Cool
First video of my TBS Discovery

Weather got good, decided to finally get my quad out and do my first video test!

I'm pleased there is no jello but seems far too twitchy, tuning is needed!

Let me know what you think, Thanks

Wow, Cambridge Chalk Pits! That brings back some memories, I just assumed that they had been developed like everything else in Cambridge. Next time I'm back in Cambridge with a quadcopter I know where I will be heading.

Were you flying FPV?

A quick question, you can see a few times in the vid when I stop accelerating forward it flicks upwards quite sharply. Now is that my piloting (not being slow/smooth enough) or the gains?

Thanks

It's probably a bit of both. If you fly forward in a straight line and then want to come to a stop then the only way to achieve it is for it to flick up a bit like that. If you feel that you're not really being that aggressive on the sticks compared to what you're seeing, then you probably want to have a look at your settings.

Thanks for your advice. So in a case where I want to change settings, I have setup a dual rates switch on my TX, I could use the dials on my controller once the switch is switched on?
