I got this under the tree this morning and started building before 7 o'clock. Had it done around lunchtime and just maidened it, flies nice! However the AA's in my DX5e died out so I had to cut the flying session a little short.

DVR froze up on me after recording a couple flights probably just the cold, I guess

wow ! that was a fast build.. did you make it under the table whilst eating your Christmas dinner ?
what DVR have you got ? is it the BEVRC one ? Some people report that it freezes with prolonged static episodes when it is recording at the highest quality setting. did you have much static during the flight ?

I see you have the standard antenna on the plane so i guess you have a normal one on the receiver too. I guess you are on 5.8GHz, you really should try the cirular polarised antennas such as the cloverleaf or the skew planar to avoid bad video signals and give the DVR a chance to reord on high quality

If it is what I say then try at medium quality and see how it goes...

No it's the one from Hobby Wireless. Yeah it froze on static. I'm testing out the stock whip antenna on the RX too... because I don't fly far enough away to lug the patch around with me anyway

And yeah it was a fast build. I actually KNEW what I was DOING this time around started at around 6:30 AM and finished at around 11:30. Took a break for breakfast though

I added some colors on it too - a little red on the wingtips and yellow/blue/orange in other places with permanent markers

Video(s) to come soon!

Nice one ! quite a record.... I think it would be better if you angle the camera down so you have 2/3 ground when flying level...
So I guess this is your recorder and yes it is the same that I mentioned above. if you cannot avoid the static then go ahead and record in medium resolution to avoid the freezes.

regarding the *epic* paint scheme, next time try to use you mum's or sister's lipstick they have a deeper colour than colouring crayons

Using lipstick to colour a plane is a tad weird, even compare to the guys in the FPV summit tread that buy Barbies to put in their truck. Hum, maybe I could put some on my Barbie's lips though...

Wow, this tread is certainly shifting to turtle speed. No videos for a while, not even a Happy New Year (here it is now) !

Wake up to some summit FPV driving:
