Hey Paul, great first flying with the new setup and a nifty frame to boot - finally no jello. I like the frame layout. Can the arms fold up if one of the two screws is removed?

Thanks Earl, unfortunately there was some jello but I cut those parts out... heh. I think the APC props were flexing a bit and might have been the cause. The arms don't fold up, it's a pretty permanent layout but there's lots of room to mount stuff.

Yeah, they probably DO have the thing tuned for the 10x5 Graupners which would also increase lift and decrease wallet thickness.

Here's my very first FPV video from this setup:

Yeah, I too am curious about building my own wire vibration mount. Haven't tried yet though.

Here is the first production video that my AP shots were used in. My wife and I did all the editing and filming....

Johnny Miller and the Tennessee Trio at the Newhalen River Gorge with Rainbow King Lodge (4 min 43 sec)


it was are first attempt at something this scale.


The HoverFly Gimbal was used on the main rig with Askman and Gary's AG700 prototype gimbal and on my backup rig that was flown was a HoverFly Pro Flight Controller and AG 500 gimbal.

Cameras were Sony Nex-5n, PJ710v

yeah, and the 18-55mm has Optical Image Stabilization which does well even with vibration (no jello)

I have used it in the past...

That looked great! Well done, liked the mix of shots and I really liked how the story progressed.
