I will add pics/info as I go. I will also add links to videos that I find useful.

A little background info on me.
I have been flying RC airplanes since January 1996.
In Feb 2007 I took my first aerial photography with an RC airplane. Now I use DJI multirotors to do my aerial photography and aerial videos.


My F550 has T-Motor MN3110-15 kv is 780 Navigator Series. The props are T-Motor 10x4.5
Gains on 550 with T-Motor props. T-Motor props require much lower gains than any other prop I have tried. And I have tried a lot.
Basic, pitch 100%, roll 100%, yaw 100%, vertical 100%.
Attitude, pitch 60%, roll 60%.

My 450 LEDs are : The lights I used were Turnigy. Item TRU8944 white. And TRU8941 red.
Each 1 meter strip has the leads attached!

After my family and my faith, I have two passions in life – slope flying and RC aerial photography.
I love all things flying and aviation related and I obtained my private pilots license in 1994 at John Wayne Airport, in Orange County California. I have done some skydiving but today, I don’t do either of those as much as I used to. Instead, I’ve found a real passion for slope flying and RC aerial photography. Started flying RC airplanes in January 1996.
In March 2007 I took my first aerial photography with an RC airplane. I now use DJI multi rotors also known as RC Drones to do most of my aerial photography.
I have also been blessed through the hobby by meeting some really great people becoming friends with many of them.

God Bless.

My method of operation on RC Groups & Why I do it.

1. Share my thoughts with humility.
"Don't try to act important but enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don't think you know it all "
Romans 12:16 (NLV)
"Never let selfishness or pride be your guide. Instead, be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others "
Philippians 2:3-4 (NCV)
2. Respect others ideas with courtesy.
"We must bear the burden of being considerate of the doubts and fears of others..." Romans 15:2 (LB)
3. Share others problems with sympathy.
"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. "
Galatians 6:2 (NIV)
4. Encourage each other with accountability.
"Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. "
Hebrews 10:24 (NIV)
5. Always be motivated by love. Not by ego, pride, or materialism.
You must be motivated by love or you will treat people as projects. Treat them as people, as friends.
"Everything you do must be done with love. "
1 Corinthians 16:14 (NLT)
"Let love be your highest goal."
1 Corinthians 14:1 (NLT)

Why I do it.......because I like to help people.
And because I enjoy sharing my hobby with other people that enjoy this hobby.

Dave
