after a lot of work on Electronic and Frame we are happy to present first flight test of VRCopter complete of VR 2 Axis Gimbal .
In this fly we test this Copter configuration :
In this test flight I checked the behavior of the drone in different situations both at high altitude I flew about 50 m high and low altitude.
The video that is present in raw format created with the GOPRO 3 silver model you do not notice the presence of high-frequency vibrations, which were removed by introducing a special anti vibrating plate inserted between the frame of the drone and the gimbal . There are only some low-frequency vibrations due to the influence of the wind at high altitude on the mechanics of the gopro gimbal frame we're still working to improve it further.
Overall, we think that this platform can be an interesting alternative to cars like the Phantom of the DJI is that in the previous version thanks to a range of great flight almost 20 minutes.
This drone configuration will be available in DIY KIT before the end of year in the next week will be available more info about it
