Having some jello problems, I probably should have gone through the frame and tightened everything up.

Paul,
That was Excellent and I guess I need to put it up on the large screen to find the jello you were talking about.. didn't notice any.

Sorry for the crap video but it was more of a trial run than anything else. It does not compare to some of the beautiful videos you guys have been posting but it's a start I put more effort into animating the intro than I did anything else. The footage is raw and there are some shakey moments but that was just my thumbs not listening to me! No post-production at all ..

Threw 2 random soundtracks in to eliminate the drone of the props.. etc.

Funny part is I never noticed the deer at 1:09 until I was reviewing the video on my PC. Cool!

Anyway :

Doing Great! Nice open fields behind the house with deer. Done the same thing, did not notice the deer till I viewed the video on the screen. Now you have something to go find and Chase. But don't drop HT - FPV in the been field, pain in the arse to find

Here's what I would do. Get a GoPro tripod adapter. Drill a hole in the HT-FPV frame camera mount ledge. Screw the tripod adapter to the frame (top side of the camera mount flange) with a 1/4x20 (I believe) nylon screw. Mount the GoPro case to the tripod adapter. Now your camera is on the top side (better protection), you can easily tilt and lock it in for the desired viewing angle, you don't have to set your GoPro to 'invert' the image.

I just got my NTM 750kv motors yesterday. Looks like I'll get them mounted tomorrow (and fix my 'no-video' problem I induced the last time I was messing around with the wiring in my HT-FPV frame. I'll be trying the new motors on 9" props on 4S.

Thanks man! Yeah, I really don't need to go searching for anything back there. Hmmm. Maybe I'll turn my othe quad into a search and rescue quad for lost bean field quads!!

Yes , deer will be stalked!

Fly at dusk, the best way to reduce jello

Why thank you! Gotta say that your video was top notch. Gives me a goal!

So true about dusk. I wait for it like a vampire!

I have several Pelican cases for various thing. This is by far, the biggest one I have. I am 220 pounds and can stand on it without hurting my quadcopter.
Thanks. Good news is that I have 2 1620s! The perspective in your picture made it look less deep than the 1620 is I'm reality. Was throwing me off!

I used one of my 1620s for video gear back in the day. Looks like I'll be ordering a new set of foam ASAP! You're right. Those things are indestructible!

I have a hot wire foam cutter that I've done loads of gun cases with. The pluck foam annoys me but works well enough.

Thanks for the clarification!

Thanks Ken, glad you liked it but I can't believe you didn't see all the jello, especially in the beginning when the sun was up.

Thanks though!
