The eye in the sky .. Bird view in gliding mode... 1st video ;)


Hi ...

Just wanted to share this unique experience .. it's a lot of fun indeed .. intense and immersive experience .

Now I'd love to do that in FPV .. flapping and gliding .. in high wind .. well .. someday my dream will come true .. I'll start saving from now ..

I hope you enjoy it

Khaled

Your video is good in gliding mode. How about to inclining the camera angle ?

Khaled,

Nice video, I have a similar camera. After I get used to flying my LH, I would like to take it up and video the experience as well. After seeing how well your bird handled the camera, I have no doubt that my LH can handle the weight.

Hi Jason

I've posted the tail position photos for you so you can have a reference for your tail setup .. at neutral and at launch positions ...

No doubt the Lazy hawk can handle that camera .. and you can expect a long joyful glide too ...

Hi, Khaled

Thank you for the reference. I realized that if i turned my servo around 90 degrees so the arm is closer to the tail, that I get more travel out of the movement of the elevator. I can move it from about 35 degrees to almost flat. I'm a lot more happier with it now because I could not get the results before with the servo arm farther from the tail.

Thanks Again, You are a lot of help for this forum.

Hi Jason ..

Thanks you're most welcome ...

Please keep in mind that whatever you do to your tail .. it still has to have a an up angle in neutral to get a level flight at least for now ..then you can tinker with it .. but it's a lot safer to have an up angle in the tail than to have a flat tail .. it may cause a nose dive when you launch it if you have a flat tail .. so slowly but surely ..

again around 15degree at neutral position , around 20 degree at launch ,,,

Looks like I'll have to wait until the end of the week before I attempt a flight. The forecast is for windy conditions until Friday.

Hi Brian ...

That clip is showing the gliding (none flapping) part of the flight .. so it's not shaky and it shouldn't be ... the difficult part is how to get a stable vision during flapping ...

I wonder how Mr Robert Musters will do it .. pretty difficult I suppose .. but not for him ...
