Tricopter at night 06112010 (8 min 8 sec)


Did a bit of firework flying last night

Have now fitted a camera and 200mw 1.2g Vtx and as soon as I'm happy to fly this thing I'll have a go at FPV till then it's baby steps.

Still can't go clockwise yet.

This town..... arrrr arrr ... is looking like a ghost town!!

Where has everybody gone? I am hoping you are all furiously editing fantastic vids of flying thru flak... ahem... fireworks!

Got called out to do a whole host of family/friends/customer missions over the weekend and I have got to go out again tonight... It's been nearly 9 weeks since I flew. At this rate I might just have to bung one of my motors into the Zaggi and do a rough and ready install with no DL, no DOSD., no Ardui IMU.... just to use my goggles and prove to myself why I bought all this kit!!!!

Paul

There was some most excellent flying weather in between grim storms round here so what have you all been up to?

jeeeez mr pasty.... donnington is a slog for me and I am only just south of Oxford! must have taken you days to get there! Or is your track car road legal ;-) I used to front Time Attack and the EDC and Donnington is one of my fav roundy roundy venues, but why you chaps bother with corners is beyond me..... living life quarter mile at a time me :-)

Stealthy.... you seen Trappy's latest? OMG! I know he has been at it a while but man that takes some skill.

Hi ho.... would rather be filling my house with solder and cyno fumes but duty calls...

I took full advantage of the excellent flying weather over the weekend and got 8 flights in over the 2 days at 3 different locations tried to film brown dear in a brown field im shore I got them on film but cant see then dam natures camouflage and my crappy ccd killer cam where’s Owen and his hd cam when you need him lol. Did managed to chased some trains and cars buzz a farmer spraying his crops and some people walking along a foot path o and got kicked of a field I fly at by the game keeper who told me i was trespassing and was scaring the pheasant and if he saw my plane flying there again he would shoot it down with his shot gun charming fellow sounded like a fun game to me but was told if he was me he would off sharpish before the farmer got there ha ho all part of the fun.
