Hi guys!

This afternoon, I 've been flying...It was cloudy and the ground wet, but I wanted to fly so much!
I asked for a friend if he could record it using his mobile phone.
The quality is really bad, but...This is! My quad flying! :D

Thanks. Amazing that you get that stability with those flat arms as opposed to square arms...

The worst part is that with the firsts hits against floor, now the four arms are some bended and not really perpendicular
In the video, I was "doing" some effort to get it hovering...but I'm a total rookie pilot. It was my fifth flight!

Well, try square arms instead, they seem the best/cheapest you can get for this task anyways...

It didn't look so "rookie" when you flew, I think it looked to be very much in the same place all the time. Then you have windy days to practice on too, that's always fun having the quad tilting 10-20 degrees just to fight the wind :P
