Some updates to the pics;

This is after I hit the concrete slab side on a bit;

This is the FPV that mounts to the controller;

and after mounting it; took a bit of effort but its done and needed if you lose sight. As I am on a hill I don't worry if it drops behind it as I can see the drone from the TV.

However, it is heavy now and needs the straps around my neck.

And lastly, I am down to 1 CC prop and 1C prop. I love it Smiley

Good thing I have a bag of them spare. And being white should stand out more.

Extra bits I learnt - getting the extra battery and better charger is good as its not only got the lcd, but its programmable and shows you the cells life and will decharge and recharge as one of the many functions it has. Better than the other charger which you just plug on and pray.

Edit - bought more props and some landing gear. I am thrashing this thing. Thank god its a mod design and the carbon fibre is all I need. And I also like the different colours and have ordered some new colours and extras .... and OMG.

DO NOT GET ONE. Its fun and sucks life from your bank account in mods.

One thing, It looks like the lens of the FPV camera sticks out the front of the drone... Is there some kind of facebars (like on a cricket helmet) you could get to protect it in the event of further concrete cartwheeling?

Correct - the Type A has no protection on the top, just the underneath. Which means both the battery and the camera are exposed. So if you flip and land upside down, they may be damaged. I have a mate with a cnc mill making me a carbon fibre add on to go over / extend over the top (Just a copy of the 250). The 250 SRD drone has the extended hood over the top and back. But I was not prepared to spend the extra cash when I can get extra chasis manufactured cheap.

Just chased the dog.

Drone is out of action for 4 days till new landing gear gets in. I can fly it by taking off and landing on gras. But me landing on grass is not that 100% yet. And would prefer to have landing struts before I skull drag the fuck out of it more.

And, still fun Smiley

OK 1st video

Sorry we have 2gb of Video and this is all that turned out Sad

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cwb9badgh8hdls3/MVI_8709.MOV?dl=0

OK am trying to upload one more. We were in a car park next to work and just kicking around. Sorry but our camera man was also playing around with a new camera so we were all newbies.

We didn't break it, we had a few close calls and lost track of which way was left right etc but we had a fun time Smiley

More to come soon  I hope.

I know - I am a pretty bad pilot and need a lot of practice. All up I have a total of 19 mins of flight time with the thing.

Kids are killing me and I have just changed jobs so I am under heavy time constraints.

Ah, well you're probably doing respectably for 19 minutes of flight time. You made it sound like you've spent hours with it now.

Grab this video compressor

https://handbrake.fr/

Easy as to use, and does a great job. For the stuff I'm doing at them moment, Adobe Premiere produces 450meg avi files, and Handbrake reduces them to 25 meg mp4 with no discernible loss of quality.

OK first Drone Prac and hopefully a race is on this Sunday at the Gladstone Areo club. Am just flying with one other noob in the bottom of the barrel groups.

See if I can fly into a pylon an at full speed. Smiley If not and I survive, I will dedicate my wins (or crashes) to the Deathinc Team Smiley

Fuck I hope some one has a camera to record with.
