Very impressive HD video footage from my friend's Panya's custom home made mini H quad with the new Mobius Action Camera - from the makers of the original Keychain Cam. Using wooden arms and Simonk'd 12Amp HK-BS ESCs and myrcmart's 2400KV ZMR motors with a multiwii lite FC, this little H frame is a wonderful video and FPV platform. In the video you can see my ZMR…Continue
A very Successful test of the DroidPlanner Android App, connected through a 3DR Radio Kit and the 3DR APM2.5
Before taking off, I ensured that there is a proper connection between the APM and the Tablet and that both devices's GPS is locked. Then I take the drone up and put it in Loiter mode.

Testing my fully charged HaiYin 5000mAh 4S 30-40c battery. Almost 17 minutes of mostly Loiter mode flying and a bit of manual flying towards the end.
I managed to test the Altitude Hold and Loiter functions of my ArduPilot Mega2 controlled Hexacopter and was pretty impressed with it. There was strong winds initially but when it died down to a breeze I turned on the altitude hold and it seemed to hover with a deviation of around 2m. Then when I turned on the Loiter mode, my hexacopter stayed within a 5m radius…Continue
