BetaFPV Beta65 Pro 1S - Flight X (2 min 56 sec)

First flight on my new HappyModel 0802 16000kV motors. I feel like these are far easier to control than the OEM BetaFPV 0603 19000kV motors. Quite happy.

BetaFPV Beta65 Pro 1S - Fifth Flight (1 min 37 sec)

Lowered/changed my RC Smoothing parameters & disabled numerous superfluous options, which appears to have helped with a weird latency I felt on the controls. I still think my monitor/DVR introduces a lot of latency, but this feels way better.

Turkey Day Flight - 3DR Solo (OpenSolo v3.0.0) [GoPro Hero4 Black] (5 min 5 sec)


Giving the Solo a fly after Thanksgiving to test out the gimbal damper mod along with the 180deg shutter with the ND8 filter. Quite happy. My flying is not wonderful, however.

Edmunds Road Walk - 3DR Solo (OpenSolo v3.0.0) [GoPro Hero4 Black] (3 min 42 sec)


Testing out my new Freedom360 ND8 filter on my GoPro Hero4 Black on my 3DR Solo.

This video is a great example of the need to know your settings, and to know what equipment is appropriate for what environment.

Problem 1) Settings for yaw/pitch/roll were cranked up to max. Twitchy, and not suitable for smooth filming.
Problem 2) Walking while controlling (for me) made it very hard to maintain smooth stick inputs.
Problem 3) ND8 filter at dusk was a stupid idea, and pure laziness made me keep it on knowing full well that the lighting was not appropriate for it.
Problem 4) I did not have my GoPro ISO-locked, so the ISO was swinging wildly to keep the frame brightness consistent, degrading image quality severely.

In short: An awful video. Don't be like me.

ST Models ASW-28: Maiden Flight & Crash [L650] (0 min 47 sec)


I bought the ASW-28 two years ago and promised myself that I would not build/fly it until after I finished my Master's thesis.

So, two years on, I build, paint, and get the ASW-28 out to the field to fly as a reward to myself.

I've never flown fixed-wing before, so upon launch I put the plane into a tipstall and it plows right into the fence.

Yep.
