Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

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

Good for you!  ~~

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

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 ~~

FPV frame

Something i';ve been thinking about for the last week or 2, i';m wondering how much of a difference these long base frames make compared to your standard square quad when flying FPV.

suppose in theory it should a bit more stable and maybe better for slow precise stuff, anybody have experience of flying both and would like to share their thoughts?

Well, the general idea with a ';deadcat'; style frame (TBS Discovery, Reptile/Alien, QAV500 etc.) is that the front two arms are spread apart wide to allow for a wider angle lens for filming with on the front, so that the props don';t edge into your shot like they would do on a 450 for example.

Realistically that';s the biggest difference, there is a small difference in how the frames behave differently, for example; from what I can tell the more rectangular deadcat frames are a bit more reactive to elevation input but it';s something that can be controlled using rates.
I reverse polarities for fun.


interesting i thought it would have made quite a bit of difference in the way it handles, and maybe slightly better for keeping momentum.

cheers for the input.

It does seem to want to continue travelling in ATTI mode, it only takes a small amount of stick movement either way and the momentum carries it forwards a large distance (when the craft is properly balanced). I suppose I haven';t really flown my disco much at the moment so it';s hard to tell you exactly what to expect, but I find flying is very intuitive anyway, I don';t particularly pay much mind to what I';m doing with the sticks.

aye some videos i';ve seen it looks almost like the quad has been setup to move forward all the time.
