impressive performance, lucky you were low and slow when the esc gave up

Headtracker seems nice and smooth!

And Ouch! on the crash!

Got some photos done with the quadcopter again today, need something that will last longer =[ only getting around 3 minutes flight time before the KK2 is buzzing like mad!
Getting more confident using the screen most of the time now, although had a small crash from a quick landing, followed by gust of wind about 2 foot off the ground, just snapped the landing gear and got sand all over the frame =]

Have you set the kk2 voltage alarm? mine starts beeping waaaaaay before I have to land and if I take off full throttle on a new battery it beeps. I just ignore it now until it's just a constant beeping. I sohuld adjust it really, just haven't got round to it.

Yep, set the alarm etc, mine does the same.
When it flatlines, then its time to land!
