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!
