Very nice, do you have any aerial footage from it that you can show us?
Thanks

Waiting for some parts for the mount so I can operate it correctly, and finding the time to shoot some. Right now I am dealing with a hand injury so not really wanting to do any flying in the cold weather. We will get some footage soon

I hope thats correct.
The GPS z value should be -5.

Testing is continuing using different motors and esc's to find the optimal cost vs efficency vs proper working unit.
Thanks for the info. I could have sworn that the video has no post.
Nice motors, the first time I see them. Every day I learn more in this great forum!

I understand this point.
So, I will not have manual mode after this?

I apologize for my lack of knowledge. One thing I learned is that you better be sure asking a lot before having a crash. Thanks again!

Thanks Gary. I was really curious what radio control system you would trust to fly such an expensive camera and machine.

The 9503 has served m well before that I used the 9303 with no issues. As far as the camera I have flown much more expensive cameras, I guess you just get used to it

Manual mode is pretty useless anyway I think. Except for earlier software versions when there was immediate motor stop only in this mode
