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 ~~

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

A tri copter, a Vulcan and a crash!

I put this in general as it';s not strictly about a multi rotor...

Anyway, while throwing my hack about after a week or so without flying I got very distracted (but in a good way) and as you will see, just had to drop the model as I really lost all focus :rolleyes:

Shows just how wide the FoV is on the GoPro as it is a few seconds after XH558 appears on the video to me seeing it.

Its a pretty good argument for having go pro as fpv cam. Got the cable but still not given it a go...

The Vulcan is an awesome aircraft, well before it';s time and not repeated by any other nation.  As Toad of Toad Hall once said ... "Toot, toot ..."  :smiley:

It is times like that when RTL or Loiter becomes kind of vital.

Lucky you getting to see her in motion. I';m addicted to the "blue note" and the Vulcan gives the sweetest I';ve ever heard. We got the airshow next week and she';s not scheduled this year and I missed her when she did fly at last year';s - boohoo.

Hope the tri';s not too put-out.... I think I would have done the same (or hit RTL).

It';s a lovely aircraft and I have been lucky to see it flypast on a few occasions.

The tri survived with just a little mud in the ally tubing on the tail, I just reattached the battery and flew off again. Sadly no RTL or anything fancy as it';s just a KK 2.0 board.

XH558 is awesome, shear poetry in the skies - probably the most iconic aircraft ever made. That sweet spot noise is lovely, but my favourite is the Saab Vigen when the afterburners kick in during take off - nearly as nice as the sound a 427 Corvette with lake pipes on makes!


Both wonderful, but another favourite of mine:
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

.....and a Vulcan has actualled been rolled (Farnboro exhibish many years ago)....AWESOME.
Let's be careful out there.
SAFETY is.. NO accident.

Here';s a shot of one I took at our local air museum at East Fortune, you feel its half the size of a football field when you walk under them :)
