Mid air collision with Dead Cat - TBS qauds. I saw Ro at the last second... by the time I started to react we had already hit.

FPV ☠ When Quads Collide! (1 min 17 sec)


DAMAGE REPORT

My Dead Cat
1 broken prop, 1 broken ball link connector.
Small crack on the top plate (fixable) does not affect flight

Ro's Tank TBS - Broken CF prop but still
was able to go up in the air to finish out that pack!!

Could have been worse... small price to pay for some FPV fun.

FPV Chase - remix (3 min 19 sec)


Lead Quad: Roberto - DeadCat frame with DJI arm mod, APM 2.5 arducopter 3.0.1
Chase Quad: Ro - TBS Disco, Naza M GPS

As you can see from my camera view (lead quad), I still need to sort out the dampening, just picked up some moongel so that should be fixed soon. This is my first true full flight doing low altitude close proximity FPV. I picked up this APM board and very glad I did so as previous attempts with KK2 where not successful, Just did not feel right for close proximity FPV.

Some more flights during the week:

Moved some models around to fit my 600,500 and 450 helis, even the F450 quad found a staging area on the wall. Looking pretty crowded but they are off the floor so that's good.

This is my latest color scheme design just out of production from AeroPlusRC for their EDGE 540 V3 35CC I had originally done the scheme for the Slick 540 but it got used on the Edge 540 V3.

Really enjoying flying my T-Rex 600!!! flew her today at a new place right across the street from the Starlight Bowl in Burbank CA. near work... there are some heli pads at the top of the hill, if it works for full scale helis it will work for my 600

these are the second and third color schemes that I've designed and that are going to production soon, the first was for the 91" Yak 54 from Extreme Flight and these two are for AeroPlusRC's Slick 540 coming up soon.

Maiden - Slow Stick with Aileron mod (5 min 48 sec)



Just about to leave the AMA Expo 2013 on the last day of the show at the end of the day when I picked up a used Slow Stick for $35... came with 3 wings one of which has LEDís on it along with LEDís on the fuse and tail feathers all in working order, two HS55 servos, ESC and motor. I made the aileron mod for the maiden why just go with 3 channels??

HS 55ís on Ele and Rud
HXT900ís on Ail
E-flite 30A ESC overkill since itís only pulling 18A static but thatís all I had since the ESC it came with (no heat shrink/label to ID it) was pretty much worthless.
NanoTech 1300 3s 25c pack all the way up the nose, or she also takes an 1800 butted up against the leading edge of the wing on the top of the fuse/stick to get the CG right and a 2s 360 to power the LEDs. directly in front of the LG on the bottom of the fuse/stick.
KMS Quantum 2212/09 1250KV
APC SF 9x3.8
