Calm day, all was going well and then it went into brick mode...There is a audible click at 19 seconds, could this be the broken blade hitting the camera/frame?

Face-plant on take off:

I bolted on my 8 inch blades and headed for the park to see how things felt...It was a bit gusty today so I probably needed a bit more revs to get away from the ground - on the positive side: it has been raining so much here that the grass is long and the ground is a bog, so no harm done to the blades- only my pride...again

I did about 7 minutes flying, but because of the wind it was hard to tell what change there was. I gave the gimbal a good workout and will post some of the flight soon.

DJI 10 inch props, 3S-5000mAh, Quadframe 200mm Landing gear.

Sorry for the short clip, but I had the camera on the ground and it was out of shot for most of the clip anyway it was just a lift test, I will go for a better/ longer video with 8 inch blades, soon.

Decided to add some pics of my attempts at a FlyClops...

It has a GoPro2 and a Canon G11 (with interval timer)

Results are mixed, sometimes jello with the GoPro and and motion blur with the images. Seems to be more noticeable when looking straight down...

I am going to try 8 inch blades and see if I get any better results.
