Patrice, Je pense qu'il ta demande combien de temps as-tu faire loiter mode?  Aussi, ce jeune garçon apparu peur de la v8,  tu doit pratiquer la prudence un peu plus dans le parc:)   Bon voleur :)

Patrice, nice setup.

I don't feel confortable flying so close to people.... bugs exist in the code and unexpected behaviour can happen any time with no prior alert... 

Please be careful... diydrones don't want to be in the news, or at least not in this way :)

+1 to Jose Angel warning.

Where can I find plans for a Octa V frame?

 

Keep flying, carefuly

IS, as you probably know the octa-v layout is in the wiki:

Dani Saez from Barcelona also has an octa-v... you can also ask him about his setup

@Jose: Thx for the info.

A little of topic but is there any advantage of the octa V frame over the normal octagonal  frame?

I'd say that it's advantage is keeping payload (ie. a camera) as compact as possible around the control hardware. The V lets you mount your camera up close to the same plane that the IMU lies in while avoiding getting your props in the shot.

i've made my OCTAV with 1 meter square alu branch (all branch are 1 meter).

the central board with 3mm epoxy.

I put neoprene Glue under the central epoxy to absorb vibration. I have a little tissu under the APM board.

The baro has coton above it also.

With 3 Ah 3S battery i 've flown 5 mn and i stop.

Can i put 2 Lithium  Battery in parallel ? Someone know ?
