Liking the "dead cat" design myself - my poor man';s TBS Discovery ::) I';ve been thinking about all of the kind advice above and reckon that I will indeed switch cameras to a more "conventional" setup soon. I have two options, a #16 keychain camera that I was going to mount on my regular DJI-like Firefly (a Flamewheen clone bought from Fruitsalad running an APM 2.5 FC). Or I have a Sony CCD 700TVL that I';d bought in anticipation a while back - it was dirt cheap, brand new. The Sony needs 12v which I';ll probably run from a 850mAh 3S that I';d bought for the purpose (more weight). I';ve got a Talon brushless gimbal to fix up in due course. Worrying about the weight and capability of a quad I';m wondering whether or not I should switch to a hex build. All in, with a gimbal and long landing legs my rig will be knocking on for 3kg, it won';t fly well (or for long) I don';t think. I can see me going through several iterations of design/build before I settle on something. But thats a good half of the fun of this lark The plan now is to get out for some air time on Saturday.

Quote from: Hands0n on Thursday,October 10, 2013, 17:21:43 Ah, yes, haven';t had that happen to me yet. The GP';s battery is supposed to last just about an hour IIRC. I have two spares, charged up, and tend to carry around one of those USB LiIon battery packs to top up my mobile phone, it has plenty of capacity to top up the GP';s battery should I need it. I';m a bit of a power junkie it seems
