The bench did see tons of hobby related stuff in all this time, unfortunately I never really recovered from the transmitter failure series that almost destroyed the entire fleet until I found the problem, so the shaking is still there when I only think about flying.
As said before I have more hobbies than sparetime and the bench is still in use for many different reasons, one of them can be seen in activity on the link below, still working on it but the results from prototype III are not too bad, judge by yourself

My first completed scratch build from plans. I chose the Bandito based on size, relatively simple design and lack of a formed cowl, and its sport flyer claim. Converted to electric, it came in right at 5lbs ready to fly.

I like having the magazine on hand, so I bought the back issue on eBay and had the plans enlarged at a local copy shop. I started on the wings. They are constant chord, but required two templates. The inner few ribs are sheeted, so they are slightly smaller to accommodate it.

Drone mapping is an awesome hobby to get into, you get enjoy the outdoors, try different flying locations all the time and use the technology to produce useful, actionable deliverables. It's not always a pleasurable experience, most of the time it's a real challenge but that's what sets it apart from normal RC flying and that's why I love it.

I am by no means and expert in any of the below areas - I just like to consider myself a 'drone enthusiast', and as such I'm sharing some of my experiences so that new comers to the hobby may get into it faster, with less hassles and more successes.

There are four main factors to consider:
Air frame
Sensors
Flight Planning
Image Processing

I'm not going to pitch this article at a reader that knows nothing about RC or drones, this is focused on the hobbyist or prosumer that is interested in doing aerial mapping and has some understanding of drones, model flight and the regulations in your region.

Well so much for trying to post once a week!
We took some time away and met up with cousins we haven't seen in 37+years!
It was absolutely fantastic to say the least!!

So I have now got the hull all glued up. I can not say enough good things about the time and effort that Garry Webb has put into these plans and patterns. Everything went quick and fit nicely with very little trimming to fit, and I am somewhat fussy, so

CHEERS TO GARY WEBB!

I have decided that I will lay the teak deck AFTER the deck is bonded to the hull, it may just save a whole lot of grief! (And if I get too anxious to get her in the water,
paint the deck)

Here is the original Minivet camera software. There is an option to set/disable "loop recording" (in the new software this option is not any more).

Here is this week's flight with my new Goblin 700--I didn't do a great job on my video editing, so sorry about that

This is my 4th flight on the Goblin. I love the stability of such a large heli--I am flying with a Bavarian Demon 3sx FBL and 12S 5000mah Glacier stick packs. Im learning slowly but loving every minute of it!
