It Flies!

Here is my first Night flight with our Dualsky Hornet 460 Quadcopter. Every thing is stock, including the LED lights. It took me 40 minutes to build it. Night flying is super cool!

Well,
An AR Drone is more stable because of the gyros installed. This has a gyro to control the motors, but not to return it to neutral when the sticks are released. The lights are really cool though. It is pretty easy to fly and you do not have to tweak anything to get it fly stable.

It is easier to fly then a helicopter. I will have more videos soon! I get home tonight.

Mark

One of the jumpers is for powering the LED's. I am not sure what the other is for, but you do need to connect it. I have sent an email to the lead engineer at Dualsky and will have an answer soon!

I have not had anyone else report this issue. Could it have been interference on the receiver? If you had no control then that seems more receiver or TX related.

I was told buy the Australian distributor that the cause is pulling up from fast forward flight the quad gets the wabbles and will crash if you don't give it more throttle so ill fix it and see what happens

I have heard that also, but only from Australia. The UK distributer I talked to has not seen any issues not have we. I talked with Dualsky and they said it only maybe happen in very fast forward flight.
