don’t use 3s so I don’t have any lipos, except I have an old 850mah 3s 25c.
This thing eats it,
Fully charged, 4-5 seconds out the blocks at WOT and I am getting alerts, need better 3s lipos.

Otherwise smooth and agile, a little slower than my 3 inch vandal (jury is out on if that is the lipo) and quicker at changing direction, would be a brilliant indoor racer (don’t mean in the house) but need to sort out lipos to check out outdoor properly
