I have some LEDs I have never used they are rated at 12v. (24- 6 inch strips) I hope they will be enough for my F450. Each strip plugs into the next so you can make a chain of LEDS-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6GY-...ature=youtu.be

No harm at all and a very good idea. Just trying to understand why you would be willing to toss out the battery because of no balance plug, especialy if you are using it for lights.
You owe me no explanation and can do as you like. Just wondering....................

Looks like a lot of battery for LED's unless you're flying a Christmas tree.
Average high intensity LED requires 20mA....

I guess you use what you have on hand some times

Looks like a typical naza flight.
Wobbly, worthless in the wind.
I don't think any amount of "gains" is going to help you much there.
Its fun to see people try, but you might be better off with a KKboard doing FPV. At least it will be fun and won't be fighting you.

tc, I take your challenge to produce a video without stabilization that will meet your standards. I will let the forum be the judge. You up for it? This is for a non-gimbal camera mount. Here are the conditions, I will use a stock DJI F450 frame with DJI motors and escs. I will be using Graupner props unless you object, then I will go with the DJI stock props. You have to use your controller with a frame, motor and escs of your choice. We both post pictures of our setups and video. What do you say?

I'm not sure what you're trying to prove. This is not about video, its about flying.
Clearly in the video above,
1) it wobbles during flying
2) it almost kills itself as soon as it hit by any kind of gust of wind

Both of those things are facts and are EXACTLY the same reaction I'm seeing on my setup.
No amount of "tuning" is going to fix that. It's broken by design.

Maybe you can educate the dude how to fix his wind death wobbles instead.
Would be much more productive way to spend your time.

Biggest problem is my quad. I turned down gains and it was much better. But model is to stable (M2M is 740mm), so it does not like too much pilot input...
I had on same model OP CC, but it was pain in ass, with naza it took me few flights and it was tuned to fly in atti mode.

@m_beeson
Thanks!
But this same country took my model next day... I did one stupid FPV mistake, I flew alone. When video signal got very weak I made panic and try to turn model back to me, but no luck... Still searching for it, almost 2 weeks for now.
Lost almost new naza, all fpv gear on model, go pro 2,... Model had less than 10 flights...

Wow, I would like to see this happen. It may not be about video, but that is the only way all of us can see the difference and understand.......
