It's a good thing there were witnesses. Imagine how hard it would be to believe the r/c pilot's story if he was alone. "Yeah, a helicopter swooped down and took it out of the tree and delivered it to me!" Sure, buddy, let's see you pass a drug test.

Gps position hold should not be use here! I think the aircraft is hunting the reflectives position.

Either way, if you see your rig is taken away by the wind, you can override it. Poor piloting however you see it.

OK with 5S - Need to change few capacitor and DC-DC Converter due to different in input voltage.

Joe: Very nice, and very professional. A lot of different locations, you sure have been busy!

Cinestar 6 is back in the air! I only had to replace an arm and a leg, but I spent the better part of the afternoon checking over everything,
and making sure things were fine in MKTools. Did a test without props, then tied down with weight and props. No problems found. Idle seems a bit fast. I still have no clue why my CS6 took off as soon as it was armed. It took off back and to the right, just like I had the stick.... The Graupner log showed the throttle as off or zero. Might not ever figure it out but it flew PERFECT today!
Can motor idle be adjusted to be a bit slower? I did notice an increase in motor speed when I disarmed, must be because of the yaw? Probably was there before but I was as cognizant.

You can set min speed in MKtools. I think default is 8.
It's normal that you see some speed variation when you push full yaw during disarming.

I see the same yaw on disarm. Glad you got her back in the air so quickly. I understand looking for the root cause. Too bad the gpx data was not available, might have seen some clues there. We are in a habit of checking these after each flying session and looking for glitches.

mww

Thanks dragant and Wright: I'll check the MKtool idle as soon as I get the dinning room ceiling out back together! We must have had 4 to 5 gallons come in! Some kinda leak in the cooper clad bay window roof. Has only leaked twice ever in 25 years, but Sandy tore it up! The more drywall I removed the more fell off! lol

Dragant: nice job! What rig are you flying? Do you use FPV to line up your shots or is it all LOS?

@joecanrnine - nothing special, I do simple editing in Premiere and than import project in After Effects for further editing (stabilization where's needed and just levels correction). Than render to HD1080 H264 and upload.

@glmccready - I have old MK Okto26 and Droidworx AD8 (MK electronics). Most of times I fly LOS but I have 7" monitor for framing.
