"I just got it to hover a few minutes ago... so I'll try and get some flight video in the morning I think you are right, we should do something, the hoop and ring are too good for only a handful of us... The feeling of the rim is grace and…"

"Very nice! Would enjoy seeing some video of that flying. I'm guessing it flies like a banshee. Like that you leveraged the stiffness of the rim and went with the parallel center supports. Do you notice in differences in flight characteristics…"

"Jake, Are you using simple mode? If so, your compass could maybe be put of by interference and change direction as you are applying throttle. This makes things seam very strange."

DIYDrones in the press - The California Report (KQED audio)

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 5:26pm 1 Comment
