I am beginning to wonder if quads are a new type of drug? I've been busy this last week. I upgraded my Gaui 330X to a Flame Wheel F450 ARF. Basically it was a matter of building the F450 and then transferring over the electronics. I wanted a larger platform to mount a camera on to.

Guys, I have to tell you. GPS is really, really sweet. I have been testing things out in the driveway. It is incredible to take a quad up to a hundred feet or so and just leave it there. The Naza flight controller holds the altitude and the GPS holds the position. Just for the heck of it, I did the video ad thing of setting the tx on the ground while the quad was holding steady at about seventy five feet. I am impressed.

Tomorrow, if Mother Nature is on my side, it is off to the club field! Technology is truly amazing.

All the video I have is of shots taken from the quad. These were 99% auto flights of the quad flying itself. If you would like, I can post one on my facebook page.

Okay. In order to keep you guys happy, here are a couple of videos from the quad. Nothing professional here but you should get the idea.

F450 July1A (11 min 44 sec)


F450 July 1B (13 min 40 sec)

Hey Raz! What is with this little orange tag by your name and the designation "RCG Plus" ? Is that due to volume of posting? Weren't you the same guy that got himself banned from here about 18 months ago? Now you are a model citizen? Go figure.

Yes I remember we all had to plead his case back then.

But we got him back and straightened him out.

^^Ryan, I clicked your little '+' sign and have come to learn that you are one of RCG's 'most prolific and trusted users'

They must have contacted you about this? Come on, what's going on? Are you getting free stuff? I bet you're sworn to secrecy!

I don't know about you guys around here. This place used to be "discussion central" around here. Now it is getting as quiet as a tomb. Come on guys! Its summer time. We should be in the air and talking about what we are doing. We should be giving Raz pointers on "alternate resource allocation". He is married now and he need to "find" money for our hobby. More of you guys need to get into quads. Where is the heli contingent around here?

Raz, go find Barak and invite him over. That would always be good for about three dozen arguements.
