Since you post under "Nickwad Nine Inch Member" I figure you might be willing to go with "Wet Dream."

subbed. Any sample videos from your prototype yet?
I noticed a lot of weird distortion on the videos because of the gimble movement and the dome cover in the italian fishcopter. Would be interesting to see how yours looks.

This is its maiden flight at the lake , slightly stabilized it seems to have lost a bit of quality on youtube compared to the original I will have to look into why later.

More tweaking with gains GofG etc today.

Does anyone have any experience of the pros and cons of using a Gore tex patch
, ie does the bara on the Naza work exactly the same as it does with the cover off?
I am currently using a breather pipe with a small float on the end so it keeps the end of the pipe above the water when the quad is inverted and right side up in the water.
This works ok but I notice the bara does not work 100 % perfectly though?

I am not sure I will go with the name expensive ! Lol

But thanks for the other ideas

Nick

You have now published a video with your device wearing an already trademarked name...I think you should rename the video and just call it "yet to be named" or something. I fly a Scarab, and know Quinton ( Multiwiicopter owner ), so yes, i might sound like i'm on my high horse, but you trading off the back of his name is a no-no....You have a unique looking aqua capable machine......change the name.

How was the camera mounted? Bottom? Fixed or Gimbal?

I can definitely see why you need a watercopter. Float plane would be cool too.
