First Test Video


Here is the first video from my Hoverfly Pro mounted on my new x468 frame. The vibration isolation seems to work well. This is with the Hoverfly Pro set at a 50% gain in my Dx8 radio. No tweaks or adjustments yet, right out of the box so to speak : D

Just slapped some unbalanced 12x3.8 APC props on there and took it for a flight this evening:

Hey David,

No worries on the mug, I think in the video above I tortured others with my ugly mug as well.

I replied to your PM as well but just in case others come across this thread I figured I would answer here as well.

I think you need to calibrate your ESCs one at a time with your Transmitter. Hook one up to the throttle channel of your receiver, unplug everything else from your receiver. With props removed, turn on your transmitter and put the throttle to the max. Then power up your ESC and if it's hooked to a motor you should hear beeps, lower your throttle and the ESC should beep some more. Power down the ESC and move on to the next one.

This calibrates your ESC to the max and min throttle of your radio.

Hope this helps fix your problem.

Paul

Nice first flight Dave, I just have one question: Which is your shop the big door or the little door? Nice house and landscaping too.
Seriously I have not tried the Hoverfly pro FC but it seems to perform fine. Keep up the blog and the good flying.


Cheers
