Nose cam 2 4 U

Flight #2 with nose cam had slightly less vibration. Added more padding and weighed down a flybar paddle. Need complete foam isolation from the fuselage. The camera still has a bolt link to the fuselage.

Full autopilot was enabled and completely ineffective. The PID loops would have 2 B retuned 2 handle a 9oz camera. With the significant battery drain, it would take a lot of recharges. The short flight times & need 4 retuning make autopilot for HD a waste.

autopilot + nose cam 2 (1 min 16 sec)

One other thing. Vicacopter is on KQED tomorrow nite at 8.
