Quadcopter Case

Hey guys!

Put together this travel case this week. Heading to Cancun in three weeks and needed an easy way to take everything with me. haha.

I have to say, this works awesome. Tons of protection, tons of space and still around 43-47lbs fully loaded.

Cheers.

Hello All,
I am looking for someone in the greater Seattle area who owns/flies a witespy quad. I recently bought one and could not get any greener and could use some help. I found this site a few days ago and literally haven't left yet other than for sleep, food, bathroom. The amount of information is unending.
A witespy specific contact would be best, but I know someone with multicopterwii knowledge could help tremendously as well.
I don't have a specific question, but after reading a lot of posts I know that I am not flying this thing correctly. Also, I would like to get involved with the local groups, etc.

thanks in advance
You can contact me on here or waynecayko@gmail.com

Sure did! That Flip looks like it would be a blast!

I made a quick vid last night. enjoy!

Thank you!
I definitely would like a few of those props!

Thanks for the heads up on those props! Couldn't have came at a better time!! I picked up a set for the quad just now.

Great job! Nice seeing the wind turbines in the background. Reminds me of driving down Rt 41 heading to Purdue to see the kids. Also, I`m quite impressed with the video quality of the Horyzon camera!

I love the stacked style of that case! It must have cost quite a bit especially if it's a pelican.
I use two cases at the moment one for the TX (what it came with) and I bought a seperate case for my charging units. I don't have anything for the quad but I was thinking of hooking some fasteners on top of my TX case so I can strap the feet of the quad onto and have less to carry and it would act as a platform while in the car keeping it from moving around and want not. Here are some pics of my charging case.

Thank you! That is the road I live off of!
I really like the Horyzon cam, no jelly, fisheye and NO weight! It has a crispness that really doesn't show up in this video probably because of the weather. When the sun is really out everything looks vibrant. I'm pleased with the purchase.

I made another video right before sunset today using just the Horyzon HD camera for those who maybe interested in that camera. This video was shot entirely by line of sight so I didn't go to far from home. I can't wait to get goggles so I can venture out a little further! Happy viewing!

I wish you hadn't posted this because now I want a new camera! Super smooth! Are you using stabilization software?

I love the Horyzon. HD camera. The low light capabilities and white balance work great in just about every environment. Nice vid.

Thanks everyone!
This has been my go to camera out of all the multiple cameras that I own to include GoPro 1 & 2. I feel that it's given me the best footage out of all of them.
@nike25, Sorry pal! I just watched YouTube's version of my footage this morning. "Are you using stabilization software?" I did use YouTube's enhancement but after comparing the two I don't see too much of a difference other than it took a couple of my lever + wind twitches out. I purposely went slower on my flight as not to upset the stomach of the viewer!
I've got that cam sandwiched good & tight between top and bottom extension tabs which helps tremendously with any vibration.
Here's a pic showing you what I mean.

I don't know what's going on at RCGroup but every time I load a pic it ends up upside down? I've switched computers so I'm not sure?
