I wish y'all nice & peaceful holidays and all the best for 2013!

Thx to everyone who supported us getting the AQ6 project to what it is now.
I'm sure 2013 will bring up more interesting developments and amazing products for the whole MR scene.

The AQ6 team will constantly be trying to act innovative besides being helpful to get your AP/AV craft airborne.

All the best,

Norbert

Dammit, we've created a monster!

It's getting creepy hearing her telling you that she's doing exactly what you've told her to do. This is not normal!

Other than that: congratz on your 100th post@RCG and your damn good flight!

Next would be interesting to watch, what she is looking at.
Seeing the world through her eyes, ya know?

LOL funny you said that I was just looking at go cam's!! You should see it at night in the dark its freaky I'll try and video it one night in the next few days when wind is not blowing so bad. The wind was blowing about 10-15mph if you look at the tree's in the background around the 3:30 mark but it didn't faze her at all!

ESC calibration

Hi What is the best way to calibrate the throttle range on standard ESCs?
normally one would plug each esc into the RX and set it individually.
But we cannot do that with the satellite rx. Auto calibration would be lovely!

Now that's what I call a motivational video. Very cool

Cheers,
Rusty (must make time to play with this...)

You still need a full Rx to bind the satellite so you would use that to calibrate the ESCs the normal way.

that was indeed awesome skew. I have been waiting hoping that the calibration procedure would be simplified even knowing the "why" behind it all. May have to put AQ on my "next thing to check out" list

The calibration was not as bad as it looks. I think I got my board on a Saturday and had it in the air on Tuesday. I bet there has been 20 5min+ missions done on mine in the last few days. I have no issues with it now after everything is tuned for my airframe now just got to wait for spring. My neighbors are seeing UFOs I'm flying day and night lol

Kinderkram,thanks for the help I'm working on buying a onboard camera. I also made this video last night but I put my older batterys in and hit the low voltage alarm and had to cut it short. I will try and shoot a full mission tonight with good batterys.

Any reported UFO sightings in the neighbourhood so far?
Very nice night flight.

btw: if you wanna go cheap on an onboard cam you could try this one for ~45$:

HD @30fps and a video out might fit your needs. Haven't tried it so far but read nice reports about it.

AutoQuad - Case

Hi All,

This is not a final design.
Still more to add and remove to that model like light view and some sizing to fit better.

But i want you to give me some feedback
