Time for a new video in this thread.

Got my new Discovery together the other day. Took it for a quick test flight at Port Melbourne. Needs to have the gains reduced a fraction, but overall I'm pretty happy with its performance. GoPro has a Sunnex lens, which is a little narrow for low-level runs...

Enjoy

Port Melbourne Beach Runs (1 min 36 sec)

Yah.....it's 2.18am. Just finished my first Quad build. DJI Flame Wheel 450, with Naza and GPS.

Easy to build kit. The Naza controller programming was new to me and discovered getting the whole setup done in the right order is necessary.

Anyway, it's all done and even had a quick low level test flight in the back yard just now.

Looking forward to testing it out in some open space. Goodnight Australia...........

Here's a couple quick clips drawn from a very rough-air flight over Mt Buffalo.

It's a damn shame Monday has a crap forecast through the week!

Was looking forward to flying off the hill over BW.
