Ok, this is just damn funny. I took RD-5 my latest contraption running AQ1.9/2.5 Beta (that kinda looks like a turkey) and took it outside for a test flight on fresh defaults, and let my Asus Transformer Tablet shoot the video (as a test on low quality) and low and behold, my quad started gobbling like a turkey!!!! Check it out:

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving :)

Ok, took a chance and clicked on another video, no problems this time. :-)

Yes, sounds a lot like a turkey. Must be resonance from the CD cover.
Is that the FPV landing skids from HobbyKing? I was thinking of getting one, but it looked kind of flimsy and seemed like it would need a lot of glue to keep it together. Any opinions on it?

Starting to look cold up there. Don't want to rub it in, but I was sweating bullets down here today.

@elchan Thanks for taking the risk ;-)

Its actually the props howliing during the wobbles/gobbles, since it does this naked too (with no lid) ;-) This is the first time I have used oring prop adapters, might have something to do with it. I have heard it before on my other AQ units, just no so much like a turkey LOL

Yes it is the HK FPV landing gear, here is my mini review:
Pros)
Rock solid.
good materials, nice and thick.
easy to build.
cheap cheap cheap

cons)
lots of CA
needs trimming to make it fit
makes your quad look like a turkey LOL
heavy
