Testing my v939 micro quadcopter with a micro keychain camera on it. There aren't many vibrations but the quadcopter doesn't move as smoothly as the larger one. I still need to find a way to shed some weight to improve the flight performance.

It stopped raining, and I managed to get my plane out and fly around a bit before the rainbow went away. Here is the video that I got. It is slowed down for stability because it was a bit windy at the time of the flight. Watch for the double rainbow at the end.

The HK250GT build is coming along nicely. I have installed all of the electronics, balanced the blades and started the mechanical setup. I just need to setup the swash plate as far as blade pitch and servo travel. I also need to get the gyro working correctly. The gyro or tail servo isn't working properly and I need to get that figured out before I do anything else. I am very close to being finished though and I am planning on finishing it up as soon as I finish rebuilding my Slash 4x4. Pictures are below.

Here is a video shot from on my quadcopter with a Gopro. I had a bad crash at the start of my summer and after alot of problems I finally got the quadcopter to fly well again. Since the last videos from it I have changed the control board, arms, propellers, PID and the position of the camera and battery. Here is the video:

It rained really hard here the other day, harder than I have seen it rain here before. There was a little trickle of water flowing down the wash that my RC track is in, but it was enough to do some damage to the RC track. It wasn't to hard to fix, luckily. Here are some pictures:

Recently I started having problems with my current micro CP helicopter. I was fed up with it, so I ordered a HobbyKing 250 GT kit. It arrive in the mail the other day, and it is such a nice helicopter. It is all carbon fibre and machined aluminum. I got it almost all built last night, and I can't wait to finish it and get it flying. Here are some pictures from the HK website:

A few days ago I purchased a Losi 8ight e buggy. It was very nice. I put it all together and took it for a run on the local RC track. It has amazing handling and is so fast compared to short course trucks! Pictures and videos coming soon.
