Mini Skywalker FPV

I had some crazy fun with my 260g Mini Skywalker last weekend. Sorry about the low-res quality, but that's what a 1g nano camera (on nano pan servo) delivers. Those Dutch hills are man made (ex garbage dumps) by the way.

Mini Skywalker FPV, at mini meeting, first flight (5 min 10 sec)

This video contains a bit of everything (except formation flying and crashes). I landed it just in time, at the same moment the ESC low voltage cut off did it's job.


Mini Skywalker FPV, chasing Easy Glider Pro and landing into Niels' hands. (6 min 37 sec)

This is my favourite video because at the end a buddy asked me to do a FPV landing into his hands. After deciding where he should stand (on the footpath because I could see that better), I approached and landed straight into his palms
The first part starts with intercepting and chasing an Easy Glider Pro. Then some stunting that was a little too low for comfort at the 5:35 mark.

Thanks, it must be that it's a tricopter and not a quad

The videosystem is actually the basic starter package from readymaderc.com running with stock antennas at 1320 Mhz. I get a lot of glitches when trees/houses are in the way but I have learned to fly with those

If I had a nickel...
Didn't seem like such a bad crash, but certainly made a mess of your
arms and their mounts. That's why I built my own tricopter frame
(see profile). I've lost it like you did over pavement, and been
flying again 10 minutes later.

That little nano camera performs pretty good!, is that the same camera RMRC stocks?. Do you have a link to the exact one you have.


Cheers.

I think all nano cameras are the same, except mine uses a wide angle lens that I bought seperately because the standard lens is too narrow for FPV. Foxtechfpv carries similar cameras with mic and 90 degree FOV lens built in and the quality is probably the same. That would be my choice if I had to buy a new one.

Yea the frame looked cool but certainly didn't crash well next one will be similar to your build.

I have this frame from blueskyrc that works pretty good. 39 $ and very resistant and easy to repair. Must provide arms, I used slow stick fiberglass fuselage square rods and fill them up with balsa.
