Wind again from the right direction
forecast called for 15/16 mph and ramping down
When I got to the top at 2:30 I found steady 28 with pulsing sustained gust in the mid 30's
If I had know I would have brought heavier ships..
I flew my 30"12 oz Sizzle for 45 minutes - a amazing little wing ! see {https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...16-GEMS-Sizzle }
I had snow squalls blowing over that limited visibility ,really had to concentrate to keep it in site and not get blown over the back
Next I put my Parkzone Ka -8 up , the wind had subsided to the mid to high 20's most of the time ,blasted around with it for the next 45 or so minutes
When it started to get dark I landed and headed home - a Great way to end the day

If you're in need of a LiPo cell balance checker, balancer, and USB charger: This little iSDT BattGo is worth a look. It's not cheap but it is effective and performs as expected.

I have been wanting to Review this Aircraft since first seeing it and Banggood was kind enough to send one for Review!
This Mustang looks awesome especially with the paint scheme.
It's called a Mini but I would categorize it as a Micro.
It's made of EPP Foam which should make it very durable.

What are the design principles of multi-rotor drones? The multi-rotor UAV design is a comprehensive system, in terms of structure, including aerodynamics, structure, strength, power, materials, technology, shape and so on. Through the overall design indicators, the system is modularized, the modules and the interfaces between the modules are designed, and finally the overall design of the multi-rotor UAV is realized through system integration.

A good industrial designer must be an excellent structural designer. As mentioned earlier, the industrial design of the drone is related to the overall shape, and the shape design is related to the external structural layout, so it is about the multi-rotor drone In the early design stage, the design of Tianma Starry Sky can be performed according to the design concept and design skills. Using divergent thinking, the basic content of the multi-rotor drone's use, function, structure and form is explained.



1.Use

In recent years, with the rapid development of multi-rotor drone technology, there are more and more application scenarios. In military terms, multi-rotor drones are divided into reconnaissance and target aircraft. Reconnaissance aircraft are used to complete battlefield reconnaissance and surveillance, Positioning and firing, damage assessment, electronic warfare, etc .; civil aspects, such as border patrol, logistics and transportation, aerial photography, aerial prospecting, disaster surveillance, traffic patrol,...Continue Reading

Speaking of what tools are currently used when surveying and mapping, currently when surveying outdoors, especially when surveying large areas, people generally choose to use surveying and mapping drones. This is very practical and very Intelligent surveying and mapping tools when used, must also bring many different high-quality effects to people.

First, high efficiency

The use of such drones for surveying and mapping effectively accelerates the surveying and mapping work. In the past, manpower required days or even tens of days of work. It can be completed in just a few hours with drones. Effective promotion.

So most of the surveying and mapping work has been handed over to drones, which can effectively help people save workload and bring better surveying and mapping results.

Second, high accuracy

The use of surveying and mapping drones is not only convenient and efficient, but also its accuracy is very high, because the transmission image can be generated in real-time, and at the same time, the three-dimensional image can be directly given by the subsequent image generation. The data does not need to be retested repeatedly, which brings more convenient and practical surveying results to people.

Third, flexible and high

What we can also see is that with the application of various intelligent technologies in mapping drones, these types of devices are now more flexible to use, not only based on the images returned in real-time. The drone can be operated remotely. At the same time, the next mapping route can be set directly on the chip of the drone, so that the device can automatically survey and map the whole process, which is very convenient and brings a more flexible experience for everyone.
