Hallo Michael,

ich habe einen Hexacopter mit APM 1 im Eigenbau, bin aus Konstanz und absoluter Neuling.

Ich würde gerne mit Ihnen einige Erfahrungen austauschen. Da ich Neuling bin ist es warscheinlich anfangs etwas Einseitig, ich hoffe aber, dass sich das bald ändern wird und Sie nicht stört.

Mein Hex soll hauptsächlich für Videoaufnahmen sein und natürlich mit Spaß am fliegen.

Wenn wir uns evtl. auch mal treffen könnten würde ich mich freuen.

MfG

Mario
