Hey again all DIY'rs, hope you are all well and having as much fun flying as we are!

Just a very quick one here, we've just uploaded a short clip of the new SteadiDrone QU4D. After taking it out for a few hours where we really through it around hard, we must say it's a pretty sweet solid quad. We've spent many hours trying to make this the easiest and most practical quadcopter to use and travel with, as high performance and feature rich as we could possible make it for what we think is a pretty good price point for a fully RTF kit with it's unique features.

As with all our systems, it's flying the trusted ArduCopter code and altough we did have a few crashes (as you'l see in the video) they were due to us having a little too much fun, no technial issues at all. Anywoo, for more info, specs etc have a look at the website www.steadidrone.com

Here's the clip, please let us know your thoughts and comments, we hope you like it as much as we do. Thanks again to all the devs for the great code!

over and out.

Really really good video, I even like the music. :)

The vibration damping for the GoPro is... moderately effective. I wouldn't call that jello free, but it's pretty decent for a fun FPV machine, hobby use, etc.

I like that frame a lot though.  I could see myself using that for some applications.  And I'm going to ping Leonard as I know he was looking for a folding quad.

Love the water drag at 1:42, nice video production :D

Really really awesome video.  I like that quad a lot, but I think a bit more can be done on the vibration isolation.  Jello bugs me to no end. If that video had no jello, I probably would be buying one today

Hey guys, thanks for the comments :)

R_Lefebvre - We're still fint tuning the vibration damping mount and should get it much better with some further testing, it's already miles better than most other systems that don't have full gimbals, even with some 2/3 axis gimbals what we're getting here is pretty good, and will only get better.

Paul - We are busy setting up US ditro yes, but in the meantime you can get directly at the website.

Janathan - Thanks for the feedback, as mentioned above, we are still tweaking and playing around with the gimbal mount, it will only get better..

Thanks again guys, any other feedback/comments welcome.

Hi Duran,

Another great video! I like your designs and will send you a PM in case you're interested in getting some of your copters CAA certified here in South Africa.
