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

TeslaQuad.....My Story

Right, after uming and erring for some time I committed and bought one of Chris';s (TeslaHead) TelsaQuads.

Despite having a little issue with being unable to connect to the MultWii from my laptop I decieded to give it a go. 

After a couple of seconds in the air it became apparent that I had a slight backwards drift and a tiny bit or right rudder - by rights I should be using MultiWiiConf to dial these out, but as I can';t connect I have trimmed these out in the TX until I get the MultWii connection sorted.

After I was happy it was a little more stable, I decided, despite the rather breezy and gusty wind to have a quick hover in the garden (yes I know this is not ideal - but I couldn';t wait any longer).

I am probably going to embarrass myself, but hey-ho, here';s a video of today';s, first ever proper attempts at flying.
Sorry about the quality - I need to get a proper video camera (probably a quad flyers favourite, a GoPro) but I need a few more pennies.


I am very happy with the Quad, thanks Chris & happy that it is still in one piece

Just watched the video - considering the wind you';ve got that thing holding very steady!  Hovering in small spaces like that might not be the funnest thing you can do with a quadcopter but it';s great practice for learning precision control.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

The stability is my skill, nothing to do with the way it was set up ;)  & you can tell how windy it is by the way the weeds are being blown about :laugh:

OK, so I have a couple of days off & I crept out the house today for a quick flight, or four.

Did a bit of hovering and forwards/ backwards flight.  Also got a bit overexcited and tried flying away from myself, piro then flying towards myself - that ended up in the grass, with motors looking like...

...quite a few times

anyway a boring vid of what I tried today.... :popcorn:

Also tried some old Heli landing gear on it, but was way to heavy and really messed with the way the quad flew, so took that off pretty sharpish.

So I went out and flew today...all I can say is "Ooops I did it again".

Was flying in a slight breeze, an gust cam along and caught the quad - started blowing it sideways.  Tried to point it into the wind to bring it back to me but lost orientation - sun was behind me and made it hard to see the LEDs. Quad met ground and.....


If I';m honest, I was pushing my luck and trying banked turns, so, maybe it was my fault as well

Oops, never mind it doesn';t look too expensive to fix - put it all down to experience!
