HiCould very close placement affect each other to the point of causing interference or weakening the signal?flight rx antennae are quite close to the 600mw 5.8 video tx.  Most importantly could the…Continue

Underwater Quadcopter

HiThis may sound crazy.  How about a quadcopter designed for underwater use.  Brushless motors operate perfectly well submerged and the rest can be waterproofed quite easily.  Idea being that one…Continue

"Great video, I will reiterate though getting live video stream from that camera will be impossible over radio link once you are more than a jiffy under the surface and if the controls are on 2.4ghz then they will not be far behind..."

"yes sure, it's to do with the frequency that they operate at.  Eflite esc don't arm at anything more than 150hz, well that was 3 years ago, not sure about the new ones.   When I was using apm1 I had that problem but changed…"

"Hi, I have the e-flite esc as well, and have the same problem of arming the motors. Do you think you can help me on how you solve the issue?"

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Been flying RC planes for 10 years now, decided to move onto quadcopters in 2011 and have since built 11 copters of various sizes using various flight controllers. I build from the ground up slowly making improvements here and there with each new build. Started with FPV in 2012 and since then only fly in this manner. Preferred frequency is 5.8 since it doesn't clash with 2.4 radio link. Luckily I've had few mishaps of which all were pilot error. I believe that spending time on the build paying attention to solder joints and other details are key to a smooth flying machine.
