Flights of my Sky Viper V2450FPV Drone


This thread will be of aerial videos of flights of my Sky Viper V2450FPV Drone and any replies.


Flights of my Sky Viper V2450FPV drone 11-2017 (13 min 5 sec)


Montage of several flights (incl. maiden flight) of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone from 11-08-17 to 11-10-17.

That music that you hear is from the demo, "Second Reality" aka., "Unreal II" by the Finnish pee-cee computer demo group Future Crew.
This product is not audio- (sound-)sensitive in any manner; the music may safely be ignored or even muted if it pisses you off.

Flight of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone 11-11-17 (1) (4 min 37 sec)



Flight of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone 11-11-17 (1)

Flight took place over the 1020-block of Ellinor Ave. in Shelton WA. USA at 8:32am PST on 11-11-17 (or, "2017 11 Nov." or even, "November 11, Twenty Stick-Busted-Stick" if you prefer).

Weather conditions at flight time were cloudy with light fog (visibility approx. 500 feet {~152.4 meters}; IFR for real pilots; VFR for low-altitude R/C pilots, temperature was 43F (6.1C), and winds reported as being clam at the surface.

This drone ***DOES NOT*** make an excellent camera platform primarily because it is so nimble & responsive and does not have a gimbal -- the camera is hard-mounted into the drone's fuselage.

The rapid rotation that you see shortly after takeoff is not a malfunction; I did that intentionally to see how the drone does cyclones. As you can see, it isn't bad at all! :-)

For an as-of-yet unknown reason, the camera has an obvious tilt -- the aircraft itself appears to fly correctly. :-/

I wondered if that was fog or smoke...given the number of fires people have suffered through recently. Glad to hear it was just a very moody and, dare I say it?, atmospheric shot you were able to record. You'll smooth out as you gain experience with that drone.

Watch out for those reports of calm winds at the surface. It's the ones you run into just at the treetops that have burned me.

I'm already aware that winds at the surface can easily be significantly slower than winds aloft -- however on occasion I've flown when wind speeds at altitude were a lot SLOWER than they were at the surface.

The rapid rotation to port (left) and starboard (right) that you see shortly after takeoff is not a malfunction; I did that intentionlly to watch the drone do cyclones.

Brief* flight of my Sky Viper V2450FPV drone 11-16-17 (3 min 14 sec)


Brief* flight of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone 11-16-17 (1)

Flight took place over a vacant lot near the intersection of Olympic Hwy. N. & Ellinor Ave. in Shelton WA. USA at 3:11pm PST on 11-16-17 (or, "2017 16 Nov." or even, "November 16, Twenty Stick-Busted-Stick" if you prefer).

Weather conditions at flight time were cloudy, temperature was 45F (7.2C), and winds reported as being clam at the surface.

I look kinda pissed in this video even though I'm really not; a serious brain operation that I had in late-2002 robbed me of my ability to smile.
I really ***DO*** love the living tweedle out of flying my drones!!!
The same operation also left me with a "googly eye" which is why I look a bit queer (pun not intended).

* Brief because I accidently neutralised the remote due to the location & type of "POWER" button, causing the drone to land in the southbound lane of Olympic Hwy. I got it refired and attempted to take off, but while it was lifting off, a car doing about 40mph (~64.4kph) slammed into it. Amazingly enough, when the driver returned it to me, the only visible damage was a small plastic window covering the LED on the front port (left) pylon was missing. I made a brief test flight, and everything seems to be in order!

EXTREMELY BRIEF* flight of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone 11-17-17 (1) (0 min 47 sec)


EXTREMELY BRIEF* flight of my Sky Viper V2450FVP Camera Drone 11-17-17 (1)

Flight took place over the parking lot of the Four Square Church located near the intersection of Dearborn Ave. and Ridge Rd. in Shelton WA. USA at 7:34am PST on 11-17-17 (or, "2017 17 Nov." or even, "November 17, Twenty Stick-Busted-Stick" if you prefer).

Weather conditions at flight time were cloudy, temperature was 35F (1.7C), and winds reported as being clam at the surface.

* EXTREMELY BRIEF because for an as-of-yet unknown reason, the two joysticks on the radio mysteriously switched functions. Pitch & roll are now on the left stick, and throttle & yaw are now on the right stick. I've never flown a quad in this mode before, and I do not know how to change them back. The 'Restore Factory Settings' procedure outlined in the instructional materials did not do the job, nor did power-cycling the radio. My only logical solution now is to learn how to fly Mode 1 (as R/C hobbyists know it).

(EDIT a short time later): I figured it out. I figured out how to change the radio back to Mode 2. I figured out Blue Clues!!!
