Oh fuck yeah.

We have drones at work that we play around with, would love to borrow them and do this. Would get asses handed to us, but shit would be fun.

To clarify

I got the Drone Race Type A
1 extra battery. Batteries can be sourced here so when I get better will buy some more.
Got the extra charger for above.
FTV screen and clamps to connect to the remote. Like I said, suspect I will get motion sickness.
Shit loads of blades. (Mates here have a CNC mill so we plan on making some modded frames in the mills.)

Hopefull we make this ;

 


Work mates bought them too.

Update - ordered it on Saturday, DHL tracker shows it passed customs successfully, and now bouncing around somewhere in QLD. So eta is Monday.

And I will be in Bundy on annual leave the day the fucker arrives at my office.

Will post pics next week though.

And on a side note for those who want one, be careful for the GST / customs part. If your drone is over $1,000 it can be held for GST import tax. Or soemthing, I never got hit with it as mine was under $1,000 but the other guys here who bought them purchased kits 1,500 and were slowed down for it.

OK got an aalbum up.

This is very rushed and in no order as I am trying to do this on annual leave with two bored kids who are looking at this thing like its a cheap $5 toy and want to smash it.

http://imgur.com/a/UfPJM

Not in order, but I took images from opening the box to opening each box separate. This is very sweet and very WELL organised. When I get shit from BNE sent here its like a 4yr old packed it. This has effort in it and every thing works. I did two flights.

1st flight in side and fucked up bad, had two props on back to front but then worked that out. Then took off from the box it was on and it hooked and cart wheeled into the floor. FUCKING DANGEROUS ! ! It can cut you. Blades snapped and flew across the room. Carbon fibre frame and camera - all ok. Blades are cheap and replaceable and easy. SO SUPER Easy to mod / change out.

2nd flight outside (slight wind) Drone didn't care much about wind as it wasn't strong enough, but the pilot was a tool. I did some simple flights and when bringing it back to land I didn't see a long blade of grass and hit it. It pulled the drone into another cart wheel and snapped the props on a concrete slab. All ok just changed the broken props. All back n working.

I have stopped for now and am assembling the FPV system to the controls as the kids right now are using it to watch on and I need it as its really handy to have and gives a great view of what yours about to crash into Smiley

Catch ya - go get one - my kit Just over 1000. Smiley
