Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

Well erm nice aerobatics rough landing  :shrug:
Its good that people can share the good flights and the bad  ~~
I think your mate is right probably time for a new design  :rolleyes:

sausageroll

Well I could always make the same design out of something stronger, and weaken the legs, so that in future the legs go and the chassis just hits the ground flat. The legs i recon took 90 percent of the load by bending like that. Modifying the legs into a springer design has gotta be the first thing to change...

Gaza07

How about one of these puppies, the gimble just clips on the one I showed you the other night, the battery tray also clips on and they can all be positioned for the right C/G, I will get one of these some time soon  ~~

...wheres the fun in flying something someone else designed and dosn't break when you crash it...

Gaza07

Very good point so buy another for when you keep crashing the big fella  :whistling:

sausageroll

Keep?! Hah. This only crashed caus I crashed it. I know not to do that now. It should last a while until something fails mechanically and all of that stuff is pretty good....


Gaza07

ooops keep might have been the wrong word  :-/ should have said for the rare occasional  mishap or dumb thumb moment  :rolleyes:  ~~

Well I was having a lot of fun watching the gopro gyro levelling. I was moving it from side to side, and I moved a bit too agressivly and it somehow lost control, think it flipped over.

Looks like its gonna be ok.

Ive got a big machine vice with ground flat jaws from my mililng machine, I used that and then the tougher bits, I layed it flat on a bit of thick MDF which was pretty flat, and whacked it with a block of nylon.

sakiskoz

We have the same drop but you are lucky your copter is one piece, mine is - finito - now :cry, it comes down from 60 meters :bravo:

icedfusion

That was an odd crash - not sure you can blame yourself for that - would have thought the software could cope with you moving the copter whilst in GPS hold.

ice.

Gaza07

I would of thought that if you just let go of the sticks it should level up on its own  ;)

i have an original kk board on my hack about quad and once i took it up until it was a spec in the sky.  I lowered the throttle for decent and as it came into view it was upside down lol.  With the stock stick scaling settings I was not able to flip it back and basically drilled into the dirt lol.   I reckon I dropped the throttle too much.  I cut out a couple of new G10 frame plates and new B n Q 10mm boom (only 1 broke) and back in the air again.

Had a good day bending today.

This is what I had to deal with,

USing a big machine vice, blow torch, and obviously loads of skill and talent (lol) amazingly ive managed to fix it.

Thats what I like about aluminium over something like CF, CF would have snapped, this takes the shock and bends, and can be fixed by bending back. That was a very hard crash, and its fixed with no extra money or parts just a bit of careful bending...


Gaza07

Looking a lot better now soon be back in the air again  :bravo:

Gav

what size motors n props are you running on that beast, pete?
cheers
