Suicide mission ;-)



The fun stuff starts around 1.30 ..


This is what can easily happen when too confident and not enough prepared, when you get caught in some unexpected altitude windstream, even a little one


To sum it up .. suicide mission ; Had no fpv, no lights, no simple or rtl mode programmed


The panasonic was found split in two, but amazingly , the copter only bent one arm; i repaired since then . Am now waiting for a brand new gopro hero2 and a brand new 5.8gzhvideo rx/tx ; The one i had refused to start (old 1.3ghz ), made me loose patience and take off anyways there up .. will not do again :)

Proud to post my first blog post yay !


Well ok its only eyecandy, but i hope you'll get a 2min break of what you're doing and a little smile maybe laughing at the noob, hehe ^^ fair enough !


So today i received 2 more lipos so i could finally have a proper longer flight session and could setup some cams to finally do some video recording for post analysis (yeah, to analyse stuff , whatever ill get ^^);


So i got now 2 x4500mah 45c  and 1 x 5000mah 40c   .. circa 30min flight :))


Soldered xt60 connectors to the brand new lipos, recharged and then wiiiizzz !



Beautifull, aerial, Pure joy !

no tests, no experiment, nothing but a delicious manual free run on stabilize, aaahh :)


Well, ok, it didn't end like i wanted, but anyways , was great !!


1 and 3/4 lipo later :



Conclusion : Sharp aggressive jibe + 12" black basic propeller = heavy load, high bending  and probable snap .. lesson learned and ordered straight away 6 epoxy props.


Will retry and see what'll happen ! :D


Any comments on any aspects of all this are welcome !

Until next time, thanks for watching !
