So I picked this up the other day at my LHS when buying a folding prop, I got to say this thing is a blast to fly around while working in the office. Sure is tiny and fast. I haven't got much work done the last few days....

So with the build of the X-8 I wanted to launch it off a catapult system, so here is what I came up with. I need to add the arms and set the tension on the bungees as well as a foot pedal, and it should be ready.

The X-8 is ready for the APM autopilot system to be installed. I ordered it yesterday the 7th. So it's just a waiting game at this point. Time to read up on the set up.

So I get home and look what the UPS guy left for me. I plan on setting this bird up with all the bells and whistles, First I am going to give it a carbon fiber look, and then set it up with the APM autopilot and thermal camera gear on board. Stay tuned

I was lucky enough to get to be the Test Pilot on this beast.

Test flight of a Sky hero octocopter (6 min 56 sec)


Once I had the Tech turn off the forward tracking it flew nice. I also had to turn the GPS off as it made the machine bobble once in a while.
