Eflite Extra 300 1.3m BNF Basic Maiden Flight with GoPro Drone Chase


In 1080p 60fps - Best viewed in fullscreen. This is the maiden flight of my Eflite Extra 300 1.3m wingspan BNF Basic. Not only is it my first flight with this amazing machine, it's also my first time being chased and recorded by a drone (thanks Jeff). Given that we aren't pros I think it turned out pretty well!

Eflite Extra 300 1.3m BNF Basic Maiden Flight with GoPro Drone Chase (4 min 7 sec)

My Eflite Extra 300 1.3m is completely stock. Powered by a Pulse 4S 2250mAh 45C lipo, weighing in at 240 grams. CG was set rearmost to 100mm from the leading edge of the main wing at the fuselage. Flight Timer was set to 3 minutes as recommended by the manual. Flown with a Spektrum DX8 G2 Transmitter at 100% rates and 30% expo on all control surfaces.

Jeff's Drone is a Diatone GT-M530, Ethik S3 props, Frisky R9M Rx, VAS Ion antenna, Frisky Taranis Tx with R9 Long Range Module, GoPro Session 5.

Thanks for the video capture Jeff!

And as always, thanks for watching!

Mine is the BNF Basic version and the RX was already in place situated in the underside belly of the fuselage . All I had to do was straighten the dual antennas so that they were 90 degrees from each other (see attached photo) and secure them with tape. So long as they’re 90 degrees from each other you’re maximizing the effectiveness of the reception.

Does this help?
