Just an overall test for stability and vibration. Shot with Panasonic SD9 with wide angle adapter. I have since added some expo for smoothness. You can tell my trim was a bit off in roll.....

Wow! Pretty sharp picture there! And what an amazing scenery! Looks like a big movie with fake mountains... :P

I'm also impressed with that you can do nose-in flying! Seems like very few quad people can handle that!

What quad is it?

Thanks. I'm running a mega with the 2.0 shield. 60cm rotor spacing. Aluminum towel bars and some plywood. Just gyros and accels at the moment.
I have been flying helis for a while now, so the flying is not the hard part. It's the coding I'm not so good at. I have a book on the way, time to learn something new....

Maybe us coders should try to learn flying instead of coding so much?! :P

But coding is good to know for everyday use actually.

Here is a another test, this time with a GoPro. Need to figure out the best rendering settings for this one. There is a bit of vibration softness, but this is due to the camera being rigidly mounted to the quads frame. With a proper mount, footage should be smooth.

Here is another one from yesterday. When I bring it close to the ground about half way through, I am switching to acro mode for some more speed.
