For an extra $10 that is a good buy too. I probably should have spent the extra $10 to be honest

It blows my mind all the time that as soon as you mention military, companies charge like wounded buffalo!!

I read somewhere that the USA military spent something like $20Mil on some multirotor drones. I reckon any number of us on here could have supplied the same speced machines, for 5% of the price.

Unbelievable!!!

I could not agree more but that's just not how the tender process works.

$193,000 per helicopter!! Nice bit of pocket money.

I'm sure most of that money went into R&D such as the very high-tech "wind gust response" test.

Someone, in the last few weeks, posted his brilliant idea of mounting a gopro onto a quad/hex using servos & rubber bands. It was stable & simple & I thought I had bookmarked it....But....
Anyone got it?

Thanks Witt! I'll take the "old" bit as a well earned compliment lol Cheers mate!
Prob the only thing that needs improvement in said life, is that by this stage I was hoping to have less work hours and more build & flying hours... such is the challenge of life I guess

dunno about rubber bands but I do know of a camera gimble on 2 servos connected to a base plate by fuel hose...
Soon i hope to have my kk2 board in one of my quads, once that is trimmed out I'll try the Super Simple Gimble, otherwise known as the SSG

Quick & the dead, Mongrel!

I'm just flying with the Arduflyer board and GPS so far on my little F330. RTL works awesome. Tried a transmitter off failsafe today, was really cool, flew home, landed and disarmed itself. Really spun out and impressed the onlookers at my club.
Hey Mouse,

I don't "need" the telemetry though... do I??
