Flights of my UDI U12A R/C Camera Helicopter

This thread will be for nothing but aerial videos of flights of my UDI U12A R/C Camera Helicopter and any replies.

Let's get moving, shall we?

UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli maiden flights 04-15-15 (10 min 7 sec)


UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli maiden flights 04-15-15.

Flights took place near my home near the intersection of Holman St. and Dearborn Ave. in Shelton WA. USA on the early-evening of 04-15-15 (or, "2015 15 Apr." or even, "April 15, Twenty Stick-Bent-Stick if you prefer).
Weather conditions at flight time were fair, temperature of 55°F (12.8°C), and winds generally calm with gusts out of the ENE at 8mph (6.92kts, 12.88kph).

The asshat (***NOT*** 'assbonnet'!) in the white shirt is the pilot -- me of course.

More info. about the UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli on my website in its eval. at http://www.ledmuseum.net/48/udi-u12a.htm

UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli flight 04-16-15 (1) (5 min 37 sec)


UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli flight 04-16-15 (1).

Flight took place near my home near the intersection of Holman St. and Dearborn Ave. in Shelton WA. USA on the morning of 04-16-15 (or, "2015 16 Apr." or even, "April 16, Twenty Stick-Bent-Stick if you prefer).

Weather conditions at flight time were clear, temperature of 31F (-0.5C), and winds calm.

The "homosexicle" in the black & grey checkered jacket is the pilot -- me of course.

I attached two quarters, a nickel (a United States 25¢ coin and a United States 5¢ coin, respectively), two CR2032 lithium coin cells, and an AA cell to the front of the canopy in order to give it some additional forward velocity and make it better able to fight minor headwinds -- but the heli needs even more weight in the front. Needless to say though, I had an excellent flight -- just wish I had a bit more forward velocity.

UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli flight 04-17-15 (1) (5 min 5 sec)


UDI U12A R/C Camera Heli flight 04-17-15 (1).

Flight took place over a vacant lot near the intersection of Ellinor Ave. and Olympic Hwy. N. in Shelton WA. USA on the morning of 04-17-15 (or, "2015 17 Apr." or even, "April 17, Twenty Stick-Bent-Stick if you prefer).

Weather conditions at flight time were clear, temperature of 36F (2.2C), and winds calm.

The asshaberdasher in the black & grey checkered jacket is the pilot -- me of course. ;-)

I removed all of the weight that I affixed to the front of the canopy after noting that the heli had a bit of trouble gaining altitude; this resulted in the flight looking extremely slow. My next step will be to increase the pitch of the tail rotor with a cigarette lighter; I have a
spare handy in the event that things become fuxxored as a result.
