Hi all. Wall-E wanted to end his vacation with some hang gliding, but all the hang gliders were in use. He came back to work early and I decided it would be a good opportunity to test the lifting power of my V686 quadcopter.
Its not hang gliding, but Wall-E had fun anyway!

I had to do the testing indoors because it was raining outside. It took 3 tries, but I finally got him off the ground. I knew that lifting a heavy load would shorten the flight time, but I wasn't prepared for how much. Seems "Murphy" was working overtime also. The batteries in my camera died shortly in the successful flight.
I didn't have any replacement batteries for the camera and my smart phone needed charging also.

I did get a short clip of Wall-E flying. I am surprised at the lifting power of this small but mighty quad. In boating news, the Chameleon had her maiden lake run
after the new modifications to her front floats. She ran well but slow. See my thread in Dock Talk for a video and more details.
