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

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

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 ~~

Rappy Freak

I m  glad you got them connecting what did you have to do ?
Looking forward to some pics and video later in the week  ~~

Rappy Freak

In the end I had to find a usb driver, unzip it (ended up having to download winzip) the install it.  After that everything seemed to work.  Will defo try and get back to it in the week.  ~~

Any update on your test flight Rappy  ;)

Rappy Freak

Yes we have an update.................it flies  ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

With few email and a chat on the phone with Alex from UAVshop it at last climbed into the air a stable hover, just as a big black cloud came over.  So no other flights yet.  I am hoping to get some pics of it in the air later and may be even a little bit of video from the camera mounted in the nose. 

I have just ordered the FPV tx, rx and lcd screen (not got any google yet ) so looking forward to that coming.  Its a shame I only have two set of batteries for it but will order some more later in the year. 

It has been a very interesting build it a shame this forum was not here when I started build as I could have done a build thread.  Still lots of little jobs to do but as soon as I can get out its play time  8)

Not the best pics in the world, taken from my phone.  Still a little bit left to do.

Looking good the skids look much stronger than mine, I fixed mine up the other day with new skids some glass fibre ones from HK, but I had a heavy landing on concrete and the new strong skids cracked the main frame plate  >:( its always the same you strengthen one thing the next thing in line will break  ::)

I cant tell from the picture is your made from nylon or fibre glass it looks like fibre glass but not sure ?

Rappy Freak

If the weather ever sorts itself out I will get some flying pics.

Strap your video camera to your head like I do  ::) but just make sure no one sees you, I had a right funny look of my neighbour when he saw me with my go pro strapped to my forehead  ;D

Rappy Freak

Aaaaaarrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhh wind go away I want to test my nose camera.  Think I will be taking this to work this week hoping for a good weather window.

The way the weather is going we should all be building an ark not a multi rotor  ;)

Gaza07

How about a multi rotor with a brolly on top for those rainy days  ;D

Rappy Freak

Hahaha thats not a bad idea.  Managed to get some video from the nose the other day, its only about 30 seconds worth.  In the end I took off in the workshop, went out the door a little then came back in.  You never know I may get some fottage this weekend
