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  ~~

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

I took my FPV hex up to the Caton Windmills for the first time ever. There';s some nice scenery up there and some gulleys to fly through. I kept away from the windmills themselves because i don';t really want to get in the papers for doing something stupid...



Second video coming...
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

Nice one, Chris!

Do you have a lost model beeper?  I';d hate to search for your mini hex if for whatever reason,  went down and landed in the gorse bushes.

Cheers
Gav

Funny you should mention that...

I did lose the hex in the heather on the very next flight. It took me a good 10 mins to find it. Fortunately the ESCs are set to beep after 3 mins of no response so i found it based on that and a rough idea of where it went down.

I actually used the telemetry beeps on my transmitter to get a rough bearing as well - i lowered the transmitter down to ground level then positioned the aerial so that it was pointing directly away from roughly where the quad went down. When the transmitter was lined up so that the transmitter was between the aerials and the quad i was getting the weakest signal and the transmitter was beeping to let me know. I could scan backwards and forwards with the transmitter and i knew i was pointing at the downed quad when it was beeping the most.

Between these two methods i found it but i will be investing in a loud alarm before the next flight.
