yep id try LVC off on all esc first only takes a few minites to do make up a servo lead that splits from 1 into 4 so you can do all 4 at the same time.

e.
Mine's still the fastest I think, 1m21s
don't split S, I looked at the speed on the return leg of the previous go, I think it's waste of altitude

I volunteer my FJ for the piggy back ride, take me to 3000m and I'll climb the rest


anyone got an FPV micro plane to put on the funjet?

I think my Cularis could lug your FJ up pretty high, 4s powered makes it zoom

Edit: Iplayer is so F%^$ stupid, click on the link to the One Show and it shows me live Eastenders (PUKE). Stupid slow broken Iplayer...

Yep I do agree. But there was one that had GPS and direct computer control like the DJI Wookong system. He'll even the Naza board is more stable thanost of theirs. Do like the idea of a proper IR camera set up. That would be cool.

Missed the one show and I player isn't up and running to show it yet. Isn't it funny how we watch these shows to see how the experts do it and yet most of them arnt any where near as good as ours.

Perhaps we should look at starting up a joint venture and show them how it's done. :-)
