I like your approach. Full scale aviation has adopted its practices through more than 100 years of trial and error & continuous improvement. There must be a lot of wisdom in it.

"Thanks for support!
Can someone explain how motors can start at full speed when powering FC? How that can be prevented?
My accident scenario is easy to reproduce. What is the propability of my accident? Someone should setup a secured test bench....…"
I wanted to share my experience to help & protect you all. No multicopter is worth personal damage & stitches.BackgroundWe have been building & testing ardu-based octa-V craft. Part of the challenge has been power usage / high amperage. Orginally we…
Our OctaV project is progressing. Now it was time to test the gimball with Gopro. The end result was surprisingly good.We still have challenges with the basic flight. The amperage is quite high - 2x 20C 4ah 3S lipos are at their limit. We could add…
Our target is to have a multicopterto capture smooth video --> choose to make a flying steadycamto have redundancy for safety--> choose an octa / 8 motor configuration.V-frame was chosen over X-frame due to better fit with with steadycam.Arducopter…
"Please do following to convinse us that this is not fake
1) add 2 long colorful paper stips to your copper
2) fly in daylight
3) move the copper on the flight so that you can also see other perspectives than just the figure on the sky
4) move the…"
"Chris good work!
We all need to be active and demostrate the hobbyside, diy-attitude, innovation, science, - all the good side of drones.
I always discuss with people when flying my arducopter. People are interested and in a positive way. Let's…"
"1) A fast crash- I wonder what happend in here?
Video: http://youtu.be/mdfObwQ06vs?t=2m13s (starting at the crash)
Also at 48s you can hear a sudden burst & roll direction change. That was caused by FC.
My take on the video + logs would be that…"
"Had a test flight with 2.9. Only hover + ALT hold.
All works smoothly. Thank you!
I turned the rate P sligtly down. I want the hexa to be rather smooth for video use.
One feature has appeared: When putting alt hold on, the hexa drops 1 meter down…"
