Really well made and piloted! I found the music and the very calm flying a little funny somehow :)

I saw your other video with the crash and the dreaded beeps of death. Nice that it made it even though it was crashing on the tarmac! You seem like one of the few who actually manages to fly nose in! A hard art...

Thank you Honk!

This track is from the old computer game Grim Fandango - a great game!

Yes the crash was bad and it is due to my ESC settings to LIPO and not NIMH
(Set NIMH to prevent sudden power drops like that)

When I fly and record I always think of the end result - I want the best experience for the viewer.

Yesterday I had exact same crash indoors after some serious moves and fun flying (I did not change ESC yet)
I only broke 1 prop and 1 motor mount but that is easily changed as I only mount motors with 2 screws and can rotate the motor 1/4 turn.
(2 spares on each motor)

Now I have to finish my gyro assisted camera mount..to make image even more relaxed :)

Overall the MultiWii software is very impressive and I suggest you all to try it at least once.

My Aeroquad is on hold as I did not yet order an oilpan.
(The arduino Mega1280 is lying on my desk with only the SPC1000 connected)


I followed your progress as well - great work so far
Best regards

Thank you Kenny9999!

This is recorded with GoProHD in mode r3 then edited in Sony Vegas.

My intentions with this Quadcopter-rig is aerial photo/video and FPV.

So far I only did FPV with my Tricopter - you see my recordings on my webpage - www.undcon.com (and on my youtube account)

I am also finishing off a Skywalker that is going to be used for Aerial photo/video and FPV

I'm building this one slow - I got it a few months back when it was lots of snow everywhere and far to cold to fly FPV. but I will have it finished soon...

Best Regards

Ok, from what I know, we can't have that resolution on FPV,

I'm a bit on that currently! what kind of Tx/Rx you will used for the FPV? I ordered this http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=13443

I fly with 2.4Ghz Spektrum DX7 and have 1.3Ghz Video link.

The GoPro HD have regular TV-out if you want to use that for FPV
