You won't need a whole lot a space to launch and land.

After many flights with my DIY frame consisting of 3DR Electronics stack and Landings legs, all the other parts are homemade form aluminium, i thought it's about time to launch from my balcony and take a spin down to the lake...


How easy was that...

Excellent good control and you did it out your back door in your socks even were you FPV or visual?

Very nice control there Michael and loved the protective footwear. (:

What camera are you using, it's amazingly clear in full screen mode! Great video and even better flying!

Excellent flight and stable video. Did your heart rate increase just a little?

To be honest, I was not thinking about the footwear (socks are kind of protective after all :-)). flying back to the balcony with a steady descending rate was kind of nerve recking once I stepped towards the drone to catch it I had to let go of all controls except yaw and throttle. Worst case would have been to simply full throttle and go around.

Excellent vid Michael, beautiful slice of the world you live in. Can you put her down on the water with that landing gear? Well done!!
