If nothing else, you've created a sound that thoroughly confuses all four of my dogs. That's unique--I can rarely get the attention of more than two of them with the same sound.
New ringtone for your phone then ?
That's the funniest video I have seen in ages.
Well comedy wasn't my goal, but glad to have entertained you one way or the other
when you were talking about taking aerial shots of yourself while riding, I just sat there shaking my head.
haha yes it's obviously going going to be possible for me to ride and fly and the same time, though I had hoped to get it in a moderately high stable hover for some static aerial shots. I won't be able to do any proper riding with it unless I for out for the GPS module and program it autopilot through set waypoints etc
These quads are heaps easier to fly then a chopper but you still need to know how to fly.
Yeah they look easy to fly but I'm sure it's deceptive. I'd have thought that it'd atleast hover around with a heap of throttle alone...
I didn't know such things existed, that's pretty cool! I got the turnigy 9X which is overkill for this setup but it wasn't much more and figured I might use the other channels for something else later (spotlights, drop bombs
, pan/tilt camera mechanisms etc
By the way, you need to carefully balance your props. That buzzing was one of the props distorting and causing a high frequency imbalance. This will play havoc with your gyros and other electronics. No way will it fly like that.
Cool thanks for the tip. I know unbalanced props upset them but I didn't know it'd be that much.
I still suspect the ESC calibration is out.
It seemed to calibrate the first time (after some trial and error) but I can't get it to do it again single.
The full throttle cal seems OK but when I then set it back to idle I dont think it's calibrating properly.
It's doing all sorts of beeping at me and of course the manual says something like "hold it at full throttle until you hear the full throttle calibration confirmation" WTF is that ? The thing is beeping all sorts of things at me like a bloody R2D2 on speed
