Hadron flying at Oneida Lake fun fly. (10 min 52 sec)


I have been out of town, but I need to dial down the roll gain on the afromini, you can see at higher speed it rocks quite a bit, and I am sure that is wearing out the servos quickly.

It can actually fly fairly slow set like this.
Curious what you use the FC for. Ironically I have FPV on all my planes BUT my Hadron. That said, it does have a wide flight envelope. A giant Hadron would be the ticket

Stabilization and RTH. I forgot to add in the GPS ($20) in my breakdown. The RTH works great.

I'm jumping on the Hadron train. It's going to be an FPV bird to replace my worn out Stryker F27Q.
I'll be using an HET 2W-27 inrunner on 3S with a fixed mount.

Looking forward to the build

Why not leave the vectoring setup as is (it works great by the way) and just not enable the vector-to-rudder mix?

Then you can let your buddy use your FPV goggles and make him puke when you do a killer flat spin

I wanna keep things light, simple and I need the extra room inside the fuse for OSD, current sensor, etc.

That was my thought exactly. It flies great light!

I like both -- WOT on 4s into a super high upline followed by a wicked flat spin back down to earth
