Kloner: Did you see the flare at the end of my last video? It didn't stall until it was like going 3mph!

still same motors esc and prop? i have no idea what it's like flat dumping weight on something like this. should it be supported any different across the span or just treat it like a scale plane and make it all very slow deliberate turns, low g's, etc?

I want some nice clean footaqe and the ride you get on these things is just too cool to not use. feels like a fighter jet flying it fpv

Any ideas what that kinda weight does to stall speed? I fly in the desert in so cal, the ground is rocks, dirt, every once in a while i drive to pavement and it's 1" asphault, pretty much like a freeway rough. Trying to decide what to do and how fast shes gonna have to hit the ground is kinda everything. I shoot in on sand bars too

this to this, watch the ends,,,, that's the 2 main spots i go

Dude, that is cool. But I been asking for a GoPro for about 3 months and now today, I am getting one.
My wife would beat me silly if I bought a 398 dollar camera for my plane.
Yep , I am whipped guys!

I'm just looking to move into the aerial imaging business as it becomes an option and want to be on the front lines already doing it. It's gone past for fun.

Aerial Video of 3D Scratch Built 3D foamy Sony Nex-5n Fresno Field HoverFly (3 min 48 sec)


survey pictures, real estate videos, stock footage of proximity flights, things like that. this ting goes straight on the zenmuse gimble from DJI too and is ran from the remote control. one wing, one s800 and kloners on his way

Hello lads,

So had my Z2 maiden today and although there was a bit of wind, I reckon it bounced around just too much. A lot of tail wag yawing. Common? I have zero play in my servos, so not sure what's going on, but was pretty bumpy.

Symptom of tail heavy maybe?
