  • steveo9007: Cheers Atom was just a thought for now as I plan on keeping it well in range until I get comfortable with controls and flying
    December 05, 2018, 21:01:25
  • atomiclama: steveo You can just plug a GPS puck into the FC and get the OSB to display the coords, record the VTX and when things go tits up you have the last known posistion. Whislt not accurate it is a good starting point. Or get the coords sent back by telemetry to you TX which will be more accurate as long as power is maintained to the quad and it is range with the TX. Just some thoughts.

  • steveo9007: Is there a post on here about the 433mhz telem tx ??
    December 04, 2018, 07:56:49
  • steveo9007: ok thanks shaw
    December 03, 2018, 20:31:44
  • shawdreamer: meanwhile the 433mhz telem option I mentioned gives you live fixes in realtime and not "delayed texts"..... plus it doesnt cost you credit everytime you request a gps fix (btw the tags sim card also needs to have credit on it :laugh:)
    December 02, 2018, 20:47:10
  • shawdreamer: and yes that does actually work..... I tried it for a laugh a couple of years ago ::)
    December 02, 2018, 20:45:09
  • shawdreamer: the tags do as you say use satellites to get positional fixes but they dont immediately report those fixes to an App, each tag requires a Sim card (same as your phone) which is used to "text" you the tags position..... in other words you could get the exact same effect by strapping a old smartphone to your frame with the google "where is my device" app installed
    December 02, 2018, 20:44:13
  • steveo9007: doesnt the tag communicate with the satellites and not via a data system, isn't it the user who owns the tag go via data to the app that can locate the tag ???
    December 02, 2018, 18:18:11
  • shawdreamer: plus, alot of the lower end trackers struggle with GPRS and often rely heavily on GSM data instead which is just not worth a sh1te when it comes to pinpointing a downed frame
    December 02, 2018, 16:23:30
  • shawdreamer: most readily available gps trackers are not really suitable for anything smaller than a 400 sized frame as the units themselves are often too bulky for anything smaller and larger frames often already have their own gps setups that can simply be outfitted with a 433mhz telem tx that would report live and accurate info direct to a ground station so there'd be no point in a sms type tracker
    December 02, 2018, 16:22:07

Yes, that's right, Hamster, Captain Slow and Jezza took a trip to North Wales and got up to stupid antics.

Maybe this is the Wales Special?!  :hmm:

Anyway, try not to fall asleep, and if possible watch with a decent stereo/headphones!

Hope you enjoy....

OOhhhhhhh yeahhhhhh!!!! Loved it. Good job getting some storytelling in there as well. I'm going to make a little more of the climb in mine  :sweating:

There were some really good bits where you synched some of the hits in the music to sun-bursts and things, really like that.

That was EPIC.
I waited till late so I could watch on the projector screen with decent sound.
Great flying, brilliant sync with music, and perfect music choice. I will be watching again.
Loved the slow build ups. It was almost like you had the music playing in your ear while flying.

All the vids from that location are amazing, was there much crash reel. It looks so unforgiving.

Lol, no matter that was my new seven inch that jakalas built for me. It's a cruising beast built for this kind of flying.

The MD came along too, but I could only make it 2/3 of the way up Snowdon. I didn't realise at the time I had the vtx per turned right down! I'm gutted, I wanted to do some mega long range on the 2.5 inch.

Cheers Andy. This edit took ages. Considering its a raw edit that tells you the effort was in syncing the main events to the pacing of the music - thanks for noticing!

Thanks ched. I was a little nervous about releasing a raw edit of long range - it's not the most exciting of things to watch.  I'm really glad you watched it on the big screen with the stereo turned up, it really adds to the experience.

We had no crashes at this site. To be honest everyone was really managing their risk carefully. If you get it wrong in a location like that you've lost it permanently. Personally I was flying well within my envelope.

Yes the big 10ft screen does make it more immersive  ::)

The long range was interesting, it's nice to be able to look round the screen while watching not just seeing things flip and roll. Don't get me wrong flips and rolls are nice but so is a bit of slow scenic imagery.

Good to hear no one crashed.

It was great to see different flights and styles all from same location.

I thought that too. I guess you slowed the vid down in places to get the timing right but you can’t tell. Really nice edit. What battery did you use on the 7 inch?

I have a flight with another loop round the horseshoe that was even bigger, but it didn’t work quite so well to the music!  Also the dive wasn’t quite so close in.

I know what you mean about flips and rolls. It drives me mad when pilots do them for no apparent reason!

Lol, yeah there’s quite a bit of subtle speed ramping in there to get things to work.  It really makes a big difference to the overall impact of the edit, so its worth investing the time in.

This is my seven inch build flown on my standard 1300mah 4s packs that I use on the 5 inch. I get around 7mins flight time.

Wow that’s impressive! Shows what difference an efficient set up makes! I thought you were going to say they were at least 1800mAh.

Yeah, it give me about 40% more flight time than on the five inch. 

The torque is incredible too, the thing arrests a dive so easily, but as a result it was really difficult to get the bird in tight to the mountain on the dives!
